    PET felt

    PET felt is an innovative acoustic material produced from recycled PET bottles. The material has excellent sound-absorbing properties and is often used to reduce noise pollution in various settings.

    The acoustic basic PET felt panels that we offer are ideal for creating a beautiful wall finish or making acoustic elements.

    What is acoustic PET felt?

    PET felt, also known as recycled polyester felt, is a material produced from recycled PET bottles. PET stands for polyethylene terephthalate, a common type of plastic used for making soft drink bottles, water bottles, and other packaging.

    The process of making PET felt starts with collecting and recycling used PET bottles. These bottles are then cleaned, shredded, and transformed into small fibres. These fibres are then combined and compressed into felt material.

    PET felt has various applications, including acoustic and thermal insulation. The compacted sheets are sturdy and porous at the same time, allowing them to absorb sound and reduce reverberation in a room.

    Sustainable and recyclable PET-felt

    The sound-absorbing polyester felt has a long lifespan and is highly durable. It retains its colour and quality well, even with normal indoor use, showing minimal signs of ageing. More than half of the material is made from recycled fibres, making it an environmentally friendly choice. Additionally, PET felt is fully recyclable.

    Difference between needle felt and PET felt

    Needle felt is made from natural fibres such as wool, cotton, or a combination of both. The production process of needle felt involves mechanically bonding fibres using needles, creating a coherent and compact structure. Needle felt is known for its softness, flexibility, and insulating properties, making it a popular choice for use in furniture and sound insulation.

    PET felt, also known as recycled polyester felt, is made from recycled PET bottles. The production process of PET felt involves melting recycled PET bottles into fibres, which are then formed into felt material. PET felt is known for its durability, water resistance, and acoustic and thermal insulation properties.

    In short, while traditional felt is mainly made from natural fibres such as wool and cotton, PET felt is produced from recycled PET bottles and has specific benefits such as durability and water resistance.
