Teflon FEP Roll Covers
Available from Tef Cap Industries Inc.
Tef-Cap’s Heat Shrinkable Teflon FEP Roll Covers are specifically engineered to extend roller life and to eliminate roller build-up and picking. Teflon FEP Roll Covers are used in a wide spectrum of industries, including textile, packing, printing, paper, photographic and food.
Various industries take advantage of Teflon FEP’s unique properties that include almost universal chemical resistance, zero moisture absorption, and the best anti-stick/release surface possible. Most materials will not adhere to FEP but even those that might “cling” to the surface can be wiped off with a damp cloth. Nothing will release adhesives and glues as well as FEP and no other surface prevents picking and build–up like FEP.
Tef-Cap produces a seamless Heat Shrinkable FEP Roll Covers with a .020-inch wall thickness for rollers ½ to 12 inches in diameter and lengths up to 10 feet. Our unique process produces a cover with no surface imperfections and with significantly greater flex life, which is especially important on rubber rollers.
For roll cover applications where high temperature and/or pressure are encountered, it is suggested that the cover be etched and bonded to the roller. Etched roll covers and special adhesive systems are available. Shrinkable covers made from Heat Shrinkable Teflon PFA are available for applications up to 500°F on special quotation as well as Roll Covers with a heavier wall.
