The finishing step of stainless steel production is crucial to ensure not only uniform quality with excellent formability and corrosion resistance, but also to guarantee high dimensional accuracy. Vesuvius manufactures ZYALITE® A&P composite catenary line roller covers which meet the requirements of the stainless steel strip producer. The unique material configuration provides a thermally stable and very durable conveying surface which is almost resistant to the pick up of metallic oxides from steel strip.
ZYALITE® composite roller benefits
- Strong resistance to build up of foreign material
Either in the form of Chrome or Iron Oxide derived compounds.
- The attributes of a porous but flexible ceramic equates to the following excellent properties:
Dimensional stability, thermal stability, low thermal conductivity, stable T.I.R., no delamination or shrinkage of the cover and it has excellent thermal shock properties.
- Offer superior quality
In production of Austenitic, Martensitic and Ferretic strip by resisting pick-up, improved durability, reduced wear and extended life.
- Excellent load bearing capabilities
Can be used to convey strip from 0.009” (0.20mm) to 0.500” (12.70mm) in thickness
