SHORT NAP: is suited for application to smooth to smooth surfaces. Produces fine stippled finish.

Epoxy coating products and their respective solvents or reducers play havoc with materials used for paint roller fabrication.  Plastic based fabrics used for the roller nap, PVC or similar plastics used to make the roller core, even wound phenolic core, can degrade, or worse, break down completely when used with these coatings and solvents. Glue breaking down under chemical intrusion has always been an achilles heel of paint rollers.

So we designed a paint roller that removed these problems.

The VIKING Y-Frame Lambswool paint roller is combo sleeve and frame unit designed for heavy duty and industrial application needs, where the use of epoxies and powerful solvents might compromise the integrity of a glued roller, or for those jobs where a fragile plastic or simple "cage" type frame is just not up to the task.

The combination of lambswool, polypropylene core and glue-less construction method of the VIKING Y-Frame sleeve, paired with the mig-welded steel Y-Frame, result in a paint roller that is unsurpassed in its ability to resist the harshest of painting environments.

Roller Sleeve

The VIKING Y-Frame roller sleeve utilizes 100% Australian select premium grade lambskin, big-bore polypropylene tube and no glue in its construction.

The use of a larger 47mm diameter polypropylene core results in a paint roller with a 15-20% greater paint holding capacity than a roller of the same length using standard 38mm core.  The 305mm Y-Frame paint roller on 47mm core, for example, has a capacity similar to that of a 360mm roller on standard 38mm core.


The VIKING Y-Frame is a robust mig-welded steel frame that is designed to be used exclusively with the VIKING Y-Frame sleeve and will accept a threaded extension pole.
