RAKSO STEELWOLL PADS are available in nine grades which are all arranged in an easy-to-use colour-coded system: YELLOW represents fine wool, ORANGE is medium and RED is coarse.
The fine wools, numbered 0000, 000 and 00, can be used for smoothing wood after staining, reapplying wax to waxed wood, cleaning plastic blinds and garden furniture thoroughly yet gently, and buffing up aluminium, copper and brass.
The medium wools, numbered 0, 1 and 2, can be used for smoothing wood after priming, removing old paint with solvents, sanding plasterboard, removing residual dirt from tiles and stone flooring, and polishing copper piping and fittings prior to soldering.
The coarse wools, numbered 3, 4 and 5, are ideal for accentuating the natural grain of softwoods (e.g. pine and spruce), scratch-free cleaning of glass stone and glass bricks, and for giving a distressed shabby-chic look to old coats of varnish and paint.
