Polymer Cores for the Paper Industry
Since its foundation in 1949, CPV has been a pioneer in the extrusion of polymer pipes and tubes that have been used for a wide range of industrial applications. We have applied this expertise to tackle a long-standing issue in the paper manufacturing and conversion industry, namely, the short lifespan and subsequent high cost of using cardboard cores.
Having carried out trials with some of the UK’s leading mills in the early 1990s – it was quickly found that using a core extruded from CPV’s specially-formulated polymer material enabled substantially more rotations than traditional cardboard alternatives.
Now soon to be entering the fourth decade since the trials began, mills using CPV’s polymer cores, are typically enjoying six-figure financial savings every year, with polymer cores often achieving payback even within the same financial year.
