Felt & Carpets. Whatever the Steel Application, Applefelt has the Felt or Carpet to Help Get the Job Done. When we entered the metals industry in 1982, Applefelt was one of the original suppliers that pioneered developing different blends, denures, and densities of tensioning felt. Today, Applefelt continues its goal to keep every customer satisfied with our felts. Rest assured the Applefelt understands the high demands for quality in the steel industry and our extensive line of felt products are here to help our customers achieve top performance when slitting steel. Applefelt can supply a varied array of thickness and density in both synthetic and wool felts up to 2 inches thick with a 270 ounce per square yard density. We offer felts that are made with polyester, polypropylene, nylon and Kevlar. Our SAE wools are press or polyester/wool blends. Applefelt's carpets are commercial grade and are offered with felt backing to work with our Apple-Stix tension board system, or the economical Action Back made with a jute or polypropylene backing. Our felts can be made to wick and absorb surface oils on both hot and cold rolled steels, and in other steel processing applications. Also, these felts can be used in shipping and receiving areas, by laying felt strips to separate coils to prevent denting and scratching.
