Default Paper curl

I do a lot of printing on Epson Luster 13" rolls.
About a year ago they changed the paper so that it now has a
back coating and is much stiffer. As it comes out of the printer
it has a pronounced curl which gets worse as the paper feeds
from closer to the core.
I roll it up backwards around an empty core and leave it this
way for a day or so, but it still has a slight curl. Even flattening
in a dry mount press doesn't seem to help.
Anyone have any ideas on how to get it to lie flat? Thanks...

I could never find one unfortunately.
For the thin paper we ignore it.
For the thick paper we put it through the sheet-metal roller.
sounds weird, but it works just fine, but you don;t use it quite
conventionally, and takes some setting up so ya don;t get ya paper dirty.

If you do manage to find a standalone one, I will be interested in knowing
aswell .

Hopefully someone else here will know.
