Formexx introduces a new platform for forming fabric technology. Enhanced Drainage Channel (EDC) geometry is created by a higher concentration of machine-side yarns, fewer sheet-side machine direction yarns and more cross-machine direction yarns.

The result is a fabric with very high surface open area and superior fibre support. The Formexx weave also provides an extremely stable fabric, ideal for application on the most demanding machine positions.

Benefits include: enhanced formation; high drainage rates; higher sheet quality; reduced energy consumption; and a wider former operational window.
