Plastic Core Plugs


Safeguard Your Product with Plastic Core Plugs

Plastic core plugs prevent cores from collapsing, while suspension plugs keep sensitive material from contacting anything else during transit or handling. We offer core plugs for paper rolls, plastic film, print media, stretch wrap, and many other products. They prevent damage to your product and lost revenue from reshipping new rolls to your customers.

Designed to work in tandem with CradlePak, our plastic core plugs protect your product inside and out while it’s being shipped and delivered.

Plastic Core Plug Sizes

Our core plug sizes range from 2 to 12 inches in diameter. Plugs also have different levels of strength, durability, and resistance to crushing.

The Benefits of our Plastic Core Plugs

Highly Durable

All our core plug products are designed to withstand the weight of what they support. We offer plugs ranging from standard-duty, heavy-duty, and crush resistant. If you’re uncertain about what the job calls for, please feel free to request samples to test.

Fully Customizable

Need your core plugs in different colors like bright blue or green? We can do that. Looking for a size we don’t currently produce? Fill out our contact form or give us a call today. We’re more than capable of engineering the custom shipping solution you need.

Cost Effective

Not only are our plastic core plugs affordable in any quantity, but they help you save money in other ways. Damaged or destroyed products are money lost— even without factoring in the cost of shipping replacements to your customers and clients.

Environmentally Friendly

At Tamarack Industries, we produce core plugs out of recycled plastics. By using recycled materials, we are using fewer resources and reducing pollution. Our core plugs can be dropped off at most local recyclers, which helps keep plastic out of landfills.

Our Products

Single Core Plugs

The main purpose of single core plugs is to protect the ends of cores from collapsing and allow for more efficient winding or unwinding of material.  Together this helps prevent damage to your product.

Double Plugs

Double core plugs allow manufacturers to stack rolls safely and efficiently on pallets. This makes it easier to store and ship rolls without damaging your product.

Pad Plugs

Ideal for use on print media, graphics, and other sensitive materials, pad plugs have a square-shaped base with a round hub to suspend rolls inside boxes to avoid impressions or markings. Pad plugs can also be used to dispense products directly from the box.

Roll Suspension Plugs

The longer length and larger flange of roll suspension plugs, paired with end boards or inserts, protects sensitive rolled products from damage by suspending them.
