Corrugated Box Flute Types

Image
Corrugated Flutes are the S shaped waves/arches of a corrugated box that makes up the board. This is called the boards corrugation. Flutes are essentially the reinforcement that make up the board. They run parallel to the depth of the container and give it its rigidity and crushing/stacking strength. As well as providing stacking strength, flutes also provide insulation that protects products from sudden temperature changes.


Generally speaking, larger flutes like A & B profile provide greater strength and cushioning, while smaller flute profiles like D & E provide better printability and foldability.
B flutes have 42-50 flutes per foot and are 1/8″ thick. They provide the second highest arch size. B flutes provide good stacking strength and crushing resistance. Ideally used for canned goods and displays.
C flutes have 39-43 flutes per foot and are 11/64″ thick. They are the medium between A flute and B flute and are very common. C flutes provide good cushioning, stacking and…

Corrugated Board Strength

Image
Board strength are all the factors that define how strong the box should be. There are a number of questions you must ask yourself before you can decide how strong a particular box should be manufactured. 

Such as:
The nature of the products being packaged
The total weight of the box
The size of the box
How the cardboard box will be stacked, stored, and transported.
Quick Pak Inc provides you with two different levels of customization options when selecting box strength. The first is the flute type and the second is using the edge crush test.

Printing on Corrugated Boxes and the Different Method

Image
Flexo Line:  The most basic type of printing on corrugated. Allows the addition of company or package content info to the surface of the box, at a relatively low cost. Graphics tend to be basic line art and text, utilizing between 1 and 3 colors.
Flexo Process:  Used for higher end graphics utilizing the 4 process colors. It provides a stronger visual impact, and enables photo quality images to be used. Because 4 color print plates are required, the total print plate costs tend to be more expensive than Flexo Line. Minimum run quantities tend to be much higher than Flexo line. 
Flood Coated:  Allows the use of a solid 100% coverage of color. Most commonly used with POP displays and packaging for retail applications. Flood coats can be applied with stock print plates, so die costs are not an expense for the client.
Label Laminate:  Achieved by gluing printed sheets to the outer surface of the corrugated material. Enables the application of a glossy process color (photo quality) ima…

History of Corrugated Boxes
The more people learn about corrugated boxes, the more they realize that there is nothing "basic" about them. With every box made up of three sheets of paper, the combinations are limitless. But don't worry... that is what we are here for. We've tried to make this page informative with easy to digest information that will get you up to speed on the basics of corrugated cardboard.
Cardboard Box Types

Steel Strapping and the Price Increases

Image
Steel reinforcement bars are about as unglamorous an industrial product as one can get. Their rally in China this week is anything but, with a surge to the highest since 2014 that’s helping to boost iron ore.
Rebar futures jumped for the fourth straight day on the Shanghai Futures Exchange, advancing 6.1 percent to 2,750 yuan ($424) a metric ton. The product that’s used to strengthen concrete is 20 percent higher this week, and up 54 percent in 2016. Iron ore futures in Dalian rose to the highest in more than a year as benchmark Metal Bulletin Ltd. prices powered above $70 for the first time since January 2015.
“You’ve got a tight market, you’ve got momentum, and you’ve got this fundamental driver for steel in the government boosting the infrastructure and housing side of things,” said Chris Weston, chief market strategist at IG Ltd. in Melbourne. “The rebar price is really leading the iron ore price at the moment.”
The rallies in steel and iron ore in 2016 are in contrast to last y…

Cold Temperature Packaging.

Image
Here in Florida, spring has now given way to summer, which is great news for the air conditioning industry, but not so great for people ordering chocolates.


This time of year is a challenge for all shippers of temperature-sensitive products. A package containing insulin, which must be protected from excessive temperatures, will remain unspoiled longer on a Minneapolis doorstep at 65 degrees Fahrenheit than on a Phoenix doorstep in 115 degrees.
Temperature-sensitive packaging can help ensure the contents arrive in optimal condition in the designated temperature range. Avoiding spoilage is not, however, only about the package itself; it's also about the ambient temperatures in the environment that the package will pass through.
For example, a package traveling via ground from Florida to Southern California in August will encounter different temperatures than one traveling from Massachusetts to Wisconsin in January, so it's important to design packaging that not only suits the prod…

LyondellBasell Declares


LyondellBasell declared force majeure this week on linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) made at two plants in Texas and Illinois, according to a letter the producer sent to customers on Wednesday. The letter, dated 18 May, said the declaration stemmed from “unexpected mechanical difficulties in our PE production plants in LaPorte, Texas, and Morris, Illinois.”
Trade News May 2016
Four of five major commodity resins saw North America price increases take hold in April.

Polyethylene prices for April rose by an average of 4 cents per pound as oil prices recovered from less than $38 per barrel early in the month to around $45.

Oil is a global price setter for PE, although natural gas is the most common PE feedstock in North America.
