FEP Roll Covers for the Printing Industry
At Adtech, we specialise in producing FEP heat shrinkable roll covers for the printing industry, to eliminate problems with sticky build-up on the rollers.
Our roll covers are used by a wide variety of different printers, including a pioneering recycling company who are able to recycle disposable coffee cups.
The fluoroplastic qualities of FEP mean that the roll covers are naturally non-stick, resistant to chemicals and corrosion, and the longevity of our FEP roll covers is also excellent, being suitable for long-term use in both hot and cold environments with minimal long-term deterioration.
In contrast to a sprayed-on PTFE roller coating of 0.005mm in thickness, FEP roll covers are typically a much more sturdy and durable 0.5mm – so they work much more efficiently for the same price. For extremely high temperature applications, such as for laminating paper to polyethylene and extrusions, we also produce PFA roll covers, which have a flex life of ten times the FEP roll covers and can withstand temperatures of up to 250°C (as opposed to 200°C with FEP). Whatever your needs, we make PFA and FEP roll covers to order.
