As part of its efforts to service the Converting Industry by enhancing productivity and safety, Double E recently introduced its new Carbon Fiber-based Ultra-Light Core Plug. This Ultra-Light Core Plug builds upon Double E’s industry leadership in applying carbon fiber technology to the converting products market.

In doing so, Double E has introduced the lowest weight core plug ever available to the Tissue Industry.

"Multiple customers approached Double E seeking to further reduce the weight of our already lightweight core plugs. We started by applying our carbon fiber 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," said Steve Marsh, Double E’s product manager for its Core Plug product line.
