Corrugated Cardboard Types

Corrugated Cardboard Types

Wave Type Profile Wave Height (mm.) Wave length (mm.)
C 3,2 – 4,0 6,8 – 8,0

» Good carrier.
» Good results in printing.
» It’s use is becoming more widespread.


 

Wave Type Profile Wave Height (mm.) Wave length (mm.)
B 2,2 – 3,0 5,5 – 8,5

» Due to the small wall thickness, it is not strong enough to carry the vertical loads.
» The surface is more resistant to crushing due to its more frequent waves.
» Good results in printing
» The most common wave type of use


Wave Type Profile Wave Height (mm.) Wave length (mm.)
E 1,0 – 1,8 3,0 – 3,5

» Due to the high number of grooves on the surface, the surface crush strength is the highest with respect to the other wave types.
» Due to its lightness, it can be used successfully instead of cardboard packages.
» When E wave is combined with another wave, perfect packaging occurs.
» It is not used as carrying packaging on its own.
» It is laminated to offset carton and used as consumer packaging.
