Paper cores: where would we be without them? Our kitchen rolls will unfurl, our postal tubes will go down the proverbial. As for our carpets, they would be ready to roll before we are. Everything will be messy or fidgety.

We at Romiley Board Mill recognise the supporting role of paper cores. Their strengths. Their flexibility. Also the lengths they go to, to keep your aluminium foil or cling film in place. They go well with:

  • Toilet tissue and kitchen towels;
  • Cling film, food bags, and aluminium foil;
  • Cotton reels, wire, string, twine;
  • Postal tubes and carpet rolls.

We manufacture two kinds of paper cores: convolute and spiral cores. For toilet tissue, aluminium foil, and food bags, spiral cores are used. Where extra strength is required, convolute cores are used. They come into their own for the carriage of carpets and other floor coverings.

Convolute cores are made of a single piece of cardboard, rolled from end to end. Spiral cores are wound in spiral form. They are more lightweight owing to their construction. Inner core can also be added to both convolute and spiral cores – designed to add extra protection, or your company’s logo.
