Xerium Technologies Inc., Youngsville, N.C., USA, has launched a new generation of Genesis calender roll cover technology. Genesis XTi and Genesis APi are the latest additions to the Genesis family of roll covers.

Genesis XTi and Genesis APi roll cover technologies were developed to address our customers' requests for increased life and improved roll durability," said Bill Butterfield, EVP and CTO of Xerium. "Composite calender covers operate under the most demanding load conditions for nipped roll covers and these new generations of Genesis covers have been developed to improve crack and barring resistance while ensuring maximum gloss for critical grades. We are continually striving for innovations enabling our customers to achieve new performance levels by applying our technology."
