Most of the catch cans will use a fine stainless steel strand type of media. But there are some cautions you have to adhere to, because you don't want a piece of this type getting to a cylinder. Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, it is best to just get a catch can that already the R&D has been done and works as it should.
I am partial to the Conceptual Polymer HE can I use, but there are other great catch cans out there. The RevXtreme RX Catch can is a top performer. The Saikou Michi can is a top line one. Both of these cans are more expensive than the CP can but don't offer much, if any, better filtration (though they will claim they do because they have a vested interest in you buying their can). The Moroso catch can, is not bad, but it is not the best. It seems to go down hill from there.
When one is contemplating all of this, it pays to get informed. This is a great read and will give you all you want to know about catch can designs and what is best.

Similiar situation with my NNBS headlight mod.. yup a company already makes color changing halos and they cost a fortune.. Probably have tons of experience putting them in.. Instead I went and spent half the money they want for just the kit to do it to your own headlights and bought all the components including headlights and began my project.
So after my "cheap" No R&D ebay can gets installed, I will revisit this thread and give some feedback whether it failed or had any success. Im not afraid to fail, because if you are then you'll never try.
P.S. Great read on the link you posted, definitely gave me additional ideas to make sure mine works.

You can do what you prefer with no grief from me. I am one who like to take advantage of what others have already learned from testing. I have no need or desire to try and reinvent the wheel, so to speak. Each of us has our own path we like to travel. I do hope the best that your project turns out great. At least, for me, it will be fun to see how it plays out.

To some degree, I suppose. But it seems more like just trying to take care of something the engineers overlooked. A little pro-active maintenance so I can reduce the reactive maintenance a little.

I just ordered a Watts F501-02AH Coalescing Filter for my truck. I got a heck of a deal on it. I figure if it is good enough to remove oil from air on very high end pneumatic equipment it is good enough for my truck. I hope to get it installed in the next week or 2. I did read the link that was posted above. If my plastic bowl gives me issues I will just order the glass version from cp for $3. my total cost will still come in at less than 1/3 of their cans
