Cardboard boxes

Cardboard is a lightweight but strong paper-based packaging material. It can be easily cut and manipulated to create custom shapes and structures. These properties make it ideal for personalized packaging. It is made by turning fibrous material from wood or recycled waste paper into pulp, which is then bleached. Cardboard packaging is available in a variety of grades, each suitable for different packaging requirements.

 

SBS (or solid bleached sulfate) paperboard can be used for packaging cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, milk and juice, toiletries, frozen foods, and more. Select Kraft or CUK (Coated Unbleached Kraft) board packaging is suitable for those who prefer the natural and environmentally friendly look of recycled paper for similar packaging applications. Kraft paper is generally considered to be less resistant to moisture and therefore less suitable for food-related products or frozen food packaging. With the right combination of design options, cardboard packaging can look high-end without the need for high-end pricing. Shop for our customized packaging boxes, welcome to contact us today or request a quote.

Corrugated cardboard


Corrugated boxes simply refer to what is commonly known as cardboard. Many people may think of corrugated cardboard as 'cardboard' because it produces large shipping boxes, shoe boxes, and storage boxes. What many people don't realize is that there are different types of corrugated boxes, depending on the durability and strength of the box. However, it is easy to identify a certain corrugated material. How do you identify the material? By its corrugated medium (also known as fluting). Identifying corrugated material is easy. It consists of 3 layers of paper, an outer liner, an inner liner, and a corrugated medium (also known as a corrugated board). The corrugated medium gives it its strength and stiffness.

 

The main raw material used to manufacture corrugated boards is mostly recycled paper, manufactured by large, high-precision machines called corrugators. These types of cardboard can be reused and recycled again and again as a source of pulp fibers. There are different types of corrugated boards, single-sided, double-sided (single-walled), double-walled and triple walled. They can be used to make packaging with different characteristics, properties, and strengths. The cardboard is cut and folded into different sizes and shapes to become corrugated packaging. Other applications for corrugated board packaging include retail packaging, pizza takeaway boxes, small consumer goods packaging, etc.
