Selecting a compound calls for an understanding of the application, ambient temperatures, chemicals involved, pressure involved and operating intervals of your roller. Our technicians will assess your roller’s environment and select the most effective compound. All materials (soft and hard) are machined to exacting tolerances, in any shape or form. You will be confident in your rollers endurance when you choose AMES Direct for your next batch of rollers.

DO YOU KNOW YOUR DURO?

Durometer (duro) or Shore Hardness is a scale for measuring the density of a compound. The Shore scale was defined by Albert Ferdinand Shore, who developed a device to measure Shore hardness in the 1920s. Shore developed three scales to measure a compounds density; Shore 00, Shore A and Shore D – we normally use the Shore A scale. It is critical to select the correct compound shore to ensure a high performance. We can supply you with a Durometer so you can determine the hardness of your existing rollers. This will assist our technicians develop a roller to match or outperform your current rollers.
