Xerium Introduces Two New Roll Cover Technologies

Xerium - ProGloss Xerium's new EnerSoft TS roll cover technology for tissue and toweling machines provides enhanced machine performance with reduced energy consumption.

July 22, 2016 - Xerium Technologies recently launched 2 new roll cover product families; EnerSoft TS — a new generation polyurethane roll cover technology specifically engineered for demanding tissue pressure rolls positions, and ProGloss — a new advanced technology composite roll cover for calender applications.

EnerSoft TS combines advanced polyurethane materials technology, innovative venting patterns, and proprietary roll manufacturing techniques to deliver maximum machine performance and reduced energy consumption, with consistent performance over the life of the cover. EnerSoft TS is available in several hardnesses for virtually any pressure roll application.

ProGloss composite roll covers utilize the latest innovative composite technology to deliver the industry's leading combination of wear resistance, impact resistance, and durability while generating best-in-class gloss levels for all calender applications. ProGloss covers incorporate newly developed epoxy matrix and filler materials enabling improvements in gloss sustainability, cover life, and barring resistance while maintaining extreme resistance to damage.

“We are very pleased to introduce these two new roll technologies. EnerSoft TS - builds upon our highly successful Rebel polyurethane technology with yet another pace-setting innovation for demanding tissue applications,” said Bill Butterfield, EVP and CTO of Xerium. “And our new ProGloss portfolio of composite calender roll covers provide the ideal set of options for our customers that depend on critical calender operations."
