Roll covers made with Teflon® have been used by the paper industry for 35 years, but Fluoro-Wear is the first roll cover product of reinforced Teflon®.
When the product was introduced 10 years ago the original wear testing indicated four times greater abrasion resistance than unreinforced FEP made from Teflon®. Recent thickness measurements taken on a roll cover in service indicate a Fluoro-Wear roll cover is lasting more than 10 times as long as the unreinforced roll cover.
The reinforced Teflon® has greater strength at higher temperatures. Fluoron's suggested service limit is 400°F (204ºC). However, one bowed roll cover operating at the end of an infrared oven may see temperature excursions to 500° - 550°F (260ºC - 287ºC) for short periods and has not damaged the roll cover.
