Roller Coverings

Roller Coverings

Rubberfast have supplied roller coverings for many years.

This usually involves vulcanising a rubber compound to a free issue roller. Capacity varies from small rollers/wheels used in packaging to large bakery and carpet rollers.



Many different compounds and hardnesses are available

  • EPDM
  • Neoprene
  • Nitrile
  • Silicone
  • Butyl
  • Hypalon
  • Polyurethane

(These have different properties and are used to best suit the requirements of a specific application.

i.e. resistance to temperature, chemicals, abrasion, oil, ozone etc.



Drive Rollers - Used in all industries for driving conveyor belts.

Conveyor Rollers - Gravity and driven rollers.

Print Rollers - Usually Nitrile rubber is used for these rollers which are in wide use on packaging and paper industries.

Abrasion Resistance - Hard wearing compounds like textractor, hypalon and carboxyllated Nitrile for heavy wear applications. E.g brick and tile industry, quarrying and mineral processing.

Food Rollers - Most of the compounds are available in food quality rubber often to FDA and BGA standards.



Rollers are usually ground to the finished diameter but in addition we can offer:

Crowned, Helical, Spiral - To help with tracking.

Chevron, Diamond, Helical - To help with drive.

Precision Ground - To extra fine tolerances.

Lagging - Various different lagging tapes that can be added to existing rollers with a high-heat resistant self adhesive backing which guarentees a quality bond to the roller. Can also offer with non-adhesive lagging which can be bonded with a premium contact adhesive
