230mm Roller

Terracotta Green 21 mm

This roller is a impressive roller for all outside jobs and even ceilings . 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 This Green 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 

The Terracotta Green replaces the old Red sleeve with blue line which is no longer produced by our supplier. The pinky type Multicolour sleeve is a 21 mm alternative.

If you did not try this roller yet you will miss a valuable experience.

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″

MultiColour Terracotta – 21 mm  This fabric is now being replaced by the terracotta green fabric below.

Terracotta Green 21 mm

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. 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.

Colour pattern:

  • Yellow ( to be replaced by the identical vestan white rollers over time)

Available Sizes:

  • 230 mm -11″
  • 270 mm -14″
  • 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.

Goldstripe 12mm Nap

Microstripe Rollers 9mm Nap

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.

Colour pattern:

  • White with a yellow and orange stripe
