HEAT RESISTANT TEXTILES & BELTING
OVEN ROLLER TAPES AND ROPES

For over 25 years our TUFF TEMP has been the world's leading products of high temperature resistant Para-aramid Synthetic Fiber Oven Roller Tapes and para-aramid synthetic fiber Ropes. 

Our para-aramid synthetic fiber Oven Roller Tapes and
Ropes are used as a spiral wrap on the quench rolls of horizontal tempering ranges. Our Roller Tapes and Ropes are used to help convey and protect the hot glass during the rapid cool down process.



During the thermal tempering process glass is heated up in the range at temperatures nearing the melting point. Soon thereafter the glass exits the furnace and is rapidly quenched with cool air to strengthen it. As the glass exits the furnace it is conveyed over a series of cold metal rollers. These quench rollers are spirally wrapped with
our para-aramid synthetic fiber Oven Roller Tapes or Ropes, to prevent the still hot glass from picking up unacceptable thermal checks.

 
Today, our para-aramid synthetic fiber Oven Roller Tapes and Ropes are supplied to most of the world's largest horizontal tempering range manufacturers. Our customers include the leading horizontal tempering range OEM's in all corners of the world. In addition to supplying the OEM's, our products are directly supplied to numerous secondary glass tempering companies. Our global customers include many of the world's largest flat glass manufacturers as well as many small and mid-size companies as well. Whether a multi-billion dollar multinational company, or a small local startup, all customers are treated with the highest level of customer service.  

Our woven para-aramid synthetic fiber Oven Roller Tapes and Ropes have become the industry standard for flat glass manufacturers and horizontal tempering range OEM's because our Tapes and Ropes have consistently proven to offer unmatched wear life and durability.

In addition to superior wear life, our
woven para-aramid synthetic fiber Oven Roller Tapes and square 
braided para-aramid synthetic fiber Ropes offer several performance advantages over other competing roller wrap materials:

Competing roller wrap materials that are round braided ropes, tend to flatten out and get elliptical, especially when running heavier weight glass. This usually leads to uneven roller heights throughout the quench section, causing the glass to skew during processing. Our woven para-aramid synthetic fiber Oven Roller Tapes and square braided para-aramid synthetic fiber Ropes resist deformation and maintain a consistent roller height throughout the range, even after extended use with running heavier weight glass. 

  • Our product's dense woven and square braided constructions offer superior durability, and highly resists deformation. 
  • Using only mechanically enhanced para-aramid synthetic fiber yarns, all our Oven Roller Tapes and Ropes are completely non-marking on the glass. 

Most competing roller wrap materials that utilize a shinier filament-based Aramid or Aramid  blended yarn, tend to leave unacceptable oil marks on many sensitive glass types.

Our woven para-aramid synthetic fiber Oven Roller Tapes are manufactured and supplied in three different standard sizes to meet your tempering needs. Also available is our "TUFFCORD" 5.5 mm x 5.5 mm braided square Rope. Noted below for your review, are the part numbers (Pattern), width and thickness specifications for each of our Tapes and Ropes.
