TYPE OF ROLLER FABRICS

Paint rollers are a fast and effective tool for applying paint to any surface; however, not all rollers are created equal! Today paint rollers come in a variety of materials and sizes. Choosing the right type of roller for your next paint project will make a visible difference in your final result.

KNIT & WOVEN FABRICS 

The majority of paint roller fabrics are manufactured by knitting or weaving the fabric securely onto the backing. 


*Note that there are specialty fabrics such as foam where neither of these processes applies.

KNIT FABRIC

Knitted fabrics have a looped backing which results in a more absorbent fabric. These fabrics optimize paint retention and release for increased paint capacity. 

WOVEN FABRIC

Woven fabrics are made out of a continuous yarn and tighter cross-section backing. This results in a sturdy fabric with minimal shedding for a lint free application, perfect for interior and delicate surfaces that need the smoothest of finishes.

CORE TYPES 

RollerLite® paint roller fabrics come in a variety of core types and sizes. The majority of RollerLite® cores are constructed with a thermobonded polypropylene, giving the roller the strength and durability to last through all types of jobs. Our epoxy urethane bonded phenolic core rollers are ideal for any situation dealing with a high temperature surface, such as roofing.
