About five percent of all carpets are produced in a needlefelt procedure. Layers of non-woven fleece made of staple fibers are needle-punched and compressed on a tuck presser. The carpet is given additional stability with a backing material or using special chemical or thermal bonding. Good-value, tough needlefelt is particularly durable. It can withstand extreme temperatures, is extremely scuff-resistant and is even resistant to contact with chemicals.
