The most common uses of iron-filings
are electromagnetism experiments, chemistry experiments, art
works, Powder metallurgy, fire works (sparklers), concrete additive, and sand blasting.
use iron filings to draw or reveal

In electromagnetism science experiments
iron powder is used to assess and compare the strength of
electromagnets. The most iron filing is lifted - the stronger a magnet
Iron filings are also used to make
magnetic puttys, magnetic toys, artistic drawings, magnetic paint, heavy
