MATERIAL AND FORMATS

1Corrugated cardboard

Technically, corrugated cardboard is a sandwich composed of two flat cardboard sheets and one or more sheets of corrugated cardboard held together by natural glues derived from corn starch or potato starch. If there are two or more corrugated cardboard sheets, another flat cardboard sheet called a stretched central sheet is placed between them. In such case it is called corrugated cardboard with a single, double wave etc. Furthermore, since the height of the wave can vary from 1.5 mm to 5 mm, we can have different combinations for a final thicknesses of cardboard between 1.5 to 15 mm.

2Read the initials of the cardboard

For example, cardboard with KSTSK 56265 BC has the following characteristics:

Kraft paper outer cover, class 5

First wave Semi-chemical B wave paper, class 6

Central sheet Test-liner, class 2

Second wave Semi-chemical C wave paper, class 6

Kraft paper inside cover, class 5

3Weights of corrugated cardboard

class 2: g/mq 125

class 3: g/mq 150

class 4: g/mq 175

class 5: g/mq 200

class 6: g/mq 225

class 8: g/mq 275

class 9: g/mq 300

class 02: g/mq 337

class 04: g/mq 400

class 06: g/mq 440

4Types of corrugated cardboard

Single wave - It creates cardboard with a thickness between 1.5 and 4 millimeters. The number of waves contained in a linear meter provides good resistance to compression. However, being less thick, it does not enhance resistance to vertical compression. Among these types of cardboard there is the microwave, which has excellent print quality because of the high number of waves per linear meter that creates the perfect flatness of the cover. Competitive with compact cardboard in the production of cases or similar items.

Double wave - It creates cardboard with a thickness of more than 4.5 mm with excellent resistance to vertical compression of the packaging and increasing shock absorbing power. Compared to other types of wave, the flat crush resistance is lower. It is an excellent compromise for the best competitive price. It provides good print quality and provides flat and vertical crush resistance.

Triple and alveolar wave - Complex cardboard composed of a thickness greater than 14 mm. It is used for exceptionally heavy materials, heavy loads and long storage times.
