Benefits of Wool Felt 

In addition to gasketing, wool felt gaskets are also commonly used as wipers and around filter applications. Wool felt is supplied in various SAE standards ranging from F-1 through F-26. These various factors dictate the wool content, density and other physical properties of the felt.

Felt also comes in a wool blend. This material consists of wool and synthetic fibers. The material is generally a lower grade than pure wool felt and is generally used in packaging applications.

Lastly felt is provided in pure synthetic options. Generally, this material is made from polyester or other synthetic fibers that are pressed together or bonded together using heat. Like wool felt, this material comes in various densities. In addition, manufacturers can add certain coatings to increase flame resistance or add certain properties specific for applications.

Synthetic Felt

Since synthetic felt is made from various man-made materials, manufacturers can substitute different materials at different proportions to achieve certain weight, air flow, etc specific to a desired end product.

Synthetic felt is generally used in the same applications as wool felt, but synthetic felt can withstand higher operating temperatures. Synthetic felt options are typically less expensive than wool.
