Shipping tubes are manufactured from wood pulp fibers and used, among many other applications, for shipping and mailing a variety of items that are able to be rolled or to fit into a cylindrical shaped container. Ribbons of cardboard are spiral-wound with adhesives to give added strength and dried around a mandrel according to the desired diameter and length of the tube. Paper tubes are manufactured in such as way as to provide structural support across the cross section and the length of the tube.
Most shipping tubes offer superior protection from the denting, bumping and dropping that often occurs during shipping, since shipping tubes are more difficult to dent than cardboard boxes. Shipping tubes or postal tubes are usually denser, thicker and stronger than cardboard walls and in the cases where a strengthening adhesive or bonding material is used, the cylindrical shape offers more strength than a square box. Items which are commonly shipped in mailing tubes are posters, blueprints, signs, banners, paintings, artwork, pencils and small fragile items. Valuable or sensitive items such as paintings or artwork, medical supplies or confidential information may also be shipped in specially designed secure tubing. Read More…
