Corrugated cardboard is one of the most reliable ways of packaging. This material is made using natural adhesive to bond accordion-like sheet of cardboard between two plain sheets of thicker paper. Corrugated cardboard is made from recycled materials; however, it does not affect the material’s durability and encourages companies to adopt environmentally responsible practices instead.
Corrugated cardboard sheets
Corrugated cardboard is used to make strong yet lightweight packaging, storage, and safe transportation solutions, boxes, or partitions for different types of products. Manufacturers often advance material’s strength by gluing more layers of cardboard together, thus ranging from 3 layers to 5 layers, but some packaging situations may only need 2 ply cardboard. The durability of corrugated cardboard depends on its thickness; despite that, suppliers can make material ranging from as little as 0,5 mm (f flute) to a bit stronger product measuring 3 mm (b flute), 4 mm (c flute), and 5 mm (a flute). As corrugated cardboard is a long-lasting and durable material that does not change its properties and maintain solidity throughout the time, it can be considered as an alternative for honeycomb cardboard products, fiberboard, and other artificial materials such as polystyrene.
No cutting forms are needed for the production of examples or small circulations, so the prices of different packaging solutions are truly affordable. CNC machinery allows us to produce quality packaging in less time; therefore, they are used to produce smaller quantities. Corrugated cardboard boxes can be made with either direct print on cardboard or from laminated cardboard with print. Having a large cutting machine area (1,8 m x 2,5 m), we can produce particularly big packages, boxes, and large quantities of products – for that reason we compete with other manufacturers.
Corrugated cardboard boxes
As our capabilities do not interfere with implementing innovative packaging ideas, we can produce boxes of custom dimensions to help protect the packed products during transportation. The surface of the corrugated cardboard box protects the good from external damage by reducing impact force; it also provides protection from humidity, dust, and other environmental impacts. Even though suppliers normally offer 4×8 corrugated cardboard sheets, this material is used widely for various packaging solutions and products – displays, furniture, crafts, trays, inserts, dividers, and all around the house. The least thick material can be used for packing light shipments; whereas, double wall cardboard is often used for carrying out heavy-duty orders, making pallets, and edge protectors, or boxes for transporting harmful products.
