The needleloom range of underlays are manufactured from recycled textile fibres and woven polypropylene tape. The fibrous content of the underlay is normally a blend of animal and vegetable fibres with a small proportion of man-made material. All needleloom felts are subjected to a series of tests including 'Flammability' and 'Resistance to Compression'. The test results relate directly to BS5808: 1991 ~ Underlays For Textile Floorcoverings.
