Engineering Felt / Industrial Felt

Collection: Engineering Felt / Industrial Felt

Engineering felt is primarily used in industrial situations where specific tolerance, thickness and quality are required. The properties of engineering felt can be controlled to produce different felt with characteristics ranging from soft, supple padding to a hard dense felt for polishing glass and metal.

Engineering felt ranges in thickness from 1.6mm to 25.4mm and is natural (off white) in colour. According to the thickness and grade, engineering felt can be cut into coils of any width and length. All grades of engineering felt can be supplied as washers or wads cut to your requirements. Engineering felts are also available with self-adhesive backing and can be supplied to just about any size and/or shape.

Quick Facts:

Chlorofluorocarbon and bromofluorocarbon compounds are NOT used in the manufacture of any of our felts.

We stock felt tested to both British Standard and DIN standard (ISO: 9001:2000 DIN Reference: DIN 61200)

We cut to any size you require

We use presses, guillotines, slitting machines and a Flashcutter machine (read more about our new cutting technology)

We stock 3 varieties of Engineering Felt:
