We have vetted the best suppliers to provide only the highest quality rubber and urethane materials for our roller coverings and molded precision parts. We have found by using the highest quality elastomers our processing costs are lower while providing the very best roller covering with the physical properties demanded by your engineers.
Rubber compounds are unusual in the physical world because as you improve one characteristic of a compound, you often lose other beneficial qualities. There are no universally perfect elastomeric compounds that possess all the positive physical properties for every application. At Rol-Tec, we recommend the compound that will be the best material for your operation with the correct balance of properties for your roller or part. Heat, pressure, speed, environment, and the chemicals that will make contact with the compound are some of the important pieces of information needed for proper material selection. To recommend the best candidate material for your specific application, we will learn about your operational needs and balance these with the different elastomer qualities of the various compounds and blends.
The correct rubber or urethane formula is selected by comparing the physical properties the elastomer possesses to the desired task the roller is expected to perform. Using the finest quality materials that exhibit the true physical properties needed for your application means we will manufacture a roller or mold a part that will perform properly for a long period of time.
HNBR - High heat tolerance and excellent physical properties make HNBR the optimal and sometimes only compound choice in many industrial operations including paper making, embossing, steel manufacturing, and laminating.
Cast Urethane/Polyurethane - A wide range of durometer can be accomplished from 20 Shore A to 70 Shore D as well as different tensile strengths, oil resistance, or compression sets depending upon the urethane formulation.
