5 Main Uses of Plastic Reels

5 Main Uses of Plastic Reels

The plastic reels made at Anderson Forest Products are lightweight and durable packing alternative to wooden and plywood reels. The top five industries that use plastic reels are:

  • Industrial and residential wire manufacturers
  • Low-voltage outdoor wire manufacturers
  • Telecommunications manufacturers
  • Ribbon and tape manufacturers
  • Monofilament manufacturers

The plastic reels we produce consist of plastic flanges and either paper or plastic cores. The flange diameter can range from 6 ½” to 24”. The spiral-wound paper cores we use are produced in-house, so we can make sure the wall thickness is adequate for the customers’ needs. We have the capacity to produce paper cores from 1.5” to 14” in diameter with wall thickness from 1/10” to 5/8”. The high quality of these paper tubes makes our plastic reels a strong but lightweight alternative to wooden or plywood reels.
