Sweet summertime – ahh… the season that (most) people look forward to. Sun, warm temperatures, vacations, break from school, etc. But the heat and humidity that summer brings can be a game changer when it comes to paper products.
As the temperature in the air increases, so does its ability to retain moisture. When humidity levels increase, the fibers in the paper draw in moisture very quickly, resulting in expansion. For example, think about the doors in your house and how they seem to stick during the summertime. That’s because of materials expanding due to the humidity. The same happens with paper tubes and cores.
During summertime conditions, paper tubes and cores manufactured in high humidity can shrink drastically if an end-user puts them into an air-conditioned room with extremely low humidity. Humidity can weaken the tubes and cores which will then cause them to fail. If used in a timely manner, less moisture will affect the product. Paper tubes and cores should not be stored near any type of heating or cooling unit, in an air stream of heated or cooled air or in the path of a humidifying stream of air. Knowing your storage environment is very critical.
Understanding how moisture and humidity affects paper tubes and cores is imperative for end-users as they are looking for the products to have the best appearance and performance. To ensure optimum performance, control the relative humidity (R.H.) levels and temperature in the processing and storage environments.
Textiles – they are all around us. Maybe you’ve never heard that specific term being used but the clothing you are currently wearing, the canopy you sit under while enjoying a nice dinner outside by the river, the curtains hanging in your living room, the cloth interior seats in your car, protective clothing… they are all a part of the textile industry.
So, what exactly is it? A textile is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibers, weaved or knitted together. Textiles are made from many materials including animal, plant, mineral and synthetic – all of which are made in various strengths and degrees of durability, depending on the industry the material is serving. For example, fabric is a huge part of our lives and without it, we wouldn’t have our basic, necessary items that we depend on day in and day out.
The extensive use of paper cores in the textile industry is a driving factor in the growing demand for more products to be produced. At Yazoo, we recognize just how important our process is in the textile industry as material will need to be wound onto a core. Having the correct tools for your respective jobs is imperative to the success of your end-product and bottom line. Our 100% recycled paper cores are a key component when it comes to rewinding material, which is a process that demands a consistent outside diameter to ensure the material winds evenly. In our manufacturing process, we produce paper cores with the strength and consistency that provides the best ROI in your converting operations. Yazoo’s paper cores are designed to fit your specifications for maximum strength to ensure optimum performance, reduce downtime and increase productivity.
We offer a wide variety of value-added, custom capabilities such as colored parchments, embossed outer wraps and core notching (just to name a few) that many of our customers in the textile industry are utilizing; which is helping them stay ahead of their competition. We also offer 110+ sizes of paper cores in-stock and ready to ship the same day if the order is placed by 4pm EST. Our speed to market and high-quality products are just two of the many reasons why we remain the industry leader for paper tubes and cores.
