Question

What is the core material of this roller?

Asked on 10/01/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

The rollers have a composition core. They hold up well to epoxy.

Answer

I believe they were cardboard core. These rollers work very well with both paint and varnish.

Answer

Did you experience stipple from the rollers when using AWLGRIP topcoat, and if so did you tip afterwards? If you didn't tip, how well did the paint flow out? I've applied AWLGRIP topcoat with the Jen foam brushes to small parts and was pleased with the results. The brushes held up rather well.

Answered on 05/21/2014 by NEIL BLUM

Answer

Well not a chemist, but one who has bought and used dozens of these rollers with both AWLGRIP epoxy primer, AWLGRIP 2 part polyurethane enamels, and Interlux Perfection (2 part Polyurethane), the core is most likely a phenolic resin, as it does not fall apart after hours of use. I would assume that your question has more to do with how well the core holds up to the solvents used in some paints. I have not tested these rollers with Lacquers. Hope this helps.

Question

how thick of nap is this foam roller. i am hunting for 7" x1/8" nap foam rollers?

Top Answer

I do not know. I never used the rollers. I had someone else do the rolling. Sorry. Merry Christmas

Answer

The nap is about 1/8 inches. I bought these and some shorter rollers for rolling epoxy primer. They give quite a good finish once you figure out the optimum amount of thinners to add, but still need sanding afterwards. The primer dissolves the adhesive and after ten or fifteen minutes the foam starts unrolling and you need to change the roller. So if using aggressive thinners buy more than you think you need.

Answer

They are 1/8" thick. We were using them for coating a boat with epoxy but also found they worked very well for varnishing. They are good rollers. I have a new project for next year and will probably buy a case of them. Good luck

1/8 inch nap foam roller?

Asked on 07/06/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Used them with varnish on a boat. Worked great. As with a brush, requires tipping off.

Answer

1/8 inch nap foam roller great for high gloss finish on FLAT surface If painting a curved boat hull I use the "roll and tip" technique. Roll high gloss paint on with 3 inch 1/16 nap Mohair pink Redtree roller that Jamestown has and have someone follow me to tip the paint with long strokes of a paint brush to catch drips and sags. A 9 inch roller is too wide to use on curved surface will cause drips.

Answer

They come in packs of 2, just like it says in the description on the web-site. Love the rollers for spreading varnish before tipping.

Question

Can you use these for epoxy

Asked on 01/29/2018 by Tone230 from Oklahoma

Top Answer

These rollers tend to break down with epoxies, and would be fine for a very small project. We would recommend the Epoxy Plus roller covers generally.
