Corrugated Boxes: the Inside Story

Corrugated Boxes are the most commonly used Packaging Solutions for warehousing and shipment of a wide range of products. Created from corrugated paperboard, Corrugated Boxes are designed for maximum load bearing strength. The paperboard is rolled into a continuous wave-like structure and it is this configuration that imparts such strength. To get a detailed explanation see the Wikipedia Article.  The wavy sheet is glued between linerboards to form Corrugated Boxes.

The popularity of Corrugated Boxes over other Packaging Solutions can attributed to the following reasons:

  • High load bearing capacity
  • Superior dimensional stability
  • Can be easily stacked for optimum use of space
  • Reusable and can be easily recycled
  • Excellent cushioning thus ensuring safety of the packaged item
  • Cost-effective
  • Easy customization for specific requirements

Corrugated Boxes can be classified into the following:

  • Single Walled Corrugated Boxes— When the fluted medium is sandwiched between two layers of linerboard; the box is referred to as single walled.
  • Double Walled Corrugated Boxes— In double walled Corrugated Boxes, two layers of fluted medium are glued between three alternating layers of linerboard.
  • Triple Walled Corrugated Boxes— In triple walled Corrugated Boxes, there are three layers of fluted medium glued in between four layers of linerboard.

The greater the number of layers of fluted medium, the greater is the strength of the Corrugated Boxes and that's the reason why triple walled Corrugated Boxes are widely used for shipment of heavy goods. Besides, Corrugated Boxes are a cost effective means as well and that's why they are popular in several industries.
