Shoe press belts

Valmet Black Belt FT shoe press belt is especially designed for tissue machines. This belt has been developed to perform with the highest speeds and loads on tissue machines. It survives for a long time in harsh conditions and keeps water removal at a high level.

Valmet Black Belt FT features:

  • a thin but durable structure
  • good dimensional stability – no wobbling during run
  • heat and wear resistance on the paper side, low friction on the shoe side
  • long running times with stable performance
  • excellent dewatering that leads to high dry content
  • non-marking grooves


The best dryness values for tissue paper have been achieved with high density grooves.


High density grooves with narrow lands and narrow grooves allow high void volume without risk of marking or thick belt.

Valmet Black Belt is a unique shoe press belt that is made of high performance elastomer material reinforced with dimensionally stable synthetic yarns to meet the requirements of a well performing tissue machine.
