2.5-layer forming fabrics

Side View-Weaving Struture

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.

Single layer forming fabrics

Side View-Weaving Structure

A single layer forming fabric has the simplest weave pattern. It is composed by one CD yarn and one MD yarn system. Single layer forming fabrics can be woven into various patterns for different performance and applications.

SSB triple layer forming fabrics

triple-layer-forming-fabric-sideThe structure of SSB triple layer forming fabric permits to design the forming side and the wear side of the fabric independently to achieve better performance. The bottom side is made with large diameter yarns to improve stability and wear resistance. The sheet side has fine yarns to optimize the sheet forming characteristics of the fabric. The fine mesh on top supply a better sheet support, improving formation, increasing fiber retention and reducing two sideness.
