In one of our latest posts, we presented some of our coverings for industrial rollers like nitrile products we make at Textape. More specifically, we focused on rubber + PVC pieces, roller covering made of synthetic E.P.D.M. expanded, and roll covering made of cork. 

You read the article and could not find the right product for your textile machines? Then you have two options: option number one, if you need natural rubber roll coverings, you can check this post. Option number two, if you are interested in synthetic rubbers, but are looking for other kinds with respect to the ones we presented, read below. Here, we’ll introduce roll coverings for stenters, rolling machines, inspection machines, and more!

Why did we create separate posts for our products for industrial rollers? 

At Textape, we create many kinds of roll covering tape, each of which has a specific purpose. Our goal was to give equal dignity to all of them (that is, reserve the same amount of space on the website). And, since in a roll covering even the tiniest characteristic makes the difference, writing an in-depth view of every product is crucial. The catalog is very concise, and we prefer to keep it like this to make it easy to consult. Blog posts, on the other hand, seemed the perfect choice because they consent to provide more information and partially avoid the length constraints of the web.

One last note before reading. In this post, you’ll find pieces that, at first sight, may look alike. There are even some that can be applied to the same machinery. Thus, we suggest scanning each piece of information carefully. Would you like a self-adhesive version of the products listed below? Then opt for one of the following widths: 50mm, 70mm, or 100mm.

Ground synthetic rubber code 118

We start with a product intended for the finishing of heavy-duty fabrics. Or, to be even more specific, we begin with a roll covering that is only suitable for entering machines. This ground synthetic rubber, which features a cotton + polyester backing, is one of the thickest pieces we make (thickness is 2.5 mm). Plus, it can withstand 100 °C. Some more strength points? The product also has good adherence and is totally oil resistant.

Roll coverings for stenters and rolling machines 

Grindered synthetic rubber code 120, Grindered synthetic elastic rubber code 120 ES, Synthetic rubber impressed cloth code 146

Now we come to the hard part. This section, in fact, features three products that may look the same, so we suggest reading it twice or three times to grasp the details. For starters, all three pieces are intended for stenters and rolling machines, feature a polyester + cotton backing, and guarantee excellent performance at high temperatures (the maximum supported temperature is 120° C). Moreover, in these roll coverings, the thickness is the same. However, there are still some differences between one piece and another. 

For instance, the grindered synthetic elastic rubber has no resistance to oils, while code 120 and 146 products have it. Also, the roll covering code 120 ES does not have a high adhesion capacity. The grindered synthetic rubber, on the other hand, can adhere perfectly to your industrial rollers. And the synthetic rubber impressed cloth sticks to your machinery perfectly too. Finally, code 120 and code 146 roll coverings are suitable for all kinds of fabrics.

Pinned synthetic rubber code 136

It’s time to check something different. In this paragraph, in fact, you’ll find a piece specifically designed for the finishing of wet fabrics. Compared to other roll coverings, the product is not very thick (thickness is 1.8 mm). Yet, it can withstand up to 120 °C, is oil resistant, and has good adhesion power. 

However, we believe the distinguishing feature of this roll covering is the texture. As you can guess from its name, this roll covering presents a marked pin texture that creates particular friction. Oh, we almost forgot: the backing of this item is of polyester and cotton.

Roll coverings for anti-static electricity removal

Smooth antistatic synthetic rubber code 176 and medium-fine antistatic synthetic rubber code 178

Some textile processes can create static electricity. This electricity, of course, must be removed, and the only way to do it is applying the proper materials to your industrial rollers. At Textape, we offer two different solutions: 

The roll coverings mentioned above have some features in common. To begin with, both the pieces are 1.8 mm thick, present a polyester + cotton backing, and can resist oils and heat. Specifically, these items can withstand up to 120 °C. In addition, code 176 and code 178 products have good adhesion power (they rank in the mid-range). So, what are the differences between one item and the other? Actually, we can only think of one: the medium-fine antistatic synthetic rubber features a texture, while the other doesn’t. 

When to use these products? We suggest adopting them for the finishing of all kinds of fabrics.

Synthetic rubber rough surface code 140

Without a doubt, it’s the thickest roll covering you can find at Textape (thickness is 4.2 mm!). As you can guess from this information, the product is intended for finishing heavy-duty fabrics. More specifically, we designed it for carpets. Other characteristics that make this item perfect for carpet manufacturing? It withstands up to 120 °C and is oil resistant. In addition, this product also has good adhesion power and is long-lasting, so if you apply it to your textile rollers, they will stay protected for a long time. There are two more things you need to know. First, this roller cover has a marked texture. Second, its support is made of polyester and cotton. 

Spongy synthetic rubber code 142

The name tells it all: this roll covering has a spongy consistency. For this reason, you can apply the product only to pressing rolls of weaving looms and fabric rolling machines. Its features? It’s 2.7 mm thick and presents a polyester + cotton backing.

In addition, this item can withstand heat (120° C max) and adheres well to your industrial rollers.

Synthetic rubber fabric code 182

Up until now, we presented roll coverings with polyester + cotton supports. This item, instead, does not feature any backing, but it can stick perfectly to all kinds of textile rollers. How is it possible? It’s all due to the fact that it has the same consistency as velcro

You may be wondering about its intended use. Textape suggests adopting it for stenters and raising machines. Other characteristics you should learn about: this item is 2.5 mm thick, resists heat (max temperature supported is 120°C), and oils. Finally, it’s suitable for all kinds of fabrics.

Green felt – 100% wool code 188

In the previous post, we presented a roll covering for inspection machines. Here at Textape, we have another product you can use on that machinery: the green felt – 100% wool item. Two features distinguish this product from the others. First, it’s capable of withstanding 150 °C. Second, the roll covering is 2.5 mm thick. The support? It’s made of polyester and cotton.
