Coir Needle Felt
Coir Needle Felts are Non-Woven Fabrics
Made out of 100% Coir Fibre.
A Large Action Plan for the Development of Wood
Substitute has Resulted in Creation of More Awareness.
Coir Needle Felt
The Fiber is Mechanically Bounded (interlocked)
to Form a Continuous Length of Sheet.
Vaigai Coir Cluster Pvt Ltd
The cluster is proposed to be developed under SFURTI. The Coir Board is the Nodal agency (NA) and ITCOT Consultancy and Services Limited is the Technical Agency (TA) appointed by Coir Board. The above agencies work in tandem towards the successful implementation of the project.

- These are coir pads made by interlocking 100% coir fibre by plain weave through needling.
- It is available in roll form without bonding or available in sheet form with bonding of fibre.
- Generally, bonding of fibre is done by spraying rubber latex up to 15% DRC and cured.
- Thickness is set as per customized requirement on latex sprayed sheets.
- it is also called as non-woven coir fabric. Measuring Unit: Grams per square meter we make needle felt sheet from 750 gsm to 2500 gsm in varied thickness from 5mm to 30mm.
- Needle felt without spraying latex, in roll from.Up to 20 to 30m length and width up to 2m is possible.
