Made from a combination of two sheets of paper called “liners” glued to a corrugated inner medium called “fluting”, corrugated board is the most universal material on the planet, offering far more than just protection. This ingenious construction can have multiple construction types based on the huge number of different paper grades, flute sizes and profile combinations. Therefore the sizes of the products you are willing to pack is extremely important in choosing the right characteristics of the cardboard packaging: number of layers (CO3, CO3, CO5, CO7), flute size (E, B, C, B+C, B+E, A+C+A, B+A+B, etc.), type (slotted, telescope, folder, slide, etc.) and sizes (Lxlxh).
Due to its stable structure and high-quality printable surface, cardboard board also offers unsurpassed design diversity for product presentation.
Corrugated board is made from a combination of two sheets of paper called “liners” glued to a (fluted) corrugated inner medium called “fluting”. These three layers of paper are assembled to each other with the help of a starch glue in a way which gives the overall structure a better strength.
This ingenious construction forms a series of connected arches, a geometric form that is well known for its ability to support strong weights. This structure gives corrugated board considerable rigidity and resistance. The air circulating in the flutes also serves as an insulator which provides excellent protection of the packed goods against temperature variations.
There are many construction types of corrugated, each with different paper grades and flute sizes and profiles which offer many a huge number of combinations designed to create packaging with different characteristics and performances.
Made from a renewable natural resource, corrugated is a high-performance packaging material designed to pack, protect and promote products. (Source: FEFCO – What is corrugated?)
