Corrugated boxes are widely used in the transport packaging world. The corrugated industry has a strong focus on R&D attempting to optimize strength vs. weight ratio.  Corrugated boxes are offered in many ways, from standard box sizes and styles to completely customizable and is one of the only packaging materials that can be cut and folded to various shapes and sizes. Arguably one of the most dynamic packaging solutions available corrugated offers many benefits to consumers.

To give the corrugated boxes their unique characteristics, some key features need to be taken into consideration including design, paper quality and type of flute.

Type Height Density (single wall)
F-flute (Micro)  0.8 mm   350 - 500 gr/m2
E-flute (Mini)    1.2 mm 380 - 600 gr/m2
B-flute (Fine)   2.4 mm     380 - 630 gr/m2
C-flute (Coarse)   3.6 mm 400 - 700 gr/m2

Double Wall CorrugatedDouble Wall Boxes

  • Double wall boxes are made out of two facings, two corrugated mediums and an inner liner in between to give five papers in total.
  • The most common type is BC, which consists of one B-flute and one C-flute.

Triple-Wall CorrugatedTriple Wall Boxes

  • To obtain an even stronger box, seven layers of paper can be used where three layers are flutes.
  • These triple wall boxes are named according to the same system as double wall for example BCB.

Slotted Corrugated BoxesSlotted Boxes

  • The slotted boxes can often be found as double folded sheets of corrugated board, which fold simply into a four-sided box.
  • The top flaps meet in the centre and can be taped, glued or stapled to close.

Die-cut Corrugated BoxesDie-Cut Boxes

  • By die-cut technique, special sizes and a high degree of customisation can be achieved.
  • This process ensures a higher degree of accuracy in size and consistency and allows for almost any shape or style of box to be manufactured.

Corrugated EdgeboardsEdgeboards

  • Edgeboard consists of several laminated layers of strong paperboard.
  • High quality reusable carton board is glued together under high pressure to produce a highly, stable, profile element.
