The 21st century has seen J W Stead become one of Europe’s leading suppliers of roller covering tape. Our range covers all textile and general industrial applications. Together with our supply partners and our converting knowledge, we slit and stock a vast range of roller covering tapes to suit all requirements.
Our roller coverings offer controlled grip, durability and resistance to high temperatures, abrasion, oil and chemical damage. Most coverings are available with a high-heat resistant self-adhesive backing ensuring a guaranteed quality adhesion to the roller. We also supply non-adhesive roller coverings tape with a range of very high quality specialist contact adhesives.
The rolls are available in various lengths, such as 30, 50, 60, 75 and 100 metre rolls, and various widths from 25mm through to 150mm. The most common widths are 50, 75 and 100mm. We can slit our roller coverings to specific widths or lengths depending on customer requirements.
Our Roller coverings are made in a wide range of materials depending on application.
Typical characteristics include:
- PVC: Good abrasion resistance, good mechanical grip, chemical resistant, easy to clean
- Synthetic rubber: High abrasion resistance, good mechanical grip, oil resistant, good for untreated materials
- Natural Rubber: High abrasion resistance, good mechanical grip due to elastic properties, good for untreated materials
- Silicone: High temperature resistance up to 220°C, resistant to acids, inks, sticky liquids and pastes
- Plush: Good grip on fragile fabrics
