UNI-PRO Microfibre Roller Covers are all purpose lint-free covers offering high absorption and superior paint pick up and release, resulting in a professional, smooth finish.
Available in 230mm and 270mm lengths to go on roller frames 230mm and 270mm wide. Choose from 4mm, 10mm or 15mm Nap according to your project - see below.
Suitable for: all types of paints. Use 10mm Nap for general low sheen wall painting, 4mm Nap for satin or gloss enamels, and 15mm Nap for textured walls.
Directions: Before use, rinse cover in water to remove any loose fibre then allow to dry.
When ready to use, pour paint into a roller tray and run roller back and forth in it to get an even amount of paint on it. Not too much and not too little!
Spread the paint on the wall in light, even strokes and in varying directions until the surface is well covered. Then roll back over the painted surface with long, light strokes in a single direction to get a smooth even surface.
After use, roll out excess paint on newspaper or rags, then remove the cover from frame and wash sleeve thoroughly. Rinse and leave to dry standing on end.
Extra tips : If using with the same paint again the next day you can skip washing the roller out, and instead wrap it in plastic to exclude air and keep moist. Remove the plastic next day and you are good to go. Rollers will sometimes keep moist up to a week wrapped like this.
To prevent uneven compression of the fibres, rotate the cover around on the frame when resting so the pressure point is not staying on one side.
