Supercalender rolls for the paper production industry
Combining the best in British engineering, heritage and innovation, we have been manufacturing specialist supercalendering rolls for over 200 years to the world’s paper industry. From cotton and wool rolls for general supercalendering, through to high-production, high-temperature rolls
for specialist paper finishing to the highest standards. We manufacture new rolls to customer specifications, as well as refilling or recovering your existing rolls.

Our newly developed Ultra DP roll cover has the highest Degree of Polymerisation (DP) of any fibre roll cover, meaning that it will give longer life due to less embrittlement than a normal cotton bowl filler. This means longer grinding intervals and less diameter loss during grinding.
“Simtex scores through its unsurpassed properties of heat resistance, combined with the retention of full elasticity in the nip. There is also no risk of premature failure caused by cracking — a problem which often occurs with competitors’ polymer rolls. With Simtex, customers can both optimise quality and save on the cost of having to replace rolls more regularly.”
Over 200-years of experience goes into our roll-making by time-tested craftsmen, combined with our patented advanced technology. This gives you the best supercalender rolls in the world today that perform consistently to specifications.
