Modern textile industry processes demand that roller coverings meet critical specifications for factors such as chemical resistance and the precision of applied compounds. This is particularly the case in specialty applications such as textile finishing and lamination. Moreover, durability is a major aspect of increased cost-effectiveness with regard to coverings.

Rollers can be used to protect, feed, squeeze, insulate or convey. All its compounds must meet the specific parameters.

The properties of the roll coverings must be stable and not degrade with use.

The textile industry utilizes rollers coverings in a variety of applications designed to squeeze water and or chemicals out of substrates that are being manufactured.

These applications include bleaching, dyeing , mercerizing and slashing. Roll coverings used in these applications must withstand the chemistry being used to bleach and/or dye the fabric being processed. Roll coverings must also exhibit excellent dynamic properties since rollers operate under high pressure and speeds. Lastly, roll coverings must be able to withstand elevated temperatures in the aqueous media and must not degrade from long term exposure.
