These high quality, original Goldstripe rollers are 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 designed, 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.
These mini rollers are excellent for small jobs. The fabric is high quality 12 mm micro fibre. Made to last, very nice finish and easy to use. Only use ( any) microfiber fabric with water based paints.
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.
This roller is used for texture, render and block work and is an excellent alternative for the sheepskin Long Nap. Some painters use this roller for internal walls too. An excellent 21 mm very durableand strong fabric with an amazing finish and a wide range of applications. This roller is still available although it is replaced by our Terracotta and Terracotta Green , both 21 mm nap. For texture coatings the Multicolour still seems to be the preferred choice.
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 pinky Multicolour) 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 homo-poly amide ( 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 old red fabric with a blue line is no longer produced by our supplier. Available until sold out.
If you did not try this roller yet you will miss a valuable experience.

The high quality Microstripe 3 Green 18 mm with Teflon ™ surface protector is one of the newer fabrics available. It is the first synthetic roller that behaves a little like lambs wool. The secret of this roller is very fine poly-amide specially spun and twisted and coated with Teflon ™ surface protector . In other words: a very nice finish, good coverage, easy to wash out and exceptional absorption and release of paint. The coated rollers with Teflon ™ surface protector are strong performers in the market. Only available from ROLON and its retail customers.
This is a unique ceiling roller. The rollers has durable, minimal splatter, absorbs well, good coverage and is easy to wash. The fibres stapled poly-amid. Stapled fibres are spun from short pieces like a woolen thread. This means the ends of the separate fibres are spread out between the bottom and the top of the nap.
The stapled fibres need extra attention before use: wash out well and next use the for undercoat to remove all lint from the manufacturing process. Not recommended for walls if the roller is not well worked in.
This roller can also be used outside but we normally recommend the terracotta for outside work.
