APPLETON, Wis. — Laminations®, part of Great Northern Corporation’s Specialty Group, has introduced a cost-effective, lightweight product for keeping the edges of rolled products clean and free from abrasions, rips, wrinkles and smudges.

FlexRoll® has evenly spaced notches that enable its triangular fingers to bend quickly and easily around the edges of rolled and contoured products, acting as a barrier against damage during shipping, storage and handling. Ideal for converters of paper and other roll stock materials where lighter-weight protection is appropriate, FlexRoll acts as a buffer that separates product from the walls and floors of trucks and warehouses. It also creates a barrier between the edges of stacked products.

Available in calipers of .040 and .050 inches, FlexRoll comes in rolls that are 250 feet long and is packaged two rolls per box. Custom sizes also are available.

“FlexRoll is recyclable, environmentally friendly and compatible with the packaging industry’s increasing utilization of sustainable practices and materials,” said Gary Hietpas, Laminations
Vice President Marketing and Sales. “FlexRoll uses minimal material to protect edges and is compatible with other forms of roll packaging such as headers, banding and stretch wrapping.”
