no seams or splices that may mark-off or weaken the felt.

||100% POLYESTER -
||The industry standard. This felt is made
from a special Polyester. This particular Polyester has excellent
abrasion and tensile characteristics, as well as, hydrolysis resistance.
We selected it only after testing literally every other polyester fiber
available. (Note: All Polyester fibers are not equal in tensile strength,
abrasion, or hydrolysis resistance. Typically the cheaper the fiber the
poorer its qualities).
||ULTRA 4000® -
|| A relatively new and special blend of 100% Synthetic
Fibers. Made by blending our special hydrolysis resistant Polyester fiber
(see above) with chemical and heat resistant fibers. The life span of this
felt will vary depending on the process it is exposed to but, in cases,
has more than doubled the life span of our special Polyester felt. This
added durability commands a premium cost of only 13% over the Polyester.
As a result, it has become our most popular felt since its introduction
five years ago.
The ultimate in felt performance without spending a fortune. This felt
was specifically engineered to perform in a ll high temperature and chemical
environments. From Textile Finishing to Transfer Printing applications,
this felt will outlast any other. Among its many qualities: 1) outstanding
strength retension upon exposure to high temperature (245°C); 2) excellent
resistance to acids and alkalis; 3) does not hydrolyze; and, 4) has good
physical properties (hysteresis, elongation, elastic recovery, tensile
strength, etc.) We highly recommend this felt for longevity, especially
in harsh environments, and to impart a soft hand to fabric.

||100% Wool and Polyester/Wool Blends
||Styles 5454 & 3454 - These felts help to
impart a superior "hand" to any fabric run over them. Style 5454
consists of 100% Wool, while Style 3454 is a blend of our special hydrolysis
resistant Polyester described above and Wool. The blending ratios vary,
but typically are 25/75, 50/50, and 75/25. The Wool and Polyester fibers
are generally mixed together before needling but, upon request, may also
be segregated such that the Wool fiber is concentrated on the face of the
