We have been producing technical needle felts by the yard for a wide variety of applications since 1960.
What is needle felt?
Needle felts - also known as nonwovens - usually consist of synthetic fibres which are processed into a stable flat structure by a mechanical needling process. Our synthetic needle felts feature various advantages and properties depending on the fibre used.
Depending on the fibre used, our synthetic needle felts are e.g:
|Area weight||50 - 10,000 g/m²|
|Thickness range||0.5 - 30 mm|
|Density range||0.08 - 0.40 g/cm³|
|Width||up to 340 cm
(depending on area weight/thickness)
|Roll length||up to 1,000 running metre
(depending on grammage)
- without supporting scrim
Depending on their requirements and area of application, at BWF Protec customers can select from technical needle felts made of any common synthetic fibre types, from polyester and aramid fibres to steel fibres. We also work with natural fibres such as wool and rayon.
Nor do we shy away from experimenting with new fibres for our technical needle felts. In this context, we work closely with our central R&D competence centre. Our specialists accompany you from the initial inquiry through to product development and the finished needle felt class.
