As a manufacturer, BWF Protec offers technical needle felts for industrial applications of all kinds
When the division was founded in 1993, BWF Protec was actually still called the Industrial Felt Division, which still aptly describes one of our core businesses. We continue to be a manufacturer of so-called industrial felt for a wide variety of industries - from car wash manufacturers to the household appliance industry to the laundry industry - to name just a small selection.
Today we summarize this area under the heading of:
Industrial Specials & Components

Our specialists will always be happy to help you.
Industrial felt for manufacturers of soles and shoes
Classically, you certainly know slippers made of wool felt. This is not the division of BWF Protec - here you would be better off with our colleagues from BWF Feltec.
Our technical needle felts like to work behind the scenes in the shoe industry. For example, industrial felt is used in the manufacture of high-quality soles for hiking, trekking and mountain boots. Here, needle felts support the optimal cohesion of the sole-shoe construction.
In addition, needle felts from BWF Protec also warm your feet, e.g. as insoles or pull-in socks for rubber boots. Here, of course, qualities with wool content are preferred, as wool is known to have a temperature balancing effect
Coil felt & more
Braking, cleaning, oiling - also in the steel service center, for example, industrial felt is used as so-called coil felt (brake felt in the brake frame) when processing coils.
Other applications for industrial felt by the meter or cut to size in the steel industry include:
- surface protection during storage and transport
- continuous cleaning of cylinder rollers
- removal of excess oil
- oiling of sheets before cutting and punching
- stop felt
Whether galvanized, coated, stainless steel, soft sheet - depending on the type of steel sheet and the surface condition of the sheet, very different requirements are placed here on the degree of hardness and condition of the coil felt. Here we offer a wide range of needle felt qualities under the name BWF CoilTec. Depending on the requirements, we supply the industrial felt to our customers as meter goods, sheet goods, felt mats and cut parts.
