"Rollers with multifunctional surfaces"
Issue June 2018
Interview with Armando Giovannelli,
Head of Sales, Lüraflex GmbH
There are a great many elastomers with a wide range of properties that can be used for coating «rubberised rollers». Some are resistant to ozone, acid or oil, while others can be electrically conductive o rinsulative. On the other hand, rollers may have a smooth or permanently rough surface, surfaces for creating matt finishes, cutresistant, abrasion resistant ... to go through all the variations could take hours...But no one roller manages to combine different, possibly mutually opposing properties on a single surface. Our idea is to manufacture a roller with a range of properties by combining rubbers of different qualities.
