Elastomers

 

Thistle Roller warranties all roller work for one year. Be sure of what you're buying. Many roller companies use Code names for their compounds. It is a wonderful scare tactic but you deserve the right to know what you're buying. Quality and performance is our number one concern, not coding a common compound that limits your vendor options. Thistle Roller will develop a compound for your specific application. -No Games!
