Cardboard and paper packaging
Paper wrappers are the most commonly used packaging materials. Paper is a customisable material which can be painted, impregnated or layered to obtain different forms of packaging materials from paper bags and sacks to paper packaging resistant to water, steam, gas, fats, oils, and organic solvents.
Corrugated cardboard has a 75% share of the packaging production owing to its positive qualities. Packaging consisting of several alternating layers of corrugated and smooth paper is a highly adaptable, environmentally and economically advantageous packaging option for products of various sizes and kinds.
Cardboard and paper packaging – the types and use
Paper having a basic weight of 150 g/m, suitable for envelopes of different formats and dimensions, is used for the packaging of printed materials, forms or other flat and light objects.
Cardboard weighing up to 180-250 g/m is suitable for cardboard boxes and cardboard corners to fix, protect and cover industrial products, agricultural products, textiles, foodstuffs, consumer goods or small gifts.
Cardboard, weighing over 250 g/m – 2-5-layer corrugated cardboard is ideal for boxes or support filling material in boxes. Cardboard can be readily used to pack electronics, furniture, consumer goods as well as larger industrial products.
