All WETEC member companies as a consolidated technical body share a common interest of introducing wet-felted products and providing guidelines and consultancy on regulatory developments in this field. Moreover, WETEC as the joint association has the greatest advantage to present the common views and approaches of wet-felted product manufacturers with reference to their technical, quality and safety standards and regulations to the Commission and relevant institutions and organizations.

WETEC was founded on 2nd March 2007 in Frankurt, Germany.
The current WETEC headquarter is in Munich, Germany.

WETEC, is a strong promotor of environmental aspects, and is therefore a member of the German Institute of Construction and Environment (IBU - Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V.)

WETEC member companies are recognized as leading manufacturers of wet-felted products, i.e. wet-felted mineral boards are used as membranes of suspended ceilings as well as door inlays, wall claddings, partition fillers and wall and ceiling elements.

Mineral boards (wet-felt) essentially consist of mineral wool, clay, perlite and starch as fillers and binders. Those are mixed with the use of water (auxiliary) to produce a slurry, which is form to a board and dried. The products are produced by using the traditional wet-felt process.
