Felt Packing


Felt packing and seals are ideal for medical and industrial applications that require heavy-duty shock absorption and durability. They are commonly used as lubricant retainers near ball and roller bearings. Made from highly compressed natural wool and wool-blend fibers, felt packing and seals require minimal shaft pressure to function effectively.

Denver Rubber Company offers felt products in a variety of configurations including woven felt, rolled felt and felt sheeting to fit many application requirements. Our felt packing material are manufacture by placing high-quality natural wool fibers under pressure and using heat and moisture to create materials that meet specific tolerances for density, thickness, hardness and wool content.

When the matt reaches the proper size, most felt packing manufacturers neutralize the sulfuric acid they used in the last stages of felt production with warm water and soda ash. Lastly, an industrial device employs rollers to round out any imperfections in the completed felt fabric.
