A local company that made the stuff shut down operations in Va. A friend who worked at the plant called and said "if you want some of this stuff send the flat bed asap". I sent the 40 flatbed and they filled it up with rolls of this stuff. It's 1/4" thick and very strong. widths range from 10 to 24' in rolls from 50-75' long. It's some type of water filter for the pulp industry. After he'd loaded the trailer he slipped over to the driver and wispered that the retail was a little over $1,000,000.. the driver almost fell out. These were overruns and misc. rolls that didn't fit into any of their final orders and they just needed to get rid of it. We've got a shed full of the stuff. It's a great wind-stop.

Sometimes good things do fall out of the sky.
