Ceramic characteristics make them a superior choice over carbon hardened or stainless steel, copper and chrome processes, which are subject to high-surface wear. Ceramic dampening rollers provide outstanding performance and require less maintenance than chrome rolls because of their unique ability to resist abrasion and corrosion while maintaining a consistent surface finish across and around the entire roll.
Ceramic can be impregnated with other materials such as Teflon ® for use as easy-cleaning or traction-control idlers, depending on the surface specified (smooth or rough).
