YOUNGSVILLE, N.C., Dec. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xerium Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:XRM), a leading global provider of industrial consumable products and services, recently launched ProSeam CL felt technology. ProSeam CL is specifically engineered to provide increased seam durability and felt life on demanding cylinder board machines. In addition, due to its unique base fabric structure, ProSeam CL is also designed to reduce installation time by speeding the on-machine seaming process required for new felts.
