Goldstripe original 12 mm Nap

These high quality, original Goldstripe roller is made from stapled fibres. This fabric has a slightly better productivity due to the lager number of “fibre ends”  inside the nap. The material is poly-amide which is the same as the continuous version with one yellow line.   Stapled fabrics always need to be used for undercoat first until all loose fibres are removed. They are a logical result of the way the fabric is constructed and produced.

The fabric is well know for low splatter, good coverage and easy to wash. It is a long lasting fabric designed for 500m2 but most painters get far more use out of them.

Poly amide is best for water-based paint because it’s affinity to water. The special polyester backing of this fabric makes it also suitable for oil-based paints. For more detailed information on the fabric properties and performance see our Goldstripe 12mm Fabric Information sheet.

Nylon White Rollers- 12 mm Nap

This sleeve is a top quality sleeve for epoxy flooring: This sleeve is especially used where lint is an issue. Like all rollers, work in well and your work should be virtually free of lint.

There are 2 categories of fabrics: Knitted and woven fabrics. This Nylon White is the high quality woven fabric.

Al sleeves are thermo-bonded (=melted) onto polypropylene. Excellent for harsh epoxies.

Please note that some epoxies are so aggressive that any roller will desolve in the end.   We are not aware of a better roller than the Nylon white. We also supply this fabric as a baby roller to the marine industry since it can be reused several times with very aggressive epoxy’s.

Colour pattern:

  • White, no lines

MultiColour – 21 mm Nap

Terracotta Rollers – 21 mm Nap

This roller is an improved version of the Multicolour roller. We receive comments like” very versatile roller” and “we used it on everything”. The fabric is very durable. The fabric keeps its volume when loaded up and does not flatten.

This type is now the most popular long nap fabric (although some painter still prefer the old version). The Terracotta fabric is made from poly-amide 66 which is specially treated to give the fibres a spring-type feature so it holds it shape better. After production of the fabric the twisted fibres are opened up to increase the active surface of the fibres. It holds therefore up to 30% more paint than similar fabrics.

Poly-amid 66 or PA6/6 is an aliphatic semi-crystalline homopolyamide ( Alifatic  is from the greek word for fat, oil). It is know for high strength, stiffness, chemical resistance for hydrocarbons, heat resistant and wear resistance and high water absorption. Poor resistance resistance though to acids and bases. For more detailed information see the Terracotta 21mm  Fabric Information 

This roller will be replaced by the Terracotta Green. The difference is only the colour pattern: the fabric itself is completely the same.

If you did not try this roller yet you will miss a valuable experience.

Colour pattern:

  • Red with blue line  ( The green with blue line version is identical)

Available Sizes:

  • 230 mm -9″
  • 270 mm -11″
  • 360 mm -14″
