SOLTA®FELT | Wool felt by RÖDERS.

Wool felt for industry.

SOLTA®FELT

Wool felt is one thing in particular: versatile.

As a product, wool felt has been produced from wool for centuries using moisture, pressure and warmth. Today our SOLTA®FELT wool felts are being used widely for their diverse properties in a wide range of commodities and consumer goods.

RÖDERS produces high-quality fulled felts to which, depending on the application, either sheep’s wool or even foreign fibers can be added. We consolidate our wool felts and fulled felts entirely mechanically, without the use of binding agents or similar.

Treatment of SOLTA®FELT (equipment).

Wool felt, classification Bfl-s1

Flame-retardant treated wool felts from RÖDERS has been tested and classified under DIN EN 13501-1 by the materials testing department for North Rhine-Westphalia. The wool felts concerned contain wool proportions of 52% and above, in thicknesses from 1.0 mm to 20.0 mm and in densities of 0.15 g/cm³ to 0.36 g/cm³. They meet the requirements of fire class Bfl-s1 (flame-retardant building materials).

Water-repellent

Where there is a risk of felts coming into contact with high levels of moisture, it is recommended that they are additionally impregnated to make them water-repellent.

Moth protection

If necessary, the goods can be treated against moth damage.

More equipment options

A large number of different finishes are used by us to give the products a “grip”. Wool felts can be made hard as a board in this way.

Now let’s get technical.

SOLTA®FELT rolled goods are normally available in widths up to 2000 mm. These widths, like the lengths, depend on the thickness, the grammage and the quality of the material. Thicknesses are available of between 1 mm and 30 mm. Wool felts are classified in grades of hardness.
