Felt to Human Kind

     Felt applications engineers and designers specify felt for numerous and various reasons and applications including: vibration absorption, noise reduction, bearing strength, sealing, wicking or fluid transmission, lubrication, roller bearings, filters, heat barriers, bumpers, components, liners, retainers, shock absorbers, weather seals, dust shields, anti-squeaking, insulation, padding, plugs, packing, polishing (glass, stone, jewelry, fiberglass metals, plastics, etc.), furniture rubbing and staining, burnishing, pen nibs, lamp bases, legging, sleeves, and countless more!

Typical applications are: dry drum seals, impregnated pickings, dash liners, anti-squeak strips and pads, sound deadening and other acoustic uses. Spacing strips, sound deadening, fuel oil filters, anti-rattle applications, and grease and oil retention. Padding and packing are typical uses. Recommended for mechanical applications where an accurate, thin, smooth, high grade, felt is required. Typical uses are: ball and roller bearing oil retainer washers and small dust excluding washers.

Felts due to its lightweight but durable nature are extensively being used in various forms and shapes in the manufacture of modern automobiles for heat insulation; sound proofing; between plastic and metal parts and for aesthetic purposes.

Felt components of various natures are continuously being adapted by the modern industry for its various needs of wicking, fluid transfer, soundproofing, spacing, heat absorption, fluid reservoir conveyor belt for bakery industry. Self-adhesive felts in various thicknesses are being used to enhance the working life of the product.

Due to its capability of high compactness; liquid absorption and higher product life, molded felt wheels of various densities have technical edge over traditional die-cut polishing wheels finding applications in the leather; jewelry, glass, dental, crystal, metal and other industries. Its triangle bobs are popular with the home polishing segment.

Wool as a fiber has far better air permeability ratio vis-à-vis other synthetic fibers and hence finds uses in air filters for automobile, cement, ceramics and other industry. Diesel and other viscous hydrocarbon fluids are also best filtered through wool felt media due to its corresponding properties of heat resistance and filtration. Felt media of proper specification can enhance the life cycle of the filter.

Felts due to its properties of elasticity ; absorption of the liquids and their release later on serves as an excellent reservoir for the thickest viscous liquids and has found large application as sealants in railways, kilns, electric motors for non-stop continuous working life. Its low frictional capabilities have made it popular in a large number of mechanical applications.

Wool felt is a favored material for advanced technological application in the field for space, defense, rocket and security press.

Felts blocks finds their application in writing instruments, ink-pads, erasers, lining, underlay, door-mats, automobile carpets, die-cut part for lamp bases, furniture legs , base pad for ironing; dentistry, toys, educational kit, vegetation growth among ever growing applications.

Felts are continuously being accepted as bases in the furniture, tables, lamp and various other industries. Its attractive colors and ready to use rolls work out very cost effective to the user industry.
