Gordon Brush® offers 4 foam rollers in sizes of 3"; 4", 7", and 9", with a solvent resistant phenolic core and a 1/8" nap. These rollers are great for use on smooth surfaces when using enamels, varnishes, paints, and urethanes.
Painters use foam rollers for smooth interior walls, doors, and cabinets. Foam rollers glide along a smooth flat surface very easily and dispense the paint on the surfaces evenly. Foam rollers tend to last a shorter period of time than traditional rollers.
Foam is a material that absorbs liquids very easily. When the foam surface is smooth, it evenly redistributes the absorbed liquid. Then paints tend to absorb very well. For this reason, foam rollers are able to distribute latex and water-based paints very well.
Foam rollers tend to last a shorter period of time than traditional rollers, which is precisely why Gordon Brush only offers .12-packs of all stock paint brush roller covers. They are excellent tools for a painter who does not perform painting jobs on a routine basis. If you are someone who only paints a room every few years, foam rollers are ideal for you.
