Spiral wound tubes and cores

Check out our complete range of spiral wound cardboard tubes and cores for diverse applications. We produce in diameters from 20 to 635 mm, wall thicknesses of 1 to over 20 mm, and lengths between 6 and 12,000 mm, free of dust and burrs. Special treatments for the interior and/or exterior finish can be provided. 

Our film, foil and flexible packaging cores for industrial and consumer packaging are designed to cope with heavy demands. Our textile cores for the extrusion or finishing of yarns and fibres can be provided with a perfect groove, slit, notch and burnish. 

For problem-free coiling of woven, tufted or knotted floor coverings we offer parallel tubes up to 5200 mm in length, with or without a flap. For floor coverings based on vinyl or other plastics we offer parallel and spiral wound tubes. We also make winding cores for metal sheet, strip and wire products, with an external soft, recyclable layer of paper felt. 

Parallel or convolute wound tubes

Corex is market leader in the production of these tubes, which are characterised by excellent strength. They offer a cost-attractive solution for coiling textiles, non-woven articles and floor coverings.

Edge protectors

Our extensive range of edge protectors will optimally protect your goods. Length, wing width and thickness are customised to your precise needs. Personalisation with your company name or logo is possible. Edge protectors are sold to industrial users, logistic service operators and wholesalers in packaging goods. In the agriculture sector they stabilise and protect pallets of fruit, vegetables, flowers, poultry and meat.
