ABOUT CORRUGATED PAPER
Corrugated paper was introduced in the year 1856 for the production of protective casing for hats (top hats). However, the product was patented in 1871 and was used mostly to protect glass bottles while transported. At the time, only the two-layer paperboard was produced.
The name corrugated paper comes from the fact that it is mostly used to make containerboard, which is mostly used to make transport boxes, and, in recent years, the increasingly used so-called display boxes and shelf-ready boxes.
Corrugated paper can be made from recycled materials (Schrenz, Fluting/Medium, Testliner, White Testliner...) or from pure cellulose (Kraft papers, SC Fluting...).
Corrugated paper is mostly used to make boards (corrugated cardboard and containerboard), but it is also used in the production of final layers of paper tubes as well as paper bags.
To make a paperboard, liners (Schrenz, Testliner and Kraft) are used for the smooth layers, whereas the medium (Fluting and SC Fluting) are used for the inner, wavy layer.
Nowadays, more and more manufacturers decide to package their products in packaging paper boxes, which are made predominantly from recycled paper. By recycling used paper, we protect our forests and play a role in environmental protection.
