Advanced Rolls Product Technology will reduce operational costs

Xerium Technologies Inc, a leading global manufacturer of industrial textiles and rolls used primarily in the paper production process, announced full commercial availability of a technologically advanced new series of roll cover products designed for improved machine performance, better wear and longer, more efficient product life.

The latest range of roll cover products are designed to reduce operational costs and maximize the output of existing equipment, while enhancing product customization capabilities for each individual customer. Roll covers, which are used to coat the large machine cylinders that transport raw paper along the lengthy belts while the paper is formed, pressed, and dried, are critical to the quality of paper as it is produced.

"We continue to work very closely with our customers to advance the technology of paper manufacturing by enabling greater efficiency, leaner inventories, and lower costs," said Stephen R. Light, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. "The high-ROI class of products that we're developing is in direct response to manufacturers' demands for higher quality at lower costs."

Developed by Stowe Woodward's global research and product engineering team, the latest family of roll cover products from Xerium include:

Hypercoat and Multicoat HCX - Coater Backing Roll Technology
Hypercoat and Multicoat HCX covers are high strength, extremely tough rubber materials ideal for the most demanding coating applications. Their superior mark resistance and smooth uniform surface finish enable a high quality, uniform coating application. With increased wear resistance and higher material strength, Hypercoat and Multicoat HCX covers improve reliability and extend operating life.

Multicoat HCX improves machine reliability and coater backing roll cover performance. Its improved mark resistance and outstanding tolerance to impacts and wraps help maintain high coater efficiency and coating quality. In addition to minimizing scoring and edge wear, its outstanding abrasion resistance enables Multicoat HCX to maintain profile longer than standard covers and to deliver extended run times.

Hypercoat delivers superior overall performance, combining outstanding mark, dent and scoring resistance with superior wear resistance. Hypercoat has already set multiple operating records and has reset the bar defining maximum performance. Hypercoat's superior properties allow deckling, and minor coating build-up can be sanded off by hand with minimal effect on profile. When maximum run time is required, Hypercoat delivers.

Aquarius Armor
Aquarius Armor roll covers deliver long, constant, superior performance in the super-soft cylinder couch, extractor couch, and lumpbreaker applications.

With Aquarius Armor, machine superintendents will now have a consistent nip pressure and performance throughout the life of the cover. The durable polyurethane shell of Aquarius Armor does not experience the wear seen by other soft polyurethane or rubber materials. Chemical attack is greatly minimized to prevent significant changes in hardness and nip pressure. CD uniformity is greatly improved due to the excellent abrasion resistance.
