DURATrax Family

More than five thousand roll covers in operation worldwide utilize polyurethane technology. Fertilla utilizes specially formulated coatings to enhance your roll performance. We utilize DuraTrax technology – a family of innovative polyurethane products with endless benefits. No matter what your roll covering needs are, there’s a DuraTrax application to meet them.

 

Benefits of Polyurethane Roll Covers:
  • HYDROPHOBIC – Does NOT absorb ANY moisture
  • Corrosion Resistance
  • High Abrasion Resistance
  • High Coefficient of Friction
  • Reduced slippage and wear on the wire
  • Lower Power Consumption
  • Reduction of “stickies” build-up with SlickMax™ with Teflon® to help eliminate “stickies”
  • Faster Turn around Time

 

Unique Chemistry of Fertilla Polyurethanes

Our polyurethane covers are made from a unique blend of polymers and are custom designed to meet a variety of uses, conditions,  temperatures and applications. Our unique chemistry includes:

  • Polyol Backbone
  • Prepolymers
  • Fillers
  • Thermal stabilizers and hardness stabilizers
  • Combining Polyethers and Polyesters

WireMaxTM

WireMax™ is a denser, more thermally stable wire and felt roll cover used in all traditional wire roll and press/wet felt roll applications. WireMax™ is custom engineered for the wet end of a paper machine, and provides optimal traction, durability, doctorability and hydrophobicity. More traction means less horsepower needed to drive your wires and felts.

SlickMaxTM

SlickMax™ is a high temperature release roll cover custom engineered to prevent the buildup of “stickies” on a roll cover. SlickMax™ utilizes Teflon® content throughout the cover matrix to ensure the optimal surface to prevent “stickies,” sheet picking and abrasion.  SlickMax™ also allows the operator to regrind the cover when necessary to achieve a specific surface finish.

FeltMaxTM

FeltMax™ is designed for extreme conditions, whether it’s severe abrasion, doctoring or temperature. FeltMax™ is a revolutionary technology that can handle higher temperatures around the size press and still be soft enough at application temperature to reduce slippage with the wire or felt. FeltMax™ offers unsurpassed abrasion resistance, hydrophobicity, thermal stability and doctorability.

ReelMax
ReelMax provides intense protection and optimal traction.

ReelMaxTM

ReelMax™ reel spool covers provide the durability required, without compromising the protection necessary to prevent the reel drum from damage. ReelMax™ covers are exceptionally difficult to cut and cuts that do occur will not propagate like they do with rubber covers, rather, they will close up and self “heal”.  Most importantly, ReelMax™ is a composite cover which means that it’s optimally filled polyurethane matrix imparts unparalleled traction properties for tighter turn-ups and less wasted paper.
