- Shock absorbing, abrasion resistant
- Wool blends and 100% Synthetics
- High absorption capacity
- Wide choice of fibers, surface treatments, coatings, and colors
- Custom Fabrication is our specialty!
Our line of pressed wool offers outstanding performance. Wool’s unique fiber morphology allows the fibers to naturally interlock without the need for needle punching or chemical binders. This fabrication process imparts a soothing feel to the fabric which translates into patient comfort and protection. The matrix created by this fabrication process has gentle resiliency, high impact shock absorption capacity, and a large void volume for high fluid uptake.
Our line of 100% synthetic needle punch offers a broad choice of physical and chemical properties made possible by our facility’s ability to process a wide variety of polymer fibers, and our expertise at applying sophisticated treatments and coatings.
Choice of Fibers
