Double E launches “tissue industry’s lightest core”

Double E has launched what is calling the tissue industry’s lightest core plug.

The company said the carbon fibre-based, ultra-light core plug weighs at least one third less than current models.

It aims to help the converting industry by enhancing productivity and safety and builds upon Double E’s industry leadership in applying carbon fibre technology to the converting products market.

Capitalising on carbon fibre’s weight to strength ratio, the company engineered the plug’s critical components using advanced composites that dramatically lower the weight of the core plug while assuring its performance integrity.

Double E has introduced what it said is the lowest weight core plug ever available to the tissue industry.

Steve Marsh, Double E’s product manager for its Core Plug product line, said: “Multiple customers approached Double E seeking to further reduce the weight of our already lightweight core plugs.

“We started by applying our carbon fibre knowledge and developed a line of significantly lighter core plugs using a number of advanced materials, attaining our twin goals of significantly decreasing the weight while assuring delivering optimal structural integrity.

“These core plugs went through rigorous testing both in-house and live in the field, delivering our customers the strength and durability they need in their core plugs.”
