Plastic Cores for Winding and Converting

PBS Plastics has been manufacturing plastic cores for use in the film, tape, textile, paper, and packaging industries for over 25 years.

PBS Plastics manufactures plastic cores that:

  • Are waterproof and remain moisture-free
  • Have superior crush resistance
  • Maintain excellent surface smoothness
  • And are Environmentally-friendly because they can be reused over and over

Our products are ideal for winding and converting applications for fabrics, films, tapes, labels and many other continuous sheet and ribbon products.

We promise precise length and tight dimensional tolerance.

Inside Diameters from 0.25 in to 6 in
Lengths from 0.5 in to 40 ft

We custom cut lengths to your specifications.
Common core sizes with off-the-shelf tooling available, but not limited to:

Inside Diameter (in) Wall Thickness (in)
