Synthetic Polyester Felt
Polyester felt is a synthetic needle punched felt made from polyester fibers. The polyester fibers are needle punched with a special felting needle, one with small barbs on the end. These barbs pull the polyester into itself, locking together to create a fabric.
Polyester felt is offered in a wide variety of densities and thicknesses to meet your needs. It offers a low cost alternative to wool, and can be used in many industrial and commercial applications. Monarch Textiles manufactures needle punched polyester felt products to meet your specifications.
