felts

feltOur extensive inventory of felts meet a variety of needs in the coil processing, metalworking and other industries, in applications ranging from light-duty surface protection to such demanding uses as tensioning and high temperature resistance. AIFS representatives can help you select exactly the right product for your requirements, ensuring that you don’t spend more than necessary to achieve the performance you need.

We offer custom processing to your specifications for all of our felts and carpets. All stock products are available in bulk rolls, slit rolls and slit cut rolls. Cut parts are available in precision cut pieces, die cuts and sheeting.

Synthetic Needle Felts

Felts manufactured of synthetic materials such as polyester are bestsellers for a spectrum of industrial applications. These felts are named from the manufacturing process, in which thousands of needles compress the raw material into the finished product. Available in a wide range of weights and thicknesses, they are suitable for many of the same applications as more costly pressed wool felts. Wool/synthetic blended needle felts also are available for demanding applications.

We stock a large inventory of polyester felts, and can supply other synthetic and wool/synthetic blends on request.

Typical synthetic needle felt applications are tensioning, wiping and protecting the surfaces of ferrous and nonferrous metals during processing.

Pressed Wool Felts

Customers who need a premium felt product choose pressed wool felts, manufactured in compliance with American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) standards. These felts, produced by a combination of chemical moisture, heat and pressure, are noted for their strength and density.

Typical wool felts applications are vibration control, gasketing, clutching, insulation, sealing, high temperature resistance, surface protection, braking, noise control, wiping, wicking and polishing.
