1.5 layer forming fabrics are woven in 5-shed with extra yarns design with similar structure of double layer forming fabrics, used mainly in the production of brown paper grades (board papers, liner & corrugated papers).
1.5 layer forming fabric is actually a 5-shed single layer fabric that has modified to have extra yarns which provide it the same properties as that of a double layer one. The extra yarns provide better sheet side smoothness as well as improved retention.
Thanks to its unique structure, it delivers very good drainage and ease of cleaning.
1.5 Layer forming fabric is mainly used on the packing paper machine with machine speed 50m-400m/min, which have high air permeability as single layer forming fabric, and have a longer life than single layer forming fabric.
1.5-layer 5-shed with Extra Yarns
● Excellent drainage capacity and ease of maintenance
● Easier to clean, better sheet release and faster drainage than double layer fabrics.
● Better drainage and fiber support than single-layer fabrics.
● Longer lifetime and better dimensional stability.
