Packaging Excellence of Corrugated Cardboard Boxes

29 January 2024

In the realm of packaging solutions, cardboard boxes have long been a stalwart choice, offering versatility in applications ranging from packing and storing to transporting and presenting.


Corrugated vs. Cardboard: Unveiling the Differences 

While the terms "cardboard" and "corrugated cardboard" may be used interchangeably, they signify distinct structures and purposes. A cardboard carton is made of thick paper stock or heavy paper-pulp, suitable for smaller containers and product packaging. However, it provides minimal protection and often requires additional materials like bubble wrap for secure shipping. 

On the other hand, corrugated cartons consist of multiple layers, including an inside liner, an outside liner, and a fluted medium between them. This design makes corrugated resilient and lightweight. Choosing corrugated over traditional cardboard ensures a higher level of assurance that your products will reach their destination in pristine condition.  

Decoding Corrugated Cardboard: A Marvel of Packaging Engineering 

Corrugated cardboard, the unsung hero of packaging, is composed of a layered, arched paper created through a process known as "fluting." This involves sandwiching a stiff, fluted layer of paper between two outer layers. The thickness of corrugated cardboard can range from a single sheet at 0.25 mm to a heavy-duty double wall board at 7.9 mm thick. 

The unique properties of corrugated cardboard make it an ideal material for packaging. Its rigidity can support heavy weight and pressure from stacked boxes during shipping, while its layers provide flexibility when wrapping individual items.  

The Strength-to-Weight Marvel: Why Choose Corrugated 

Corrugated boxes boast a remarkable strength-to-weight ratio, making them the go-to solution for shipping or transporting medium-sized and large items. Widely used in product shipping and transport, corrugated boxes accommodate everything from medium-sized goods to large household appliances. With various fluting designs and flute profiles, corrugated cardboard boxes offer versatility in sizes, thicknesses, and load capacities, catering to diverse packaging needs. Corrugated cartons provide a stable cushion for any product, ensuring safety during long-distance transportation, shipping, and handling.
