From baled excelsior to Aspen animal bedding to evaporative cooler pads, wood excelsior products have an almost endless list of applications.

We use Great Lakes all natural aspen as a wood source for all of our wood excelsior products. We purchase aspen from only forest products companies that are members of the Sustainable Forestry Initiatives program. This ensures that the best environmental and forestry management practices are followed. We are proud of our environmental stewardship commitment.

Aspen Bed is a premium small animal contact bedding product that is used by many leading laboratories, science centers, reptiles, breeding farms, and pet centers. It provides superior nesting for small animals who like to burrow or nest. As Aspen Bed is odorless, virtually dust free, and highly absorbent, it provides animals with a healthier environment. Aspen Bed is not a by-product of some other manufacturing process. It is made from all natural aspen specifically for use as contact bedding material. Also, in the poultry industry, our excelsior poultry and nest pads have been used for many decades by leading poultry and egg producers.
In the packaging industry, wood excelsior is an ideal product to use to protect and cushion larger, heavier, or more irregularly shaped products such as heavy parts or statuary products. The unique, curled excelsior fibers have a barbing feature which enables the fibers to interlock which provides excellent packing and cushioning capabilities not found with other types of packaging materials and is biodegradable making it an environmentally safe product. For protecting smaller and lighter fragile products such as china, glassware, and pottery products, our Curlex® packaging pads feature excelsior fibers encapsulated in paper for natural cushioning.
Wood excelsior fibers are also widely used as a filtration medium ranging from filtering oil in combustion engines, oil field filtering and vinegar filtration. The interlocking, barbing features of the fibers combined with low moisture content from air curing results in highly absorbent fibers capable of filtering without any artificial additives. In the construction industry, excelsior is also used in tunneling and pipe installations to help fill void areas.
For the sports person and outdoors enthusiast, Curlex® Power StopTM excelsior banded archery targets have long been recognized as a leading archery target backstop. Highly compressed excelsior provides superior stopping power even for high powered arrows. Curlex Power Stop targets are durable, can be left outside year-round, are available in several different sizes and are made of heavy construction to deter theft. They are ideal for commercial or club ranges, and for backyard use.
Other applications for wood excelsior fiber products include applications for ceiling boards, taxidermy, burn blocks at fire training schools, concrete extender, oil booms, pipeline padding and snake bedding. The application list is nearly endless.
