Embossing Rolls

Fibre filled backing rolls represent the best performing and most cost effective alternative
for the majority of embossing applications today.

Woollen Paper

Bowl Properties related to Calendering Characteristics

  • Cotton and wool paper-based cover of a pressed construction
  • Wool content (10-45%) and hardness can be varied to suit
    the application
  • Conforms to the engraved steel roll to give a precise emboss
  • Suitable for fine or deep designs
  • Geared and un-geared applications

Super Elastic™

  • 100% woven cotton-based cover of a pressed construction
  • Suitable for fine designs (under 1mm pattern depth)
  • Greatly reduced run-in time
  • Shallow patterns can be run over each other without the need for regrinding (ideal for Turret Embossers)
  • Highly resilient – minor damage marks recover easily
  • Less machining means longer roll life and reduced downtime
  • Geared and un-geared applications
  • Increased roll life and improved productivity over traditional woollen paper rolls


  • Woven and knitted natural fabrics
  • Woven and knitted synthetic fabrics
  • Non-wovens
  • Paper
  • Vinyl / imitation leathers
  • Aluminium foils

Operational benefits

  • Excellent smoothing effect
  • Excellent glazing effect when used in conjunction with a highly polished steel roll
  • Excellent densification of calendered cloth
  • Running stability enables higher and more homogenous lustre at higher speeds
  • Syncast™ produces excellent lustre / feel / matt effects when used in combination with cotton rolls
