Optimised, reliable cores

Strength Under Pressure

Our film cores are designed specifically to manage the stresses and pressures experienced during winding, handling, storage and unwinding of various film types, including: Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PPE), Bi-oriented Polypropylene (BOPP), Polyester, and Polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

Depending on the film, you need different core properties to provide efficient winding and contribute to a good roll structure. One of the biggest issues for the film industry is core crushing, which can cause machine downtime and add waste and cost for your customers. Sonoco Alcore’s dedicated film segment team provides industry-leading cores that use the latest testing technologies, such as radial crush, to ensure that you receive the best core for your needs. Learn the benefits and see how we've helped our customers.

Case Studies

Our Products at Work

Hi-Radius Core

Our Hi-Radius core has a smooth, rounded edge on the unwinding end, which allows the producer to avoid using plastic caps. This solution is especially effective if our customer is spinning and texturizing the yarn in-house.
