lana fina / lanilla de bronce (para pulir un casco)
Explanation:
en contraposición a la lana de acero, que por ser de un metal más rígido, podría raspar demasiado la superficie, en vez de pulirla.

la traducción al inglés de estropajo es scourer. To scour significa restregar o fregar. Creo que no es lo mismo que pulir.
