2. What is the flute of corrugated cardboard?+
  • Corrugated cardboard consists of at least 3 layers of strong paper that are glued together: 2 covers, and in the middle a layer pressed into a corrugation. It is this corrugation that gives corrugated board its name - and the high rigidity it provides in the form of cardboard boxes. This has made it the most popular packaging material for shipping goods. Corrugated board is relatively cheap to produce and, thanks to its high recycling rate, it is also environmentally friendly.
    Note that in english the corrugated layer is referred to as 'flute' - in germany we use the term 'wave'.

  • Which flutes do exist?
  • A-flute (coarse flute, t: 7,9-10,0 mm, h: 4,0-5,0 mm)
  • B-flute (fine flute, t: 4,8-6,5 mm, h: 2,2-3,1 mm)
  • C-Celle (medium flute, t: 6,5-7,9 mm, h: 3,1-4,0 mm)
  • D-flute (fine flute, t: 3,5-4,8 mm, h: 1,9-2,2 mm)
  • E-flute (fine or micro flute, t: 2,6-3,5 mm, h: 1,0-1,9 mm)
  • F-flute (mini flute, t: 1,8-2,6 mm, h: 0,6-1,0 mm)
  • G-flute (mini flute, t: = 1,8 mm, h:
  • N-flute (mini flute, h = ca. 0,40 mm, dimensions not starndardised)
  • K-flute (t: > 10,0 mm, h: = 5,0 mm)


3. What does 'My' mean?+
  • 1 My or mµ stands for the order of magnitude 'micrometre', which corresponds to 1/1000 mm.
  • The material thickness of stretch films, for example, is given in My: A greater thickness corresponds to greater resilience and tear resistance.

4. Are all bubble envelopes suitable for goods and book shipments?+
  • No, you can send consignments of goods and books up to size G/7. Sizes H/8 I/9 and K/10 are no longer permitted.

5. Which bubble envelope is suitable for shipping a DVD or Bluray?+
  • We recommend size D/4 and/or E/5.

6. What is an adhesive closure?+
  • This closure replaces the alternative variant with the postal clips.
    To do this, detach the peel-off strip and stick the flap onto the transparent film which is on the back of the bubble envelope.
    This allows the bag to be resealed, which is also necessary for a consignment of goods or books at the german post office.

7. What is Flexoprint?+
  • Flexoprint or flexographic printing is a printing process and belongs to the direct letterpress printing processes. "Direct" means that the printing plate transfers the ink directly onto the substrate (such as foil). "Letter press" means that the elements to be printed (such as letters) are shown as raised areas on the plate. The flexographic printing process is versatile and can print on materials that other printing processes cannot or can only process to a limited extent.
