Voith Paper recently announced the launch of two new rubber roll covers, UniFilm and UniSize, for film and size presses.

The UniFilm rubber roll cover, to be used in film presses, offers high abrasion resistance and longer metering rod service. “Extensive trials and test series in European paper mills have provided proof that metering rod service life is actually extended thanks to UniFilm. Savings can be up to EUR 50,000 per year,” the company stated.

The UniSize roll cover offers better mechanical properties than standard roll covers and therefore offers greater resistance in the event of web breaks.

The new Uni series comprises an innovative filler system that creates the very uniform and stable surface roughness that is crucial to achieving a high-quality coating. It also features a new polymer matrix and new base layer structure that ensures maximum bonding to the roll core.
