Heat-shrinkable sleeves

The installation of FEP or PFA sleeves offers non-stick and anti-corrosion properties on cylinders used in various sectors.
The sleeves protect the surface of the rollers, optimise productivity, reduce down time linked to handling, prevent jamming and products sticking to the rollers.
