Strong enough to hold and bond together virtually anything, Yes its tapes! We’ve all spend 2020 with covid-19 covering our businesses, high-streets and supermarkets with social distancing tape, tapes covered all the UK that says keep 2 metres. But now the government is talking about moving the rule to 1 metre. So, it's all going to need re-taping. Some may say its crazy.  However, it's good for our tape customers and for us too, more rolls of tape and mores cores!  

We at JPT, manufacture and supply the high-quality tape cores for all kinds of tapes. JPT is the home for many leading brands of tape cores in the UK. Our tape cores go into production for PVC tapes, polythene & protection tapes, double-sided tapes and many more, in a variety of length and thickness.

At JPT, thin  but strong cardboard makes high-quality tape cores, which is 100% recyclable. We use the high strength cardboard to  tape cores, the more layers of paper determines the thickness of tape cores. Because of this, it is important to work with market leaders because tolerances on tape cores can be so critical in the retail and trade industries. Did you know JPT makes tape cores for many other cardboard tubes companies. Why? Because its our specialty.  Our skilled and expertly trained staff will make sure your tape cores are perfect, burr free and strong.  


We understand that in 80% of cases, the standard tape cores  can be 48mm or 24mm wide, and we have these in stock, ready to go in all different diameters. We have the largest core drying facility in the UK and this, along with our 24 hour production facilities means we can get those urgent tape cores out to you in hours, not days.  If you need something more bespoke, we also have thousands of master tape cores ready to cut, as we are writing this we have over 137 varieties of master tape cores tubes ready to go… to put that in perspective, its nearly 40 tonnes worth, all in an air conditioned facility which maintains their strength.

Here at JPT, our cardboard tube experts are capable of designing custom tape core solutions for a wide range of applications. As one of the leading tape core manufacturers’ in the UK, we have the experience you can be sure of when you need a reliable solution.

Besides, you can also get tape cores for printed tapes, cloth tapes, aluminium tapes and foam tapes.

We even can work with you to match your tape brand to the tape core, even when the end user has finished with the tape. We’ve all been frustrated with our recollection when we are nearly at the end of some tape that worked a treat, but you can’t remember the brand? If your tape cores were branded with an inner liner that matches your tape brand, your end users would be able to buy again and improve brand loyalty.
