FLUORON ROLL COVERS
Custom Heat Shrinkable Fluoropolymer Roller Covers And Jackets
Protect your Rollers and Your Production
Fluoron’s line of custom fabricated heat-shrinkable Fluoropolymer roller covers and jackets provide a non-stick surface designed to eliminate process buildup such as glues, gums, starch, and scale while preventing corrosion and extending roller service life. Constant rubber roller repair and resurfacing is no longer a viable option when you see the cost benefit of custom non-stick covers that solve your build-up problems, protect your rollers longer, and significantly reduces downtime. Money saved is money earned.
A Custom Solution for Each Application: Each heat-shrinkable cover is custom fabricated out of virgin grade fluoropolymer resin to the exact specifications of each process roller to reduce cost and ensure proper fit and bonding. During the manufacturing process, Fluoron technicians expand each heat-shrinkable roller cover using a unique temperature and pressure expansion process. The cover can then be installed at our facility or shipped to the customer site and easily shrunk down on the process roller with a torch or heat gun.
A Lasting Bond: For applications with friction or compression, Fluoron will etch the interior of the fluoropolymer tube to allow for strong mechanical bonding of a supplied adhesive that helps further lock the sleeve in place and prevent slipping on the roller.
Hassle Free Installations: Fluoron’s heat-shrinkable covers and jackets are easy to install with minimum equipment required. Fluoron-certified technicians can install the covers at our manufacturing facility in Elkton, Maryland or we can travel to your location to provide the installation service. We also offer a Fluoron training certification program for repeat customers who desire to perform installations themselves in the future. Training can be performed at our facility or yours.
Fluoron-Clear™ is Fluoron’s heat-shrinkable cover made from non-stick the fluoropolymer, fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) to resolve process issues related to sticking, buildup, and corrosion. Fluoron-Clear™ covers are popular due to their low cost, easy installation, and outstanding non-stick properties. Fluoro-Clear™ heat shrinkable sleeves meet FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 standards and is safe for food contact and medical applications.
Fluoro-Flex™ series heat shrinkable non-stick covers are engineered from virgin Perfluoroalkoxy alkanes (PFA) fluoropolymer resin. PFA has higher temperature stability and improved flexural modulus compared to FEP material and is Fluoron’s recommended choice for rubber nip rollers and other high temperature or high compression applications.
Fluoron-Stat™ series anti-static non-stick roll covers are also designed from PTFE but engineered with graphite additives to enhance the material’s conductive properties. This allows end-users to have a completely conductive roll cover that will not cause static discharge while providing a long-lasting, high wear, non-stick surface.
