The flute for every application
We use corrugated board for our e-commerce boxes. It is very resistant due to its structure, but has a low own weight. Depending on the requirements in terms of weight, the different corrugated cardboards can be combined with each other. Basically, the greater the height and the pitch of the corrugated board, the more stable the box made from it.
Pitch refers to the distance between two flutes. The smaller the pitch, the closer the respective flutes are to each other. The lower the height and the pitch of the corrugated board, the smoother the surface of the board.
The different flute types have an effect on the stability and the feel. Which flute is the right one must be decided on a case-by-case basis. For example, if you want a cardboard box with a high load-bearing capacity that is also easy to print on, a combination of two flutes is a good choice.
