We are one of the very few manufacturers in the world to offer rigid solvent-resistant and aluminum cored polypropylene spiked rollers for the floor coating industry. Our Spiked Rollers are constructed by stacking solvent-resistant, interlocking rings of spikes around an aluminum core. These spiked rollers are vital in ensuring proper floor coating material adhesion. They are designed to be used on freshly applied floor coatings for the purpose of releasing trapped gas as well as to assist in the leveling process of several varieties of floor coatings. These rollers are easy to clean, allowing for repeated use. The applicator should also wear spiked shoes while using a spiked roller. We manufacture our spikes and end caps out of solvent-resistant High-Density (HD) and Ultra-High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene, respectively, for easier cleanup and extended wear.
Spikes are available in 7/16”, 9/16” and 13/16” lengths. These rollers also come in 36” and 48” widths which are preferred by some applicators when very large, flat areas need to be treated quickly. We also have 1-1/2” and 3” widths on special frames for very tight areas. Each of our 18” or wider rollers come with a heavy-duty aluminum frame, high-grade stainless steel axles, our superior gusset bracing and a maximum strength threaded handle adapter. Our 9” rollers come with either a special radial frame or a heavy-duty aluminum frame, both with a threaded handle adapter. The 1-1/2” and 3” rollers come on special handled frames. (Standard “paint roller” frames do not work with our 9” spiked rollers). Many factors can contribute to the creation of trapped gas bubbles in freshly applied protective coatings, particularly on floors. Our 7/16” and 13/16” Super Sharp Spiked Rollers are effectively used on most floor coatings and your choice between the two depends on the mil thickness specifications of the material being applied. Where a great abundance of bubbles are anticipated or seen, our 9/16” Super Sharp Spiked Rollers are ideal because of the greater number of spikes per square inch of roller surface. Most often, either the 7/16” or the 13/16” Super Sharp Spiked Rollers are adequate to get the job done.
