About Sonoco tape cores:
Sonoco is the leading provider of cores to adhesive tape manufacturers, producing everything from very small cores to master rolls. We manufacture tape cores using proprietary adhesives and our own high-quality paper, and we test our cores repeatedly for dimensional consistency and strength. Tape producers rely on our cores for packaging polypropylene, PVC, paper, masking and many other varieties of tape.

Understanding the unique needs of tape producers and converters, we offer inside and outside printing on tape cores, and tight length tolerances for precision gang winding. Our proprietary clean-release core eliminates the loss of tape due to it sticking to the core at the end of the roll, making the entire roll of tape usable.
