The 4 shaft single layer forming fabrics are multipurpose and provide good stretch, drainage, sheet, support and abrasion resistance properties. They are mainly used to produce printing & writing papers, packaging papers.
The 5 shaft single layer forming fabrics provide better stretch and drainage properties than 4-shaft forming fabrics. The retention can be improved by increasing weft yarns. This kind of forming fabrics are primarily used on tissue machines.
