Van Antwerpen Cartonnage

Van Antwerpen Cartonnage

Signode's, Van Antwerpen Cartonnage products were initially sold in 1954 in the form of bitumen tubes. After bitumen was no longer permitted, water-resistant tubes and cores were made from thickly coated materials for certain industrial customers. Signode's current Van Antwerpen Cartonnage product line includes a number of different products using one production method, which is a continuous process of sealing strips of paper or cardboard together. The Van Antwerpen Cartonnage product range consists of various types of round cartons and corner profiles. These are delivered on order to industrial or private customers.

V.A.C Wrapping Cores

Cores and Stretch Film

Cores have been widely used for many years as a wrapping core for stretch wrapping film. Film winding companies opt for the core because it allows a higher winding speed on their machines. Due to the special sealing process, Signode's Van Antwerpen Cartonnage cores have a higher strength than regular glued cores. The core is proven within tape converters due to sealing procedure facilitating less dust during the cutting process.
