It is layer upon layer of post-consumer paper glued together to make a super-dense, strong cardboard sleeve or core. These cardboard tubes were originally wrapped with an oil-absorbent material used for industrial recycling purposes. After the material is pulled off, these tubes remain in untouched, pristine condition.
These cardboard cores are 4" I.D. and 4.5" O.D. They come in one length (3'). Please note these are sold in quantities of 80, bundled on a pallet and ready to ship.
No, this raw cardboard material is not safe to leave out in the elements. However, many people have coated the cardboard tubes with a polyurethane sealant and this helps them withstand the natural environment better.
These reclaimed cardboard tubes are in essentially new condition since they were only used for transporting vinyl material. They may have minor scuffs or marks from the printing machine & transport. All reclaimed materials are sold "As Is" with no express or implied warranty. Please read product descriptions before purchase as all sales are final.
We are located in Salt Lake City, Utah, at 36 West Fayette Ave, Unit 1 (970 South, between Main and West Temple). Please visit us Mondays through Fridays from 9am to 6pm.
We prefer cash but also accept debit/check cards, and all major credit cards. Please call about discounts on volume purchases and to ensure inventory. Local sales tax will be applied.
Your creativity is the only limit! Here are some suggestions: ship fragile items inside like posters, golf clubs or fly fishing rods; cut them short and stack to make an organizer's dream wall; use for small structural projects like furniture, buildings, and crafts; put around sensitive and delicate items as a bumper or protector; use as rollers for heavy items; cover a wall with them for a distinctive 3-D look; and more!

STRONGER – Made extra thick for heavy duty applications means you get much more for less
