WINtrac Coatings

The revolutionary WINtrac™ coatings are formulated for a wide range of applications including web roll handling, printing processes, and adhesive applications. This unique coating process was specially designed to complement and enhance WINertia™ aluminum idler rollers.

Traction is improved with micro grooving on all WINtrac coatings. WINtrac provides durability similar to anodized rollers with added benefits:

  • Outperforms traction of uncoated, anodized or spiral grooved rollers
  • Outperforms ink picking/release of anodized/spiral groove rollers

The WINtrac™ coating is directly integrated with the WINertia™ aluminum idler roller manufacturing process. We eliminate the outsourcing time normally associated with coating rollers. As a result, we provide customers with the highest quality coated rolls at the lowest possible price. This inline integration also allows for a short lead-time. WINtrac™ coated rolls are manufactured just as quickly as an uncoated roll – just 5 business days.

 

Anodized Coatings

Anodized coatings offer a great way to increase the durability, abrasion resistance and life of your rollers. The hard aluminum oxide layer resists scratching and abrasive materials. Componex offers both type II and type III hard coats, with black dye and PTFE impregnation as options.

Want to maximize the performance of RotoRepel release coating on your WINertia idlers? Order it applied over a type II or type III anodized finish for maximum life.
