PacStar™ Forming Fabric

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.

Product Benefits:

  • Controlled Drainage – improved formation and test generation
  • Low Running Void Volume- Clean running and vacuum element efficiency. Sheet Solids!
  • Low Caliper means more effective fabric deflection on drainage elements for better control of table activity
  • Outstanding Life Potential for solid long term performance
