Sheet felt is generally harder and available in smaller sizes than the S.A.E. pressed felt that is sold in rolled form. To achieve this hardness, the sheet felt is processed to be narrower and shorter in length. Sheet felts are made of 100% wool and harden in an isotropic fashion, ensuring equal density throughout each sheet. Buffalo Felt can cut, drill, or bevel the sheet felt to your requirements.
Buffalo Felt offers four standard types of sheet felt:
1001 (S1 Quality) - white, made out of clean carbonized wool
1004 (S2 Quality) - white, made out of a clean mixed blend of carbonized & scoured wool
1005 (S3 Quality) - white, made out of a scoured wool blend with impurities
2001 (S4 Quality) - grey, made out of a scoured wool blend with impurities
Standard sheet sizes are 48 inches x 24 inches, ranging from 1/8 inches to 2 inches in thickness. Buffalo Felt can make some of the widest, longest, and thickest sheets in the industry. Please contact us for any specific sizes or densities that you may require.
Hardness & Densities
Sheet felt is commonly categorized into four densities. These densities refer to the weight per square yard of each sheet at a 1 inch thickness. The four standard densities are:
Soft - 20 lb/sq. yd.
Medium - 26 lb/sq. yd.
Hard - 32 lb/sq. yd.
Rock Hard - 40 lb/sq. yd.
