Corrugated Packaging

Corrugated packaging is an extremely versatile, lightweight and effective material that can be specifically designed to suit the product it will be used for.

It is made from a combination of two sheets of paper called liners, which are glued to a corrugated inner medium called fluting. These three layers of paper are assembled in a way which gives the overall structure a better strength than that of each layer on its own. This structure gives corrugated board considerable rigidity and resistance, while the air circulating in the flutes also serves as an insulator to provide some protection against temperature variations.

Corrugated packaging offers excellent tear, tensile and burst strength to withstand transport pressures. It resists impact, drop and vibration damage while offering uniform stacking and weight distribution.

There are many types of corrugated material, each with different flute sizes and profiles:

  • Single Faced:

    The flutting is glued to one flat sheet of linerboard.

  • Single Wall

    The fluting is between two sheets of linerboard. Also known as Double Faced

  • Double Wall:

    Three sheets of linerboard with two layers of lfuting in between. Also known as Twin or double Cushion.
