Unilon







Rilsan® Inking Roller Technology
For 'Better than New' results

Technology moves on apace, but occasionally a well established process can prove to be a long term world-beater.

Unisurf Engineering Ltd has been setting the standard in surface technology and precision engineering since 1972. The company developed the unique UNILON process specifically to re-cover worn inking rollers in Rilsan¨ and to refurbish plastic or copper coated rollers, using an ink-receptive polymer. The results are impressive. Our coatings meet or exceed the stringent requirements of our OEM customers, while our refurbished rollers provide better than new performance at a fraction of the cost of new rollers.

UNILON can also be used as a highly effective corrosion barrier on rollers, shafts and components used in water and sewage treatment. The coating is widely used in contact with drinking water and other foodstuffs. Applications are also effective on valve stems, sewage processing rollers and other steel components requiring a highly corrosion resistant coating.

Being precision engineers we are accustomed to working to very close tolerances to meet the exacting standards demanded by our customers. As manufacturers of complete OEM Rilsan ¨ rollers including stock and coverings, our understanding of precision rollers is unsurpassed.
This capability, along with the excellence of the UNILON process and Rilsan®
polymer we use, adds up to an impressive combination. A long association with the printing industry and original equipment manufacturers also means that our understanding of our customers' needs is second to none.




RILSAN® Polymer

We use only Rilsan¨ polymer, which is the material used and trusted by all original equipment manufacturers, such as Heidelberg, Roland, Goss and Komori. The material is derived from castor oil and is therefore a renewable resource. The UNILON covering process includes damage assessment, stripping, re-engineering and coating to the required thickness.
