How to Cover Straight and Tapered Conveyor Rollers with VinylGuard

To Start
  1. Cut a length of VinylGuard® 2″ longer than the conveyor roller to allow for longitudinal shrinkage
  2. Slide the VinylGuard® over the roller, overlapping each end 1″

For Straight Conveyor Rollers

  • For small quantities use a high temperature heat gun with a high velocity air blower
  • To quickly shrink larger quantities use a convection oven or a conveyor oven

For Tapered Conveyor Rollers

  • Use a convection oven
Using a Heat Gun
  1. Hold the hear gun at a 45° angle, 3″ to 4″ away from material to prevent burning
  2. CAUTION – Do not apply excessive hear directly to the crease
  3. Slowly begin shrinking at one end and rotate the roller while rapidly moving the heat gun back and forth to avoid burning the vinyl. Apply sufficient heat to remove any winkles
  4. Allow the conveyor roller to fully cool
  5. Trim the excess vinyl with a sharp blade or utility knife and apply a little heat to remove any wrinkles
Using a Convection Oven
  1. In a 300°F convection oven, place the conveyor rollers in a jig or holding fixture to allow the hot air to circulate
  2. The rollers should remain in the oven for approximately 4 minutes
  3. Remove the rollers from the oven and allow them to fully cool
  4. Trim the excess vinyl with a sharp blade or utility knife
Using a Conveyor Oven
  1. In a 300°F (149°C) conveyor oven, place the rollers on the conveyor
  2. Adjust the conveyor speed to allow the rollers to remain in the oven for approximately 4 minutes
  3. Remove the rollers from the oven and allow them to fully cool
  4. Trim the excess vinyl with a sharp blade or utility knife

After shrinking and fully cooling, VinylGuard will not slip or loosen on the conveyor rollers
