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 patented 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.

"These latest technological advancements in our rolls business mirror what we've been doing in our clothing business, as we push hard to offer the greatest range of innovation in the marketplace," said Stephen R. Light, President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. "We are working closely with our customers to enhance their operating efficiencies and quality, while significantly lowering their cost of operation and inventories."

The latest family of roll cover products from Xerium includes:

GEMINI: Gemini's increased fiber fraction and nanoparticle technology deliver exponential increased toughness and durability for the most demanding calendaring applications, while still maintaining superior surface finish. New Gemini nanoparticle covers feature the most advanced technology available for today's high performance calendars and supercalendars. With significantly more high strength fiber reinforcement per cover surface area, Gemini covers are extremely tough and have already demonstrated superior performance in the most demanding calendar applications.

Genesis: The Genesis cover design family with nanoparticle technology delivers toughness and durability in the most demanding supercalendar and soft calendar applications, while maintaining superior surface finish. Genesis has the industry's best fracture toughness, impact resistance and exceptional abrasion resistance Utilizing Stowe Woodward's exclusive Thermaguard base, Genesis provides the ultimate temperature consistency across the cover face. This consistency, combined with the improved toughness, gives calendar operators excellent runnability, efficiency, and improved paper quality.

Rebel: Rebel is an exclusive new generation of polyurethane covers for maximum tissue machine performance. Available in a wide hardness range and all venting combinations of suction, blind drilled and grooved, Rebel pressure roll covers provide superior nip conditions for tissue quality and machine efficiency. The excellent hardness stability of Rebel's unique polyurethane chemistry assures a uniform Yankee/Pressure Roll nip over the life of the cover that is not typically achievable with rubber covers.

Xtreme Series: Developed by Stowe Woodward's global research and product engineering team, Xtreme covers are high strength, extremely tough rubber materials that are cool running and maintain very stable nip conditions. Xtreme technology is tailored to specific cover application requirements to provide superior machine efficiency and sheet quality. Designed specifically for hardness stability, toughness, bond strength, and nip uniformity, Xtreme TS and Hyperpress X roll covers provide superior running conditions and long life in both conventional and TAD pressure roll applications.
