Material Grades

Standard finishes include KRAFT (Virgin pulp liner) and TEST (recycled liner) both come in brown and white. Different flute weights are available and depend on the strength of material required.

Standard flute profiles that we work with are E, B, C, BC and EB. Each of these materials are mentioned in greater detail below:


About 1.5mm thick, gives excellent crush resistance and compression strength. It provides a high quality surface to print upon and is most commonly used in smaller cartons and die-cuts applications.



About 3mm thick, probably the most common type of fluting seen in all types of applications including die-cut and regular cases it gives a good all-round performance.



About 4mm thick, it offers greater compression strength than B-flute thus giving slightly better stacking strength for lighter products. It can be prone to more crushing if used in the wrong application.



About 4.5mm thick, this is a double wall material combining the fine E-flute and B-flute. The results give an excellent performance level in both print finish and impact protection.



About 7mm thick, this is another double wall material that combines two flute profiles together, combining B-flute and C-flute, giving excellent all round performances, this material is most often seen in shipping cases where a high protection level is required.
