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.

  • White with wide yellow line  ( the 12 mm roller has yellow lines closer together)

Vestan Yellow Rollers 11mm Nap

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 which is a cheaper fabric so excellent 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.
