Our products

Gabbin produces custom paper tubes and cores for a variety of industries across Australia. All of our cores are made with FSC certified coreboard made from recycled paper (with the exception of some outer ply finishes), and are fully recyclable.

While we do keep some of our most popular lines in stock, the majority of our work is custom made to order. We have tooling to produce custom cores ranging from 12mm up to 450mm inside diameter (ID), and wall thicknesses are produced from 1.5 mm up to 13.5 mm. Our cores can be cut to lengths as short as 10mm depending on the specification.
