Felt sheets are textile structures composed of interlocked fibres. Wool is an outstanding example. Felt is not woven, that is to say, it does not arise by crossing weaves and wraps, just as fabrics do. In order to manufacture felts, several layers of fibres must be steam-pressure conglomerate. This takes advantage of its property to bind. Hence, that is why it is sometimes known as binder.
Its use is based on the mechanical work of dust disposal, oil sealing, grease and lubricants, polishing, air filtering and liquids.
They possess attributes that make them particularly suitable for industrial use. According to the characteristics of felt in density, composition, color and appearance, it can be used as:
- Thermal isolation
- Anti-vibration support
- Oiler ítems
- Gaskets and washers
Felts are presented in several formats such as plates of different thicknesses, widths and lengths, and also in strips, weather stripping and custom stampings. Numerous densities are available, in accordance with each need.
