Flute type and Board Grade Customisation

We are able to customise a combination of flute type and board grade to suit your individual application. The flute is the height of the corrugation, sandwiched between two liners. The most common flute type used in slotted containers is 'C'. It is approximately 4mm thick and has excellent stacking strength. Another common flute type is 'B'. It is mainly used in die-cut applications and has good burst strength properties and is approximately 3mm thick. When we combine both 'C' and 'B' Flute together we form a product known as twin cushion, otherwise recognized as double wall. This is generally about 9mm in thickness. We also produce 'E' Flute this is approximately 1.5mm in thickness. 'E' Flute can either be used on its own or together with 'B' Flute, creating a 'BE' twin cushion. It is used by itself for those applications requiring a smoother finish, as well as those applications where when combined with 'B' Flute provides a significant improvement in strength, with a minimal addition in thickness. Other flute types are 'A' and 'F' Flutes, these are not used as readily and have highly specialised applications. All materials manufactured can be produced in both a white or brown material.

Please speak to one of our sales people if you are uncertain of the material required.
