Rubber Roller 101 Rubber is applied to rollers by means of extruding uncured rubber into a strip that wraps around a metal core that is clean prepared and primed. Autoclaves then vulcanize the rubber to the core cohesively. The rubber is then ground and polished to exacting standards, such as:
  • TIR – total indicated runout typically held to within 0.001″
  • Taper – straightness within 0.003″
  • Surface Finish – to meet the required Ra spec, typically 20-200 Ra
  • Durometer – +/- 5 points.
  • Finish Diameter – can hold as tight as +/- 0.001″
