Currently, the production of packaging paper, cardboard and corrugated board is on the upswing due to the fact that these materials are among the most economical and environmentally friendly. Today, with rapidly developing branding is paid attention not only to quality of goods, but also to the quality of packaging and its design, environmental friendliness, the demand for high-quality consumer and transport packaging among manufacturers is growing. The peculiarity and the importance of this segment of the packaging industry are still in the fact that the broad scope of these materials.

Companies operating at the packaging market noted an increase in demand for paper and cardboard packaging.

Most common are 2, 3 and 5-layer corrugated cardboard used for shipping container and paperboard mikrocorrugated - for the consumer packaging.


Double-layer Three-layer Five-layer

There are the following types of characteristics of corrugated cardboard (wave height):

  • Profile of «F», thickness from 0,7 to 0,9 мм
  • Profile of «Е», thickness from 1,6 to 1,8 mm
  • Profile of «В», thickness from 2,7 to 3,0 mm
  • Profile of «С», thickness from 3,7 to 4,0 mm
  • Profile of «A», thickness from 4,0 to 6,0 mm
  • Profile of «E/В», thickness from 4,0 to 4,6 mm
  • Profile of «Е/C», thickness from 5,2 to 5,5 mm
  • Profile of «B/С», thickness from 6,5 to 7,0 mm

From year to year the volume of production in major consuming sectors: beer, soft drinks, confectionery, dairy products, pasta, meat and meat products, oil and fat products, cosmetics and perfumes. The most promising market for food packaging. This is one of the most difficult markets, as food manufacturers make high demands for safety and quality packaging. But despite the difficulties, food packaging market is more developed and therefore highly competitive. For food use various types of containers - a glass jar and bottle, tin and aluminum cans, packing of the polymer, cardboard and paper. More than half of the market is made of paper and cardboard packaging.

Good potential for growth has complex packaging configurations with multi-color printing gamut, as well as cardboard and corrugated boxes produced using waste paper raw materials.

The history of corrugated cardboard

Packaging made of corrugated cardboard is so firmly established in our lives that it seems it has existed always. However, the corrugated packaging is used as little more than a hundred years. The idea of using cardboard as packing in 1871 suggested that Albert Johnson from New York. The decision was more necessary than spontaneous, because it was necessary to protect the goods (especially glass bottles) from all sorts of mechanical effects.

The first patent on the use of corrugated cardboard packaging was registered in December 1871. Ten years have passed, and in 1881 the first mechanically driven machine saw the light, which not only produced corrugated board, and roll it up into rolls.

The original manufacturer of equipment for the production of corrugated cardboard produced in small workshops, and later engaged in the production of these machine-building enterprises of various companies. In the twentieth century, the production of corrugated cardboard spread throughout the world.

Initially, the width of corrugated cardboard was 660 mm, and then increased to the size of 850-1000 mm. Cardboard boxes become smaller and there was no need to use the machine with the high cost of labor. Slots made with circular saws.

Along with the improvement of corrugated board and packaging, there were improved corrugating machines. The result of this improvement was the creation of corrugating apparatus, which included all the processes from unwinding rolls of paper and paperboard, corrugated board to obtain a two-layer coils and 3 -, 5 -, 7-layer sheets. There increased also the rate of corrugation. In 1905, the rate of corrugation was 3 m / min, in 1920 it has accounted for 20-25 meters, and in 1930 the rate had already reached a corrugation of 100 meters per minute. Corrugating speed on modern vehicles is 200 meters per minute.

Corrugated board is considered today to be the most advantageous material for packaging. Also, corrugated packaging is one of the most environmentally friendly packaging in the world.
