Forming Fabrics

InTegra®-T Forming Fabric

InTegra-T AJ-130 fabric has demonstrated superior performance on many of the high speed Crescent and other Twin Wirer former machines. Industry leading dimensional stability has made this the fabric of choice for Crescent former machines utilizing trim beads or solid edge seals to trim the sheet. The 3-shed papermaking surface enhances bulk and tensile generation for optimal tissue production.

T-Star™ AJ-494 Forming Fabric

T-Star

T-Star AJ-494 is engineered to deliver the ultimate balance between drainage, stability, and low void volume to improve your paper machine operation and positively impact your bottom line performance. The plain weave top provides superior fiber support for maximizing machine retentions while at the same time the uniform surface resists contaminants. The AJ-494’s low caliper design, a result of its structured warp technology, in combination with its 4-shed bottom, makes it easy to clean, reducing the demands on showering and machine drives, making it ideal on challenging high speed applications.

T-Star™ AJ-194 Forming Fabric

T-Star

T-Star AJ-194 is engineered to deliver the ultimate balance between drainage, stability and life. The AJ-194 was designed utilizing structured warp technology and the latest in high wear materials, insuring performance in the most demanding of applications. The plain weave top provides superior fiber support for maximizing machine retentions and contaminant resistance, while the 6-shed bottom provides superior life in a design that’s versatile and easy to clean, making it ideal on recycled fiber or other challenging applications.

InTegra®-ExFT Forming Fabric

Integra-ExFT AJ-197 is a super fine, 200 mesh triple layer fabric in a low caliper design, combining a 3-shed top surface with a 4-shed bottom. This 3-shed papermaking surface enhances bulk while creating a robust sheet for optimum tissue production. The unique 3:2 weft ratio (paper side: machine side) and 4-shed machine side allows for high wear volumes while having an open machine side for easy cleaning.

PacStar-HD Forming Fabric

PacStar-HD utilizes the latest Structured Warp forming technology in conjunction with the most advanced Wear Resistant Yarn in the world- EcoLife. This means a very clean running, efficient, stable forming fabric structure that gives maximum life potential while providing optimum drainage capacity and low running void volume. Formation, Test, Cleanliness, and Sheet Solids are the result! Two forming surface variations, plain weave and 3-shed, offer options to make sure the forming process can meet the demands of high performance packaging machines. High headbox flows means a better formed sheet and the highest possible test results.

PacStar Forming Fabric

PacStar

PacStar is the latest technology in forming fabric application on high performance packaging machines. The new Structured Warp technology provides a clean running, stable structure that yields optimum drainage capacity and low running void volume. This means reaching the highest possible sheet solids with the best formed sheet. This design is available in a plain weave as well as a 3-shed forming surface. This allows papermakers to have another option to help control MD/CD fiber alignment. The 3:2 weft ratio controls early drainage and allows fiber mobility to be created with high headbox flows and table activity optimization.

KraftStar™ Forming Fabric

KraftStar

KraftStar is a high fiber support, high drainage capacity fabric with low caliper to provide the best results on high performance packaging machines. The forming surface is available in both plain weave and 3-shed variants. The 3-shed forming surface will aid in CD fiber alignment on hybrid formers and gap formers making brown grades. The KraftStar family is available with the world’s most advanced Wear Resistant Material- EcoLife. The benefits of high fiber support create the best possible sheet surface characteristics for machines requiring demanding print surface performance. You can now obtain the best possible sheet surface without having to sacrifice life potential.

CentraFlow® Forming Fabric

CentraFlow AJ-416 is a unique MD tied triple layer structure that provides high sheet support and controlled early drainage for improved overall dewatering, better couch solids and increased retention on printing and writing grades. The MD “Structured Yarn” technology reduces fabric caliper and void volume to produce a cleaner running forming section and reduced wet end breaks. The 6 shed wear side and 3:2 CD yarn ratio provides superior stability and wear potential for all machine configurations.

PrintStar™ xHD Forming Fabric

PrintStar

PrintStar xHD combines ultra-high sheet support and greater surface drainage open area for enhanced sheet quality on critical printing and writing grades. The unique MD “Structured Yarn” technology reduces fabric caliper and void volume to provide improved couch solids and a cleaner running forming section. The long float 12 shed wear side creates a robust structure with greater wear volume for the most demanding abrasive conditions without sacrificing papermaking performance. The perfect combination of quality and value that you can count on for high speed production and efficiency.

PrintStar™ Forming Fabric

PrintStar

PrintStar is a super thin SSB triple layer fabric that combines ultra-high sheet support and greater surface drainage open area for enhanced sheet quality on critical printing and writing grades. The unique MD “Structured Yarn” technology reduces fabric caliper and void volume to provide improved couch solids and a cleaner running forming section. Performance and value that you can count on for high speed production and efficiency.

InTegra® Forming Fabric

Integra sets the standard for fine mesh SSB triple layer designs balancing high sheet support and dewatering capacity for enhanced formation, retention and sheet quality for printing and writing grades. The robust 6 shed wear side and 3:2 CD yarn ratio provides superior stability and wear potential for all machine configurations.

PrintStar™ SP Forming Fabric

PrintStar

PrintStar SP provides superior sheet support and high dewatering capacity for enhanced formation, retention and sheet quality for publication grades. The unique MD “Structured Yarn” technology reduces fabric caliper and void volume to provide higher couch solids and a cleaner running forming section. The 2:1 CD yarn ratio and increased active binder frequency lock the structure together for greater shear stability and bending stiffness. Designed for today’s demanding high speed formers where quality and performance always matter.
