Textile Speciality Compounds

Nelson Roller & Rubber have been associated with the textile trade since 1902. During this time a range of compounds has been developed for combing, spinning and heat setting, and every week thousands of kilos of yarn and top are produced from rollers covered in our workshop.
Wide Range of Industrial Roller Coverings

With backing from our Colne Valley Polymers Division, Nelson Roller & Rubber is able to offer a broad range of roller coverings in different polymers and hardnesses (including polyurethane's). To guide our customers in selecting a suitable roller covering compound, on request we can offer you the chemical resistance of each polymer. Some of our branded coverings include Colnflex, Colnite and Colntex

Colnflex: A terpolymer blend designed to give good dynamic and grip properties whilst exhibiting oil and heat resistance up to 130°C. Widely used in glue spreader and belt sander applications in woodworking plus widespread use in polythene extrusion and bag-making.

Colnite: A highly sophisticated oil resistant rubber with high abrasion-resistance and heat resistance up to 170°C. Applications include friction feed wheels and hot white spirit and wax applications. Available in durometers from 70° shore A to 99° shore A.

Colntex: An abrasion and oil resistant textile roller covering in a distinctive yellow. It is designed to give good compression set and nip properties but avoids the swelling, sweating and deformation which can occur with polyurethane coverings.
Special Profiling

We have developed considerable expertise over the years in cutting special grooves in rubber, used extensively in the woodworking and packaging trades. We also dynamically balance belt sander rollers.
Repairs, Regrind's and New Metal Stocks

We offer an efficient metal spraying service to refurbish worn shafts and journal ends. Keeping costs down is important and roller life can often be prolonged by regrinding. Both worn and ecceniric sections can be reground, restoring rollers to their original profile, albeit reduced in diameter

Nelson Roller and Rubber can undertake the manufacture of complete new metal stocks. We also carry stocks of new silicone seal rollers for polythene bag machines, together with some draw rollers.

Anti-Static and Conductive Applications

Applications Static build up can be a problem in plastic film handling. To combat this we can supply a variety of antistatic or truly conductive (<10 OHM/CM resistivity) nitrile rubbers.
Silicone Rollers and Mouldings

We have extensive expertise in the manufacture of silicone rubber rollers. Working with suppliers we can provide a wide range of silicones in durometers from 40° to 80° shore A. Silicone mixes can be customised for either pure heat resistance and/or release properties.
A large inventory of silicone gum is held mainly in red oxide, although whites and specials can be processed to order. These can be quickly transformed into rollers or moulded parts in our clean, well equipped roller unit or moulding division.
Pharmaceutical Mouldings

The company has recently installed a 100 Ton Thompson compression moulding press, plus a Bridge Mill to complement the other presses in the refurbished clean moulding room, which specializes in moulding for the pharmaceutical trade. Silicone mouldings are a speciality with a wide variety of durometars and physical properties.
