Designed for concave surfaces and fillets where flat rollers are not effective, these barrel rollers feature strong steel frames and ferrule reinforced plastic handles that accept extension handles.
These rollers are machined with the deepest fins possible for efficient air relief and excellent lay up properties. As it is made from aluminium it is easy to clean in acetone.
In the event of a seized roller due to cured resin you can simply strip down and clean this roller by doing the following: First remove the screw at the end of the roller head, slide the roller head from the shaft of the roller handle and let all the parts soak in acetone overnight or for a few days.
You should soon notice the resin has started to soften and even curl away from inside the roller head’s grooves. clamp the roller head into a vice and use a wire brush to clean out the grooves. Use a thin long file to remove any resin debris from inside the head. Clean the shaft with acetone and wire wool and also clean the screw. Wax the shaft with mould release wax and reassemble the roller. It should now work as good as new providing all cured resin has been cleaned from the head and the roller shaft.
