ML6 Roller Recovery

Polyurethane Roller Recovery, Repair, and Replacement

Meridian Laboratory not only supplies new rollers but also repairs, recoats, and recovers existing rollers that no longer perform or meet specifications as needed.  This service is available for all rollers, not just those manufactured by Meridian Laboratory.  Choosing polyurethane ML6 to replace your rubber, silicone, nitrile, or foam rollers will result in increased friction, high durability, and extremely tight tolerances.

Upon receipt of rollers, shafts, and other parts for refurbishment, Meridian Laboratory will analyze the parts as follows:

  1. Measure existing coating for dimensions or obtain desired measurement and sizes.
  2. Measure durometer of existing coatings or obtain desired durometer.
  3. Confirm with customer desired dimensions, colors, and durometers.
  4. Measure cores, shafts, and other parts for tolerances.
  5. Repair or replace any cores that are out of tolerance.
  6. Bond new Meridian Laboratory polyurethane ML6 to specifications.
  7. Measure and ensure recovered tolerances match desired specifications.

If desired, Meridian Laboratory’s team will also make recommendation on changes to rollers, shafts, and other parts that need recovering.  Whether the desired outcome is cost reduction, increased longevity, or higher friction the Meridian Laboratory’s team can assist you in achieving your goals.  Custom sizes and profiles are available very affordably, with turnaround times in as little as 5 days.
