Sheet Board.

The basic material for the production of corrugated board is paperboard.
There are two main types of paperboard: Kraft and Test.

a stack of kraft paper

Kraft Paper

Comes from softwood trees-the strongest form of paper and the best to print on. This is the most common outside liner for corrugated boxes.

The material is used in packaging operations for packing, wrapping individual items, bundling and void fill.

test liner papers

Test Liner Paper

This is a so-called double layer paperboard (duplex paper) made from recycle paper. Most standard cartons use recycled paper for the fluting and the inside liner.

Each sheet of liner paper is commonly composed of two layers. The finer cover layer is ideal for printing and aesthetics, and the basic layer is excellent for adhesion and strength.
