DURATrax™ Family of Polyurethane Roll Covers
Our most technically advanced reel spool cover
ReelExtreme™ is essentially a “dead” product that absorbs virtually all of the energy applied to it. This means that the roll cover will not bounce or vibrate when loaded onto the reel drum and turn-ups begin instantly with less wasted paper from wrinkles and slippage. ReelExtreme™ Covers are extremely impact resistant and provide the spool with the greatest protection from reel drums, hoists, primary arms and journal strands. ReelExtreme™ is also the most abrasion resistant cover we manufacture and will provide years of reliable service.
Reel spools, reel drums and winder drums.
Cover Attributes – Advantages & Benefits
- Traction – Tighter turn-ups and less wasted paper equal money saved
- Cut Resistance – Resists knife cuts. Toughest cover to cut in the paper industry
- Durability – Up to 10x more abrasion resistant than rubber covers
- Impact Resistance – Dramatically reduced damage from hoists and primary arms
- Release – Surface morphology provides for exceptional sheet release
- Stress Relieved – Cuts that do occur will close up and self “heal”. Cuts will not propagate like they do with rubber covers.
- Noise Reduction – Virtually noiseless loading onto the reel drum
- Vibration Dampening – Smoother turn-ups means fewer wrinkles and less wasted paper.
- Bond Strength - ReelExtreme ™ uses a special PolyFuse™ bonding system usually reserved for press roll applications. Bond strength far exceeds the tensile strength of the polymer.
