Sheet Felt & Needle Punched Felt

Sheet Felt

Sheet felt is a dense, pressed wool product that is manufactured in 36" X 36" sheets. Sutherland makes this product anywhere from 1/8" to 2-1/2" thick. This is a very dense felt; thus it cannot made in roll form. Densities range from 22 - 40 lb./Sq. Yd (@1" thick). 26 lb. & 32 lb. sheet felt is standard and in stock. Sutherland Felt Co. is a leading manufacturer of sheet felt squeegees for the automotive, sign, and print industry.

Special Orders normally require a 3-4 week lead time and a manufacturing minimum. Items designated as in-stock are normally inventoried, but may occasionally be in the process of being produced, thus requiring a 3-4 week lead time.

Needle Punched Felt

Needle Punched FeltNeedle punched felt refers to felt that is made by vertically needling fibers together to achieve a desired thickness and density. Needled felt is commonly made from wool, synthetic and other re-processed fibers. When viewing a cross-section of needled punched felt, the fibers lay vertically, as opposed to pressed felt, where the fibers lay horizontally.

Needle punched wool felt normally contains a lower percentage of wool as compared to SAE wool felts, and is therefore less expensive. F-15N and F-26N are the two standard type of needle punched wool felt. Sutherland Felt Co can also make needle punched equivalents to SAE grade F-3 and F-7 pressed wool felts. These normally have a lower wool content than their SAE grade counterparts, but are made to comparable densities. These materials are often used for packaging, crating, and lining applications, where a lower grade felt is acceptable. Sutherland Felt Co. can custom manufacturer various densities, thickness and blends to your specifications.
