1-Ply Cores: Cut costs without sacrificing performance.
Sonoco’s 1-ply corestock for tissue and towel cores was created to save our customers money while maintaining a high performance level – which is why half our customers have made the switch.
Cores made with Sonoco 1-ply corestock contain less fiber than 2-ply cores, but deliver on performance. Customers have found it strong enough to work on all types of tissue and towel converting equipment, including surface-winding converters and high-speed winding converters.
We estimate that our customers transitioning to 1-ply corestock save 10-20% on paper usage and approximately 80% on adhesive usage. It also reduces splice waste and start-up scrap. And, of course, less raw material usage means reduced shipping costs.
