Felt Applications by Function
Anti-Squeak- Felt's resilient nature make it a perfect choice for anti-squeak and other metal on metal applications.
Filter- Voids in the felt material trap and hold particulate matter extremely well, while withstanding long term exposure to water, oil and chemicals.
Insulating- Wool fibers and the felting process naturally hold in heat and absorb water.
Lubricating- Voids in the material act as reservoirs and pass liquids through in a predictable, consistent manner.
Noise Control- Felt reduces sound transmission and absorbs sound naturally, and has been used as both a functional and decorative sound barrier.
Packing- Felt of various densities can be used for packing, from "low tech" void filling to "high end" cushioning
Polishing- Felt holds fine particles well and maintains its integrity through wear.
Sealing- Felt is able to adjust to contours and retain its compressibility over extended periods of time.
Vibration- Felts fiber structure and resilient nature make it an ideal choice for vibration absorption.
Wicking- Felt delivers a consistent, predictable flow rate, and can act as both wick and reservoir, while retaining its durability.
