Commonly known as 2.5-layer forming fabric, extra support double layer forming fabrics are to further improve the characteristics of double-layer design. It’s a standard double layer forming fabric with an additional weft yarn on the sheet side of the fabric. There is an improvement in sheet formation, smoothness, reduction of wire mark and better cleaning of the showers. Extra support double layer forming fabrics are commonly used in newsprint and fine papers production or in applications that use very short fibers.
High fiber support and drainage.
Double MD yarn lock on machine side which withstands high MD loads and resists CD ridging.
Increased weft yarn diameter on machine side and long CD crimp provides better life time.
Easy to release the sheets.
