How to use the Colossus, Marathon and White Dove professional roller sleeves.

Here at Purdy we offer sleeves that give increased productivity and a smooth finish on any job. The woven covers allow for more paint pick-up and help reduce dripping and spatter - delivering an expert finish every time.

For when you’re short on time, the Colossus delivers a speedy finish, allowing pros to lay off the paint quickly. The sleeve offers greater pick up and release than other roller sleeves, which means less reloading and improved productivity.

The Colossus, ideal for ceilings and other larger jobs, is lightweight, durable and has tapered ends to avoid unsightly tram lines.
Available in 1 1/2" and 1 3/4" cores, the sleeve is suited for use with 9" - 18" frames, such as our Adjustable Frame 12" - 18", or Revolution 9” Frame

For smaller domestic jobs, White Dove leaves users with a perfectly smooth, lint free finish.Its quality nylon woven cover, leaves walls smooth and uniform, and reduces dripping and spatter when loading paint. Again, suitable for use with 9" - 18" frames, the White Dove is available in 1 1/2" and 1 3/4" polypropylene cores.
