About Corrugated Boxes

About Corrugated Boxes

Corrugate means “to form or shape into wrinkles or folds or into alternating ridges and grooves.” So, a corrugated box is one that has rows of small air-filled folds running the length of the material. They’re made from paperboard and typically have three layers. The liner board is the flat, thick paper that looks smooth. It makes up the two outside surfaces of the box. Inside those layers is the part with the air grooves called the medium. This is the “corrugated” part of the box. This material, also referred to as the flute, comes in several measurements. Larger flutes provide better cushioning and strength, while smaller flutes provide structural integrity and lower overall thickness. There are some varieties that only have one outside layer. Some corrugated boxes have multiple layers of medium and liner board for added protection. Simple cardboard boxes, on the other hand, are like thick paper. Shoeboxes or cereal boxes are typically made from cardboard and don’t provide nearly the strength or protection that corrugated boxes do.

Corrugated boxes offer several advantages

  1. The flutes create air space between the layers of the paperboard. This gives the box much higher strength and durability, it also provides more cushion to protect whatever is being transported in the box. The grooves also allow the box to tolerate more weight and jostling during shipping.
  2. Also, the material used to create corrugated boxes is re-usable and biodegradable, so it is better for the environment!
  3. Demand for Shipping Materials
  4. As e-commerce continues to grow, the demand for quality shipping materials grows along with it. Every online purchase needs a good shipping material, and this demand is most often met with corrugated boxes.
