Crush Prevention

Our patented radial crush strength test determines the pressure applied to a core by the film wound on it, unlike conventional flat crush testing. Radial crush testing fully represents the force and pressures placed on your cores during winding, storage and unwinding allows us to design a cost-effective and optimised core tailor-made for your application.

Our Products at Work

Hi-Radius Core

Our Hi-Radius core has a smooth, rounded edge on the unwinding end, which allows the producer to avoid using plastic caps. This solution is especially effective if our customer is spinning and texturizing the yarn in-house.
