Single Layer Forming Fabrics

A single layer forming fabric is the least complex of the weave pattern categories and the 4, 5 shaft and 8 shaft configurations are still widely used in the paper making industry. And single layer forming fabrics are also applied in the manufacturing of multi-layer forming fabrics due to their good paper sheet forming properties.

2.5 Layer Forming Fabrics

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.

Triple Layer Forming Fabrics SSB

A triple layer forming fabric has two independent layer integrated together by a binder yarn in the middle. Polyester triple layer forming fabrics perform a good combination of a fine paper surface and relatively coarse wear surface which results in excellent paper sheet surface and stable high life potential.
