VinylGuard Benefits

VinylGuard’s unique high-performance roller and skatewheel covers are the answer to many material handling equipment problems

 

PROBLEM:

Scratched, nicked, dinged, damaged surfaces including wood, glass and fine finishes

VINYLGUARD SOLUTION:

Heavy-duty VinylGuard quickly and easily shrinks over metal conveyor rollers to protect wood, fragile glass and other delicate surfaces from the damage caused by rubbing against abrasive bare metal during production and material handling

 

PROBLEM:

Products easily damaged or broken by repeated shocks, bouncing and vibration

VINYLGUARD SOLUTION:

Apply VinylGuard’s cushioning, shock absorbing, bounce dampening, roller covering system over metal rollers

  • Slide a sleeve of 14″ thick, cushioning, shock absorbing, high-compression nitrile butadiene foam rubber over a 1.9″ – 2.0″ metal roller to cushion weight of up to 40 pounds per square inch
  • Shrink custom diameter-sized VinylGuard over the foam rubber for a long-lasting, abrasion resistant, protective covering

NOTE: A minimum of 5/8″ spacing between rollers before applying is required

VINYLGUARD SOLUTION FOR FOOD-GRADE APPLICATIONS:

Food-grade USFDA (21 CFR) Antimicrobial VinylGuard, for food-grade material handling equipment, is impervious to chlorinated cleansers and easy to wipe down and clean

VinylGuard’s cushioning, shock absorbing roller covering system, with closed-cell foam rubber construction, will not absorb or transmit moisture or liquids used for sanitary wash-downs and maintenance

 

PROBLEM:

Conveyor rollers have little traction and cannot grip cardboard, glass, wood etc., which slip and slide, especially on inclines

VINYLGUARD SOLUTION:

TractionPlus™ radiation cross-linked elastomer roller covering with a high coefficient of friction – the force that holds things together – provides maximum traction for a non-slip roller surface

  • 10X the coefficient of friction of metal conveyor rollers
  • 2X the coefficient of friction of polyurethane covered rollers

TractionPlus™ quickly and easily shrinks over metal conveyor rollers. Long-lasting, 60 mils thickness protects and cushions products on material handling equipment and keeps them moving

 

PROBLEM:

Harsh, unpleasant noise and vibration produced by metal conveyor rollers on industrial conveyor systems

VINYLGUARD SOLUTION:

50 mils up to 100 mils thick VinylGuard reduces clatter, banging, rattling and ringing and eliminates vibration. VinylGuard conveyor covers are engineered to provide a thick, long-lasting, abrasion and chemically resistant roller coating which significantly reduces noise and dampens the vibration of metal rollers on high speed conveyor systems

 

PROBLEM:

Degradation of conveyor system rollers and skatewheels in caustic, wet, dirty industrial environments

VINYLGUARD SOLUTION:

VinylGuard shrink-to-fit conveyor roller and skatewheel covers are highly resistant to chemicals, oils, grease, acids, chlorinated cleansers, salt water, moisture and fungus

  • Non-marking VinylGuard roller sleeves will not stain, rust, crack or peel
  • VinylGuard roller covers are easy to clean and long-lasting

PROBLEM:

Damaged PVC conveyor rollers

VINYLGUARD SOLUTION:

Quickly and easily renew PVC conveyor rollers with VinylGuard shrink-to-fit roller sleeves

  • Simply remove the damaged roller from the conveyor channel frame
  • Quickly shrink a sleeve of VinylGuard over the old PVC roller
  • Replace the roller in the conveyor channel frame
