A Glossary of
Corrugated board is a universal transport packaging material. Its higher
strength relative to its cost has made this possible.
In today's competitive environment a thorough understanding of this material
is required to get the best out of the money that is being spent on your
corrugated packaging. This is especially true when considerable amounts of
money are being spent by end-users of corrugated board. The manufacture of
corrugated board is a complex process designed to fabricate a structure that
should be capable of taking stacking loads, which has higher bending
stiffness, greater printability, and so on. In short, corrugated board is
not manufactured, it is engineered.
It is in this context that we present this glossary. It is our humble
endeavour that users of corrugated packaging find this booklet enlightening.
