Cardboard Boxes single wall from 300 mm length
Folding cartons made of single corrugated board from 300 mm length
Corrugated board is actually nothing but thick paper, which is processed into a rigid, resilient board by a special folding and gluing process. Corrugated board is ideally suited for packaging purposes: it is light, stable, inexpensive and practically 100% recyclable. In most cases, it is already made from recycled paper; hence the typical brownish colour. You only have to be careful with moisture, e.g. when it rains; if that is a problem, however, you can at least make the package rainproof and dirt-proof with stretch film, for example.
Buying the right corrugated cardboard box is very easy if you know the dimensions of the item to be shipped and of course the weight: Single-wall corrugated cardboard (2 cover layers and one layer of B- or C-shaped flutes) in the usual parcel size, as here from 300 mm length, should not be loaded much higher than 10-15 kg; in private parcel shipping, the usual weight limit for aHermes or DHL parcel is 10 kg. More is possible, but will then become very expensive very quickly.
