American Roller Co. and its Plasma Coatings Division have announced a collection of nip roll coverings that give wear and release properties, for a range of operating temperatures and costs — geared toward the film and laminating markets.
According to American Roller officials, when selecting covering compounds, there can be tradeoffs. This new family of nip roll coverings has been designed to eliminate having to choose between wear, release or a high-temperature rating.
In field tests, “in some cases, we saw two to three times the life,” said Jim Carlson, senior engineer with the Union Grove, Wis.-based American Roller.
