I used these foam rollers to prime a skiff using Totalboat gray primer. The foam cover came off after rolling about 3sq.ft. Tried another one, same result, but this time I couldn't roll 2sq.ft. Description states that they're good for urethane and oil based paints among paints. Then I read the reviews. Several reviews stated the same problem. Now what. Called Jamestown and was told I couldn't return the rollers because I used 2. Please Jamestown stand behind the products you sell. Basically the rollers are garbage when you use them with Totalboat primer.

Don't buy these rollers. They are totally useless (I couldn't use another word to describe them as it was flagged as profanity). I am not exagerating, these rollers fell apart in five minutes! I was using them with Awl Grip primer on my 43" sailing ketch. I finally gave up and purchased cheap from rollers from Home Depot. Don't waste your money on these foam rollers. The photos I've included just show the beginning of the separation. Which at this point they were unusable. The foam separated completely from the roller.

Foam separated from core. Used 8 rollers just to do a 7x12' area. Couldn't keep a line, wasted paint, and messy.

I purchased a box of 24 (the number on the bar code label of each roller is 82826 00033 - see photo) to use with TotalBoat primer, bilge paint, and topside paint. The first spread the primer very well, but soon (5 to 8 square feet or so) began to loose its foam, starting where the foam is joined. The next two disintegrated faster - after rolling a few sf. I was not overly heavy handed. I rolled out thinly, as instructed. I imagine that they will do fine with latex house paint, so I can use them OK. Quality seems OK, but not for use with the solvent in TotalBoat primer. That leaves the question of how to apply the primer. So it's down to the hardware store and try out whatever they have. Thoughts, Jamestown? Thanks

I have used Poly-Rollers by JEN for over 15 years. In addition to the applications listed in the product description I also find they are extremely useful for sticky, messy jobs like bottom paint and epoxy. The rollers do react and break down when used with these products but the price is so much lower then the rollers recommended for bottom pain and epoxy that I find it a better value even though I go through 2 or 3 in the course of a job. I've had very good luck with these rollers and can highly recommend them. Just replace with a fresh one as soon as any signs of deterioration is noticed.

I have had a sign shop for over 30 years and there is no better way other than spraying oil paint to MDO board or any other smooth surface. The trick is rolling it on really thin once and then go over lightly to smooth out bubbles and orange peel. Add second and third coats to end up with glass like finish!

I'm laminating floor joists with 3/4" OSB and using Gorilla glue. I purchased the 3" wide roller covers as a disposable item, and I'm very happy.
