Refurbishing Rubber Rollers

At REDCO, we specialize in returning worn-out rubber rollers to peak performance. Our comprehensive rubber roller recovering services help you get the most out of your existing rollers, saving you time and money. From large industrial rubber rollers to specialized custom-molded rubber rollers, REDCO's rubber roller resurfacing processes can return your rollers to optimal conditions.

How Does the Rubber Roller Recovering Process Work?

Our technicians thoroughly assess your rollers to determine the best recovery approach. If your rollers have minimal wear, we can often regrind or "kiss grind" the surface to bring it back to life. This quick, cost-effective solution utilizes our precision grinding machines to restore a smooth, like-new finish. To recover rubber rollers that have more significant wear, the process includes:

  • Inspection and Evaluation: Our technicians inspect your roller for wear or damage. This assessment helps determine the best course of action for recovery.
  • Surface Preparation: We remove the damaged or worn rubber layer through a grinding process, creating a clean surface for the new rubber.
  • Rubber Selection and Bonding: Our technicians bond new rubber to the roller core.
  • Finishing and Quality Control: The recovered roller undergoes a final grinding process to achieve the desired surface finish and dimensional tolerances.

When to Recover vs. Replace Rubber Rollers

While rubber roller resurfacing is a great way to extend the life of a rubber roller, there are instances where replacement is necessary. Often, recovering is a better option than replacement for your rubber rollers if:

  • The core of your roller is still in good condition (no cracks, bends, or significant rust)
  • The roller surface shows only minor wear and tear, including nicks, grooves, or flat spots
  • The roller is still within its dimensional tolerances

Recovering may not be an option if the roller core is damaged or compromised. Likewise, replacement may be necessary if the roller surface is severely worn, cracked, or delaminated. If you're unsure whether or not your rubber rollers need replacement, REDCO can help. Our technicians meticulously assess your rollers to determine if refurbishment is possible. We only recommend recovery when it delivers a like-new roller at significant savings compared to replacement.
