Sonoco-Alcore to showcase new products at the PacTek Exhibition

Sonoco-Alcore, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sonoco, a global packaging company, will exhibit a number of new products at the PacTec Exhibition, to be held from 21-24 September 2010, in the Baltic Sea Region.

Sonoco-Alcore will showcase its new products in various segments including paper, film, textiles and specialty.

Among the new products that will be featured are intellicore radio frequency identification (RFID) enabled paper cores for roll tracking in the paper industry; dricore rain-resistant paperboard cores for the agricultural industry; and firmaload carriers, environmentally responsible paperboard pallets for transporting bulk bags.

Within the agricultural film segment, Sonoco-Alcore has worked closely with silage film producers to develop the DriCore paperboard core, a recyclable high- performance, water-resistant core.

Also on display will be the industry-changing Intellicore paper roll, which utilises RFID technology to enable automatic paper roll inventory tracking for paper manufacturers from initial production all the way through to consumption. The Intellicore technology can also be utilised in the high-end film and textiles industries.

The firmaload carrier is an environmentally-friendly paperboard product that is used in the FIBC industry as a more efficient and effective means of transporting big bags.

A number of other key products will be exhibited at PacTec during the three-day exhibition, including the M-Core core, the Printex core and so on.
