DuraCore - Plastic Cores
DuraCores are extremely tough, durable - almost indestructible - extruded, rigid plastic cores. They are created using our specially engineered plastic material, our proprietary tooling and technology, and our specialized manufacturing process. These unique plastic cores are extremely resistant to impact damage, collapse and crush. Not only are they moisture resistant, they are waterproof. They are also resistant to most chemicals and solvents.
We have the capabilities to create custom cores from 1/2" ID all the way up to 8" ID, in almost any wall thickness, color or length that you require. In short, we can run practically any core size that you may need. Our DuraCores are used for:
Speciality Film Cores
Composite Fabric and Fiber Cores
Stretch Film Cores
Metallic Foil Cores
Plastic Film Cores
Cores for Paper
Clean Room Cores
DuraCore Common Sizes
Custom-Made Plastic Core Sizes
DuraCore Customer Comments
Long Life, Reusable Cores
Our customers continue to tell us about the jaw dropping performance and lifespan that their DuraCores are achieving. Not only have they performed well in tough applications that may have destroyed a competitor's paper core or plastic core in one or two uses, many of our customers are getting a 100+ reuses and years of performance from each core. A relatively expensive $15 DuraCore being used 100 times costs only $.15 / use!
Huge Range of Core Sizes
We have in-house tooling to produce one of the industry's largest size range of plastic cores. We go from the very tiniest of diameters to 8" inside diameter. We can run wall thicknesses that can match the demand of virtually any situation. If your application happens to require a custom size tooling, we can easily custom make tooling to give you exactly what you need.
Tight tolerances, precision length cutting, specialized operations like end notching and chamfering
Our DuraCores are run to consistent tight tolerances and are precision cut to your exact length requirements with a smooth, burr free cut. Whether you need the ends chamfered, end notches to match up with the keys in your equipment or some other special requirement, just let us know. We can run your DuraCores in different colors to allow you to sort the cores by length or to use color to identify the material on the cores.
Medical and Clean Room Cores
If you need a medical or clean room quality core packaged to an extremely tight cleanliness spec, just let us know. Our DuraCores are currently used in medical room applications
Comparison of DuraCores to other Plastics
Not all rigid plastic cores are the same. Our DuraCores are made from a specialized engineered plastic material. We routinely get calls from customers having problems using other suppliers' plastic cores. Whether you are using HDPE, styrene, ABS or paper you need to give DuraCores a try. The results have been very impressive! Give us a call!
Going form a Paper Core or Paper Tube to a Plastic Core
Our DuraCores are not only moisture resistant, they are waterproof. They are seamless, don't "dog ear" and produce almost negligible dust compared to paper cores. They are tough as nails. Even at half the wall thickness many of our DuraCores are getting 100+ reuses, netting out at a fraction of the cost of paper, not to mention the saving in disposal and freight costs! If you are currently using paper cores, paper tubes, cardboard cores or fiber cores, please give us a call. We may be able to reduce your operating costs and put money straight to your bottom line.
Superior Impact Strength Core
We have impact tested DuraCores against comparable ABS cores, styrene cores, HIPS cores, HDPE cores and paper cores. Not one has come close to the impact strength of DuraCores.
Superior Crush Strength Core
DuraCore's superior crush strength reduces the chance of your product being damaged by a crushed or "dog boned" core. Even wound with with biaxially stretched plastic film that acts like a boa constrictor on the DuraCores, we have customers getting 100+ reuses.
Moisture-Proof and Waterproof Cores
DuraCores are virtually impervious to water, moisture and humidity. You can even store them underwater.
Low Dust Cores
Our DuraCores have been extensively used in the manufacture of medical films and for other sensitive roll films and materials. They do not generate contaminating particles or dust like paper cores.
The plastic material we use for our DuraCores has superior resistance to most chemicals and solvents, some of which may be used in your manufacturing process.
Long, long life Cores
While the life of any DuraCore will depend on the severity of the application and the maintenance and alignment of the equipment that they are being run on, much to our dismay, DuraCores last an awful long time. Some have lasted years and hundreds of reuses and are still going. We can safely say that more of our DuraCores are murdered by something external to the use like being run over by a forklift than ever die a natural death!
Superior Core ends
DuraCores are made of a solid wall of our specially engineered plastic material and not layers of paper. There are no paper "dog ears", fraying or worn ends to contaminate your product or reduce the core life.
Colored Cores for Length Sorting or Product Identification
We can provide you colored cores in a variety of colors to allow you to identify cores by length for easy sorting for reuse. Alternatively, you can use colored cores to identify the product wound on them.
Cost Saving Cores
Apart from the reduced amount damage to your good product when a core fails, the large number of reuses that a typical DuraCore gets means that the cost per use is usually just pennies. Warehouse and transportation costs of constantly bringing in more low-use cores and the transportation and disposal costs to get rid of failed cores also nibbles at your bottom line.
