Litho Build

Material: Litho Build is a cotton cover lighter in weight than Go-Knit, designed for water pick-up rollers on web offset newspaper presses. It’s also a favorite among Goss Community and Goss Urbanite users throughout the world. It can also be used to build up the diameter of a roller. Available in 25 yards (22.86m)/ roll, with outside diameters from 0.75 – 6″ (19 – 152.4mm).
  • Lint free, pattern free
  • Less water absorption than Go-Knit


  • Easly to install on the roller and “Ready to Go!”
  • Economical price.



  1. Cut cover about 12 inches longer than the roller. Allow extra material when using cable ties to secure to roller core/shaft.
  2. Simply slide the cover over the roller.
  3. The ends of the cover can now be sewn or wrapped tightly with string or secured with nylon cable ties. If sewing, make close stitches approximately 1/4″ (6.35mm) apart.
  4. Mount the roller(s) on the press. Adjust the cover-to-plate pressure according to the press manufacturer’s specifications.
