CASE STUDY: The rubber really matters on rubber covered rollers.
Problem: A major consumer goods producer had a problem. The foil packaging of their popular self-moistened towelettes was sticking to production equipment. This compromised the quality of their end product and required extensive labor and factory down-time to remediate. Furthermore, the rollers, to which the foil packaging got stuck, were frequently damaged during clean-up. This created lengthier and even more expensive downtime and substantially elevated production costs.
Solution: We quickly recognized that the rubber formulation was poorly specified. We stripped the problematic silicone rubber from four of the customer’s rollers and recoated them with our proprietary V- series non-stick rubber. Our customer ran these side by side their current material and quickly determined that the MRP rollers were vastly superior as they showed virtually no build up. MRP has been the sole source for these rollers ever since.
