cleaning sticky rollers

Hi, we are new to Briar press. Have Kelsey rollers in the hot studio, and they are really, really sticky. Like glue sticking to each other. Can anyone inform us as what we should clean them with. Thanks Glad we found this site.

In my experience, when rollers get like this it is time to have them re-cast or replaced.

I think that many are hesitant to tell you that you probably have composition rollers which do not fair well at all in HOT places. They are basically melting and DE-composing right in front of you. Don’t know if it is too late to get them into a cooler environment.
