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″

Goldstripe Rollers – 18 mm Nap

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.

This roller can also be used outside but we normally recommend the terracotta for outside work.

The higher quality nylon white rollers are also used for epoxy and can be re-used. This is especially useful for the 100 mm baby rollers, used in the marine industry.

Microstripe Rollers 9mm Nap

Mic

This roller is an excellent high quality micro-fibre roller for the walls. The roller is only to be used for water based paint. It leave a better finish then the Goldstripe but you need more time for cleaning. Specially popular with painters who service the high end of the market.

The roller is also available in 12 mm ( Microfiber blue and it’s earlier version Microstripe blue). The 9 mm microfiber fabric has its own identifying colours since the nap size is different than the 12 mm microfibre.

The roller is also excellent for sealing Gyprock walls and large contractors sometimes use the roller for glossing ( acrylic gloss!)  doors. Do not load up to heavy is you use it for acrylic gloss. Of course coating needs to be tipped off with a fine brush.

This is a roller with many qualities and value for money.

Royal Rollers 7mm Nap

These Royal rollers are designed for varnish, but work well for semi gloss and are excellent rollers for fine epoxy jobs. They hold more paint than the velour rollers and are a good alternative for painters who prefer a longer nap for gloss.
