core plugs

To avoid damage to winding cores, it is always advisable to insert appropriate core plugs that offer ideal protection during both in-company and external transport. Core plugs made of Tectan® consist of paper and polyethylene. This mixture pro-
duces a material that is impact resistant and rigid, and which is ideal for stabilizing winding cores. Tectan® core plugs have now been successfully deployed in the paper industry for
more than ten years.

By using paper fibers (secondary resources) that come from 100% FSC-accredited plantations, fossil resources such as crude oil can be saved and substituted by renewable resources. During the manufacture of products made of Tectan® we ensure there is no negative ecological impact on the air, soil or water.

Tectan® products are suitable for multiple uses and can be 100% recycled again and used to create new products.
