Heat Shrinkable FEP Roll Covers 1.25:1
Heat Shrink Teflon FEP Roll Covers are specifically engineered to extend roller life and to eliminate roller build-up and picking. Shrinkable FEP Roll Covers are manufactured using a seamless FEP Tube and are used in a wide spectrum of industries, including textile, packing, printing, paper, photographic and food processing.
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.
