We were recently asked about die cutting a SAE F-13 felt at ¾” thickness. The customer wanted a part made for their Battery application. We had no prior experience with this material before, but we were confident we could cut the material to produce the OD of the part but not so sure about the small dimensional slots. Die cutting the part would be a challenge because of the combination of the material thickness, the material density and the narrow dimensions of the slots.
