Teflon FEP Roll Covers

Teflon FEP Roll Covers are specifically engineered to extend roller life and to eliminate roller build-up and picking. Seamless Heat Shrinkable FEP Roll Covers are used in a wide spectrum of industries, including textile, packing, printing, paper, photographic and food processing.

Teflon FEP Roll Covers Various industries take advantage of Teflon FEP’s unique properties that include almost universal chemical resistance, zero moisture absorption, and the best anti-stick/release surface possible. Most materials will not adhere to FEP but even those that might “cling” to the surface can be wiped off with a damp cloth. Nothing will release adhesives and glues as well as FEP and no other surface prevents picking and build–up like FEP. Small Diameter FEP Roll Covers are great for preventing starch build-up on spray nozzles. FEP Roll Covers are manufactured from FDA approved resins which make them ideal for all food contact and processing.

Heat Shrinkable Teflon FEP Roll Covers are produced as a seamless tube with a .020-inch wall thickness for rollers ½ to 12 inches in diameter and lengths up to 10 feet. This unique process produces a cover with no surface imperfections and with significantly greater flex life, which is especially important on rubber rollers.

Converting Line with FEP Coated Rollers

 

For roll cover applications where high temperature and/or pressure are encountered, it is suggested that the cover be etched and bonded to the roller. Etching FEP Roll Covers allows you to bond to almost any roller subsurface except for rollers that are manufactured from 100 % silicone. Rollers produced from all silicone require a special primer to prep the surface for bonding.

For applications that see operating temperatures ranging over 400°F shrinkable Roll Covers made from PFA resins that help increase the maximum temperature range up to a continuous operating temperature of 500°F. Please allow us to to quote any projects that you may have for PFA Roll Covers or for sleeves with heavier walls such as .040 or .060 thick.

Standard sizes and lengths of Roll Covers are in stock and available for next day or even same day shipping.
