TUFF TEMP ROLLER COVERS
TUFF TEMP manufactures two distinct product lines of seamless tubular textile products, which are ideal for use as high temperature roller covers.
Since the mid-1970's TUFF TEMP has manufactured and supplied a unique seamless woven Kevlar Tubing, and we have now recently developed a unique heavyweight knitted tubular product called TUFFNIT.
Both our woven tubing, and our TUFFNIT tubing, are manufactured in a wide variety of Inside Diameter (I.D.) sizes to fit your particular rollers. For any size not readily available from our extensive inventory list, our staff of highly skilled Textile Engineers can custom develop a high performance tubing to fit your particular roller specifications.
As with our lines of high temperature resistant conveyor belting, tapes, and fabricated wear pads, TUFF TEMP seamless tubing exhibits superior temperature resistance, outstanding durability, and is completely non-marking on your product. All TUFF TEMP tubing has been engineered and designed to deliver the absolute longest material wear life, enabling your plant to achieve the longest continuous production runs, with far less costly maintenance down time.
Within the glass industry, TUFF TEMP tubing has long been used as protective roller covers within the hot end of automotive glass bending and tempering ranges. TUFF TEMP tubing is used as a protective roller covering on press bending rollers, blasthead rollers, and cooling rollers.
TUFF TEMP seamless tubing is currently being used by many of the world's largest flat glass manufacturers. In addition, TUFF TEMP tubing is also supplied OEM to many of the leading manufacturers of horizontal bending and tempering range equipment.
Our TUFF TEMP seamless woven tubing and TUFFNIT tubing are the ideal protective covering for your rollers because:
TUFF TEMP tubing has proven temperature resistance up to 1350º F 732º C, making it ideal to handle the higher temperatures experienced in the press bending section of the range
Using large mechanically enhanced Kevlar yarns, TUFF TEMP tubing has superior cut resistance, so it better resists tearing from glass breakage – a common failure point amongst competing roller cover materials
TUFF TEMP seamless tubing adheres well to your rollers with virtually no slack or creases, providing superior optics on the hot glass
