Rollers in the printing/paper industry are subject to the most diverse of operating environments including wear, chemical attack from dyes, thermal stress on heated rollers and mechanical stress from doctor blades. At the same time, they must exhibit a high surface finish over as long a length of time as possible (e.g. Yankee dryer rolls, corrugated rolls, pressure rolls).

The images below show a paper production plant (image 1), a traction coating on winder rolls for paper gripping/feeding (image 2), and the arc spraying coating of a print roll.
