High Performing Tube Cores

Whether it’s their durability or aesthetic superiority, a plastic tube core gives your products the quality finish they need to stand out on the shelf. They are also extremely durable, making them ideal for a wide range of applications.

Plastech’s experience in extruding plastic cores means we know what goes into manufacturing high-performance tube cores.

Quality, Quantity, Speed

The Plastech Group brand has become synonymous with superior plastic packaging over the years because we have remained loyal to our 3 core values: Quality, Quantity, Speed.

Providing exceptional products is at the core of everything we do, but we have also worked hard to ensure we achieve a trifecta by being able to fulfil every order, big or small, quickly.

Superior Polymer Plastic Materials

Our plastic cores for tubes are available in a wide range of polymer plastics such as Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Polypropylene (PP), Polystyrene (PS), and Polyethylene (PE). Each material is carefully selected and designed according to your bespoke requirements.

There are many benefits when using materials such as polymer plastic. Most notably, clients find that our plastic tube cores last much longer than cardboard and can be used in wet or inclement conditions.

Thermoplastic polymers also offer almost unlimited dimensional options and are flexible enough without compromising on strength.

Plastic Cores for Various Applications

Our extruded plastic cores are supplied to many industries, including manufacturers of:

  • Food Products
  • Twines
  • Stocking Net
  • Labels
  • Foils
  • Plastic Bags
  • Stretch Wrap
  • Paper
  • Film
  • Tape

Give us a call and tell us what you need and we will do what we can to make it happen!

Improved Resistance to Damage

Durability is perhaps the biggest advantage of plastic cores for tubes. Whether your products are getting shipped abroad or locally, plastic ensures your products remain undamaged during transit and get where they need to be without showing any signs of wear and tear.

A plastic core also offers better protection against dust and moisture, so storage isn’t a problem.

The added strength and flexible nature of plastic mean it offers higher resistance to damage overall and offers better protection for delicate items such as paper, film, and tape.

The benefits of a plastic core over a paper or cardboard core are undeniable.
