Non Stick FEP Roll Covers
Adtech FEP Roll Covers eliminate sticky build-up problems with rollers used in hot or cold applications.
Our FEP heat shrinkable roll covers can be applied to metal or rubber rollers using a simple hot air gun. Therefore, the machine down time can be just minutes compared with days when sending rollers away for a sprayed non-stick coating.
The thickness of our FEP roll covers is normally 0.5mm, compared with 0.005mm of a sprayed on PTFE roller coating, and the cost is comparable or even less. Adtech FEP non-stick roller coatings are available for self application from 6mm diameter up to 250mm diameter.
Alternatively, our experienced staff will fit our heat shrinkable FEP roll covers to rollers of any size in our works or at your premises. The inside surface can be supplied etched if the sleeve needs to be bonded to the roller (e.g. under nip conditions).
If the FEP roll covers are to be bonded to the roller, the inside surface needs an etching treatment to make it bondable. The chemical etching process is normally carried out to order on FEP roll covers that are held in stock.
Standard sizes are normally available from stock, and we are also able to custom manufacture virtually any size for special applications in single quantities.
For sizes below 25mm, see our FEP heat shrink sleeving range.
PFA Roll Covers
For more arduous and extremely high temperature applications e.g. laminating paper to polyethylene and extrusions, Adtech recommend the use of PFA roll covers, as their flex life is 10 times that of our FEP roll covers and the PFA roll covers have a working temperature of 250°C.
Our PFA roll covers are made to order.
