Wool felt is the material of choice for mechanical and industrial seals. It has wicking and oil absorption properties, high resilience and the composition to filter and retain fine particles. Felt also resists extreme temperatures, fluid, tearing and shock. Brand Felt of Canada Ltd. provides felt seals and gaskets using diverse methods of converting, including die cutting, kiss cutting, roll slitting, adhesive coating and CNC custom cutting. A leading felt manufacturer and producer in North America, we can deliver rapid prototyping and emergency service with quick turnaround times.

Line of Felt Seals
Wool felt is ideal for seals and gaskets because of its many inherent advantages over other materials, including: chemical resistance, filtration capabilities, oil wicking and absorption properties, resilience, high shaft speeds, low friction, polishing action and a high temperature limit.
F-1 grade SAE industrial felt can withstand temperatures of up to 275 degrees F. This is the standard grade for bearing seal felt and comes in varying thicknesses ranging from 1/16 of an inch to 1 inch.
Grades of F-3, F-50 and F-55 industrial felt are also commonly used as seals and gaskets.
