These rollers work excellent for epoxy paint or primer. Just keep in mind to keep you paint or primer fresh by mixing smaller quantities. These hold up well if you don't allow the epoxy paint or primer to start getting tacky, if it does it will pull the roller cover apart. Great item, I just painted my whole boat with just 2 of them. People will give roller covers a bad rap because of their mistakes, like mixing to much epoxy and allowing it to start getting sticky, will give them bad reviews. But if you use them correctly they hold up well.

Easy to cut these covers on band saw to fit other size rollers

These roller covers work great for epoxy. The thin polyurethane material doesn't introduce bubbles into the epoxy. I was able to use a single roller cover to epoxy-coat a 14.5 foot kayak hull.

I was told these were the go to roller covers for epoxy. The worked fine for 10 minutes but then the foam starts to come loose.

Friend was using one of my roller covers and it started to shed pieces of foam. A couple days later I was using one and it unrolled the foam from the base. When I peeled the foam off I found out that most of the surface was covered by very little or no glue - bad place to save money.

very poor quality. the foam is wrapped on like the cardboard roll of paper towels. bought 2 packs. out of the 4, only 1 had the edges of the foam close to each other, the others all had gaps of up to a 1/4".

I used these covers to apply epoxy primer to my boat's bottom. It's a fiberglass 27'. I could only get 1 coat on 1 side before the foam began to separate from the core. These covers did give nice, uniform coverage before the foam came loose. I purchased another package of covers from a different manufacturer and they worked much better.

Used to apply two-part epoxy primer and two-part polyurethane paint on aluminum mast, boom, spin pole. Foam covering separates from fiber core. To cover half the circumferance of my 66 foot mast would require 5 covers. Initially I cut the roller covers in half (3.5 inches) when rolling my boom. I thought this may have caused the problem. However, I got the same failure using a full size (uncut) roller cover on my mast. I switched to another brand of foam roller cover and was able to complete one full coat on my mast using only one roller cover. It's possible the curvature of the mast caused the foam covering to creep on the core and that this failure would not occur on large flat surfaces.
