To follow is a brief description of the types of corrugated board available and examples of the applications they can be used for.
Single Wall Corrugated Board
Single wall corrugated board is made from two sheets of paper called liners’ and a corrugated inner medium called the fluting’. When the paper is constructed in this way, it gives the corrugated board significantly more strength and rigidity than that of each component layer. The construction forms a set of connected arches, which are well known for their ability to support heavy weights.
The air space between the flutes also gives a degree of insulation that gives excellent protection against temperature variations.
The fluting medium can also be varied thicknesses; from 1.1mm for ‘F’ flute board up to 4.3mm for A’ flute board.
Double Wall Corrugated Board
Double wall corrugated board has a similar construction to single wall board but has two fluting mediums instead of one, and three liners instead of two. This gives the board additional stacking strength and better puncture resistance. Double wall can still be die-cut, as with single wall, but case dimensions have to be larger to allow for the extra thickness in board.
The fluting size can be varied, depending on the application of the case. The most common type of double wall board BC’ flute which is approximately 6.2mm thick, with the thinner fluting on the outside of the case to allow for a better finish when printing.
Triple Wall Corrugated Board
Triple wall corrugated is a heavy-duty board, manufactured from three fluting mediums and four liners. The strength of this board compared to its weight, makes it an excellent material for the manufacture of heavy-duty cases for export purposes. We sell triple wall sheetboard from stock in sheet sizes of upto 2160 x 3500 for lining cases for export and other uses where strength is important, but weight needs to be kept to a minimum.
The most common form of carton is the FEFCO 0201 style, which is a normal fold over flaps, top and bottom. This style of case is the most economical style of case as it produces very little waste and requires no tooling and origination charges (unless it is printed( and can be produced directly from the corrugator.
Collapsible pallet boxes are ideal for exporting large and heavy goods where storage space is minimal and protection of your product is essential.
We have four sizes available from stock, plus a made to measure service available where needed.
