PrinTexNG® cores

Textile producers,for both Nylon and Polyester Yarn, need a reliable core that streamlines the production process. Producers require a high quality core but in smaller quantities and increased colour variations, all at a lower price. PrinTexNG has been designed to help ease the pressures experienced by textile producers and at the same time meet their needs in terms of performance and value.

Hi-Radius cores

Our revolutionary Hi-Radius core significantly decreases yarn breaks and eliminates the use of plastic caps by delivering a core with a higher radius on the unwinding side. The core unwinds to the end of the bobbin, reducing yarn waste, and is 100% recyclable.

Delta Core Paper Cop

The Delta core paper cop provides a revolutionary alternative to traditional, expensive metal cops used during polyamide polyester yarn production, and is available in custom colours. Our paper cop removes recovery costs for reclaiming and refurbishing metal cops and replacement costs, and is 100% recyclable.

Hi-Radius Core
