Goldstripe original 12 mm Nap

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.

Colour pattern:

  • White with two yellow lines

Available Sizes:

  • 230 mm -9″
  • 270 mm -11″
  • 360 mm -14″
  • 460 mm -18″

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

Available sizes:

  • 100 mm baby roller -4″
  • 270 mm-11″
  • 460 mm-18″

Goldstripe Rollers 12 mm Nap

These high quality, unrivalled rollers have strong support in the market. An exclusive German produced fabric, made from a continuous poly-amide fibre to reduce lint. Specially twisted during weaving and partly opened up to increase the paint holding capacity. Poly amide is best for water-based paint because it’s affinity to water. Polyester has an affinity to oil based solvents and the special polyester backing of this fabric makes it also suitable for oil-based paints.

Some experienced painters who look after the rollers use the worn-down rollers for glossing doors.

For more detailed information on the fabric properties and performance see our Goldstripe 12mm Fabric Information sheet.

The previous version of this fabric was made from a discontinuous (called stapled) fibre.  This version is now available again and has 2 yellow stripes.  We realise that some painters prefer the original fabric which seem to have a slightly better productivity due to the lager number of “fibre ends”  inside the nap. The materials in both fabrics are identical.  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.

Colour pattern:

  • White with one yellow line

Available Sizes:

  • 100 mm -4″  baby roller
