1. Reuse internally within a given operation or between plants of multi-plant companies. 2. Customer return programs , cores returned for refillment. 3. Supplier return programs, outside film suppliers provide film on returnable cores. 4. Cleanliness and sanitary applications where fiber dust from paper cores cannot be tolerated—ie. medical, pharmaceutical, photovoltaic, etc. 5. Better winds–eliminates wrinkling, telescoping, and other winding issues due to DuraCore’s accuracy and true-ness.
DuraCores vs. Other Reusable Cores:
Dimensional Accuracy—tighter dimensional tolerances than other “permanent” cores such as aluminum or steel, with an out-of-round of less than 0.015”. Bow is almost eliminated to 0.005” per ft., or less.
Dimensional Stability—will not shrink or swell with changes in humidity or degrade due to moisture such as with paper cores.
Superb Winding/Unwinding—Eliminates wrinkling, improves stack-up, enables higher speeds and less waste.
Strength and Durability—exceptional radial and flat crush as well as beam strength.
Safety—no burrs, dings, and sharp edges as with aluminum and steel cores. Lighter and easier to handle than steel cores.
