In extrusion, hot melt and lamination lines MITEX roller coverings are used for the manufacturing of plastic film and foils and for the converting process of paper and cardboard.
High tech foils, composite materials, embossed dashboard coverings for automotives, hygienic medical care materials, adhesive tapes, reflective foils for license plates, coverings and other special tapes are manufactured with MITEX roller coverings.
MITEX manufactures roller coverings in rubber, polyurethane and silicone for multiple purposes in the paper manufacturing, coating and converting industry. Further applications are press, guide and transport rollers as well as tambours.
Based on the individual requirements MITEX coverings can be manufactured with antiadhesive, antistatic or conductive properties.
The fastest and widest printing machines in the world are printing newspapers, magazines and catalogues on your paper with MITEX roller coverings.
State of the art properties of MITEX Coating Rolls/Applicator Rolls ULTRADUR enable a coating of different types of colours utilising the latest coil coating processes. Individual coatings and primers are readily applied with the latest type of coating rolls from MITEX. Technical staff of MITEX is at your disposal all over Europe.
MITEX Coating Rolls are available in different hardnesses from 40° - 70° Shore A.
MITEX coating material offers a wide range of solvent resistance to either polar chemicals like MEK, EtOH or non polar solvents like Petrol, Xylene, Cyclohexene and others. The state of the art compounding and hightech raw materials guarantee excellent mechanical properties in combination with lowest abrasion and highest cut resistivity. Resistance in different media after 24 hours.
An absolute homogenious surface due to proper mixing offers a surface structure in the range of a few micrometers. Antistatic Coating Rolls are available for the use in explosive areas.
Founding Mitex in 1954 Hans Knott provided the beginning of a successful development.
First flexo printing rolls were manufactured followed by industrial roller coverings from rubber, polyurethane, silicone and further special materials. World-wide the patented MITEX rubber covering equipment is known and used by almost 100 licensees for the manufacturing of roller coverings with MITEX technology. Nowadays MITEX Gummifabrik manufactures roller coverings for all industrial applications.
New materials are developed in MITEX laboratories. More than 600 compounds are available and are manufactured in the own mixing department for the MITEX roller production as well as for MITEX compound customers. The future directed R&D applications, simulations and continuous information exchange with the partners within the Global Roller Technologies Group provide the basis for the modern technology supplied by MITEX.
