Felt has a wide scope of application in almost all existing industries. Some examples of felt application are divided according to the following points:

Squeak Prevention

Its elastic structure makes felt an ideal material for the prevention of squeaking and whistling due to the friction of materials.

Elasticity is an inherent quality of wool fibres, enabling wool felt to be used as an excellent gasket material.



Wool fibres and felt process naturally keep the heat and absorb liquids. 


Noise control

Felt reduces sound transfer, absorbs noise, and is also used as a functional and decorative sound barrier. 



The porous quality of felt is exceptionally suited to absorb and prevent undesirable particles, like dust or carbon, etc. Felt is also capable of long-term resistance against the influence of water, oil, and other chemicals. Qualities like elasticity and durability enable wool felt to be used as “pressing mat – padding” in steel operation centres during scission and cutting. During this activity, felt also helps to clean and remove impurities from the steel roller.
