General Film Cores

Sonoco Alcore® film cores are designed to specifically manage the stresses and pressures experienced during winding, handling, storage, and unwinding of various film types.

Benefits & options

Depending on the film product, different core properties are required to provide efficient winding and contribute to a good roll structure.

One of the biggest issues for the film industry is core crushing. When this occurs it causes machine downtime for you, the film producer (when a core gets stuck on a mandrel), and adds waste and cost to your customer (core crushes during storage or transportation).
