Xerium Introduces Advanced Tissue Forming Fabric Technology with Formsoft

Feb. 9, 2012 - Xerium Technologies today introduced Formsoft, an advanced tissue forming fabric technology specifically designed to help its tissue fabric customers improve operational performance at lower costs.

"While tissue has been one of the primary growth drivers throughout the industry, it has long been one of the more demanding grades of paper to produce," said Stephen R. Light, Chairman, CEO and President of Xerium Technologies.

"We worked closely with our tissue customers to design a new tissue fabric that helps them improve their most demanding processes to produce a higher-quality product at lower costs."

Formsoft is a patented, triple layer tissue forming fabric that has been engineered to provide high drainage performance that produces tissue with improved sheet properties, including formation, tensile strength, and softness. Formsoft delivers the highest fiber support with superior dimensional stability and uniformity throughout the life of the fabric, while also providing improved life potential that is well-suited for the rigors of a demanding tissue machine.
