About Felt & Textiles

Industrial felt is a non-woven textile material made from natural or synthetic fibres. The fibres are mechanically interlocked using heat, moisture, and pressure to form a matted fabric with a fuzzy surface. Industrial felt is known for its softness, flexibility, and high durability.

The fibres used in industrial felt can include wool, polyester, nylon, and other materials. The choice of fibre depends on the specific application requirements, such as temperature, chemical exposure, and abrasion resistance.

Industrial felt has a wide range of industrial applications, such as gaskets, seals, dust shields, vibration dampers, insulation, and padding. Its properties can be further modified by adding coatings, laminates, or other materials to enhance specific properties, such as heat resistance or water repellence.

  • Industrial felt is a non-woven fabric made of natural or synthetic fibres that are mechanically bonded or interlocked. The chemical benefits of felt depend on the type of fibres used to make it. Some common benefits of industrial felt include:
  • Chemical resistance: Felt can resist a variety of chemicals, making it useful for applications that involve exposure to harsh chemicals.
  • Thermal resistance: Felt can withstand high temperatures and is an effective insulator, making it suitable for use in applications where heat resistance is required.
  • Abrasion resistance: Felt is durable and can withstand wear and tear, making it useful for applications that involve friction and abrasion.
  • Sound and vibration absorption: Felt has excellent sound and vibration absorption properties, making it useful for acoustic and vibration control applications.
  • Moisture resistance: Felt can repel moisture and resist mildew, making it suitable for use in damp environments.

Industrial felt is used in a wide range of applications, including:

  • Sealing and cushioning: Industrial felt is commonly used in sealing and cushioning applications, such as gaskets, seals, and padding.
  • Insulation: Industrial felt is an excellent thermal insulator, making it ideal for use in applications such as heat shields, insulation pads, and oven mitts.
  • Filtration: The dense, fibrous nature of industrial felt makes it an effective filter material, used in applications such as dust collection, oil and gas filtration, and air purification.
  • Polishing and buffing: Industrial felt is also used in polishing and buffing applications, such as in the automotive and aerospace industries, for finishing metal and composite surfaces.
  • Wiping and cleaning: Industrial felt is a popular choice for wiping and cleaning applications due to its absorbent properties and durability.
  • Craft and hobby: Industrial felt is also used in a variety of craft and hobby applications, such as in the production of clothing, toys, and decorative items.
