Tom Israel of Albany International has studied the effects of forming-wire weave-pattern on the properties of air-laid nonwovens.
Four wires, (two warp- and two weft- faced, each at two different permeabilities) were tested by making 50, 100 and 200 gsm webs from Weyerhaeuser NB416 pulp at 300 inches/min on one DanWeb former. The conclusions: • Web thickness is affected by the wire pattern (and by the basis weight). • Warp-faced wires increased the MD/CD orientation slightly, weft-faced wires had the opposite effect. • The wire pattern is visible on the underside of the webs. • Latex bonding masked the effects. Mr Israel explained that the data would probably not be applicable to a large machine working at higher speeds. He proposed checking the effects of thermal bonding next.
