Xerium Introduces Adhesion Felt Technology For Fibre Cement Machines

YOUNGSVILLE, NC, Nov. 21, 2014 (Globe Newswire) — Xerium Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:XRM), a leading global provider of industrial consumable products and services, recently launched Adhesion felt technology for all its fibre cement felts portfolio. Adhesion is a specially engineered treatment designed to reduce or eliminate the start-up cycle for new felts on fibre cement machines. By applying special materials and processing, Adhesion technology enables any Xerium fibre cement felt design to ramp-up to full machine speed almost immediately. In addition, the innovative design also prevents premature densification of the felt, which is common to conventional fibre cement felts. As a result, Xerium fibre cement felts with the Adhesion technology allows machines to run to full speed quicker, and for longer periods, up to the end of the felt’s life.
