Roller Coverings

Rubberfast have supplied roller coverings for many years.

This usually involves vulcanising a rubber compound to a free issue roller. Capacity varies from small rollers/wheels used in packaging to large bakery and carpet rollers.

 

Compounds

Many different compounds and hardnesses are available

  • EPDM
  • Neoprene
  • Nitrile
  • Silicone
  • Butyl
  • Hypalon
  • Polyurethane

(These have different properties and are used to best suit the requirements of a specific application.

i.e. resistance to temperature, chemicals, abrasion, oil, ozone etc.

 

Applications

Drive Rollers - Used in all industries for driving conveyor belts.

Conveyor Rollers - Gravity and driven rollers.

Print Rollers - Usually Nitrile rubber is used for these rollers which are in wide use on packaging and paper industries.

Abrasion Resistance - Hard wearing compounds like textractor, hypalon and carboxyllated Nitrile for heavy wear applications. E.g brick and tile industry, quarrying and mineral processing.

Food Rollers - Most of the compounds are available in food quality rubber often to FDA and BGA standards.

 

Finishes

Rollers are usually ground to the finished diameter but in addition we can offer:

Crowned, Helical, Spiral - To help with tracking.

Chevron, Diamond, Helical - To help with drive.
