Tissue TAD Fabrics

Softness - Bulk - Efficiency

Given the major challenges facing today’s tissue maker, grades produced by TAD technology are often preferred over conventionally produced tissue products. And considering the additional TAD benefits of up to 50% more absorbency and nearly 20% in fiber savings for equivalent sheet sizes and appearance, Xerium’s AirMaxx TAD fabric is the ideal solution to deliver those best-in-class benefits for the most demanding applications.

Compared to conventional tissue making, TAD technology operates without any press section. The formed sheet is transferred to the TAD fabric that transports the paper onto a rotating drum where hot air blows through it. AirMaxx provides best-in-class properties to accomplish the high demand for this application. Two designs offer three different impressions for forming air pockets for better bulk and absorbency. Improved material properties ensure fabric stability under toughest conditions. The special seam design stands for high seam strength and no marking.
