Dricore NG

The new DricoreNG water-resistant paper core for the agricultural film industry has the appearance of a traditional paper core, however, it maintains all of the same critical performance characteristics as the original Dricore product.

QS Series

These high-performance film cores are specifically engineered to meet the increasing demands of packaging highly sensitive films and foils, offering maximum dimensional stability, straightness and smoothness.

Radial Core

Sonoco Alcore® designed the Radial Crush testing method to simulate the deformations occurring when elastic materials are wound on a core. Cores designed using Radial Crush Technology allow producers to reduce costs and increase productivity by using the right core for the right application.

General Film Cores

We provide a variety of reliable, durable general film cores to meet the unique needs of plastic film producers. By utilising our patented Radial Crush technology we deliver a core that is optimised for both performance and cost.

Case Study

Radial Strength Optimisation

Our customer, a protective film producer, was experiencing core crushing because the core they were using was not optimised for radial strength.

After field testing, our solution was to use our patented radial tester to ensure we achieved the required radial strength. As a result, our customer saved €300,000 after optimising their cores.


We provide a number of film core services to industry.
