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 (knitted ) fabric is excellent for epoxy floor coatings: “This is the best roller I have found so far for epoxy… they are great”
The fibre is polyester. Normally not the preferred choice for epoxy flooring but it is economical. It seem to work very well for single use epoxy flooring. All sleeves are thermo-bonded which means that the fabric is melted onto the polypropylene tube.
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.
Yellow ( to be replaced by the identical vestan white rollers over time)
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 to wash out the roller. 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 if 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.
The 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.
The rollers are made from high quality lint free fabric and are excellent for delicate epoxy jobs. For standard epoxy jobs however we suggest a longer nap like the economical Vestan Yellow or Vestal White or the lint free Nylon white.
