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.
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.
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.
These high quality Gloss Velour Rollers with 4mm nap are the modern high quality alternative to the mohair roller. Work the roller in and you have a lint free roller that gives you an excellent finish. No need to brush off. This roller is a pressure release roller like the mohair type gloss rollers . The backing from our velour roller is cotton. Velour is a woolen fibre and mohair is made from goat hair.
Some painters will still brush the finished surface off with a very soft Purdy Syntox brush, depending on the requirements of the finish. You also could use a 7 mm Royal roller if you want a longer nap.
