Corrugated board is strong and lightweight and is commonly used for packaging protection and point of sale stands – it is available in all different thicknesses. These types of boxes can be used to ship everything from vegetables to electronics. By adapting the design of a box, combining layers of corrugated or adding interior packaging, a corrugated box can be made to efficiently ship and store almost any type of product.
Corrugated Board is made from papers containing cellulose fibers, which are virgin or recycled.
