PAPER / CARDBOARD INDUSTRY

 

Rubber coated rollers in this industry have to serve three basic functions:

 

  1. transfer, guide and align the material being transferred;
  2. help in the disposal of any excess material, such as water, adhesive, etc.;
  3. coat various chemical solutions, as well as print.

 

Paper industry imposes high standards where rubber rollers are in use, especially in those parts of the machines where high pressures are exerted in combination with high temperatures. A wide range of elastomeric compounds is used in this industry, capable of dealing with a series of adverse production conditions.

TEXTILE AND NON-WOVEN INDUSTRY

 

Rollers with elastomeric coverings always played a key role in textile production and treatment industry; for this reason, they should comply with high standards.

 

The resistance capacity of these coatings in a variety of chemical solutions and concentrates, along with their ability to operate within a wide temperature and mechanical stress range -often found in modern textile production- are complicated, crucial issues.

WOOD INDUSTRY

 

Wood industry uses rubber-coated rollers that must be manufactured with great precision.

 

Particularly the quality of rubber coating compounds must comply with all necessary specifications. For example,

  1. in adhesive rollers, uniformity in the geometrical features of rollers, in combination with specific groovings on the rubber surface must ensure even coating of adhesive with great dosing precision for the manufacturing of plywood boards;
  2. in applicator and lacquering rollers, homogeneity of the mass of rubber compounds is crucial for the final quality.
