New Hudson Corporation is the industry leader in design and manufacture of coated lehr and lift-out rollers. Thermal spray ceramic coating is the preferred method for ultra thin glass production.
The result is an extremely smooth and hard polished roller surface. A surface that can be easily and effectively cleaned either in the plant without special equipment or in-site (in the lehr) at operating temperature. The hard ceramic surface can withstand aggressive cleaning methods without damaging the roller surface. Additionally, the thermal barrier characteristics of the various ceramic-coating options reduce heat transfer between the glass and the lehr roller.
Coatings can be applied to new rollers or as an effective method to restore used stainless steel rollers to like new tolerances with improved performance characteristics.
