Black Roll from Rollmac1 January 2002
Black Roll is a new rollercoating cylinder from Italian finishing equipment specialists, Rollmac. The black coloured reinforced steel roller has a very hard surface, which provides double the working life of a conventional rollercoater cylinder. Using Black Roll, the tanner is able to reduce the levels of friction, allowing the rollercoater to cover the surface of the hide and skin more evenly. The mechanical action of Rollmac's rollercoaters with the new roller allows a better spreading action of the hide or skin, which gives a cleaner and flatter finish. Black Roll is particularly suitable for coating resin finishes or corrected finishes where surface marks and scratches need to be covered. The new cylinder can be fitted to any size rollercoating machine and can be used for all leather types.
