Roll of corrugated cardboard
Using corrugated board as padding materialCorrugated board is a very stiff material that most people know as the material used to make corrugated cardboard boxes. However, it is also excellent as a cushioning material and for stuffing cavities within a package where otherwise punctures and damage to the goods (or even their loss) can easily occur!
Corrugated roll cardboard has advantages and disadvantages compared to other cushioning materials:
It protects very well against impact and pressure, and thanks to its stiffness offers a high level of protection against damage to the shipping box. In addition, corrugated board is recyclable to a high percentage and thus protects the environment twice: fewer raw materials are needed for its production; and: Paper or cardboard waste decomposes easily without releasing hazardous toxins into the environment.
However, the stiffness of corrugated roll board can also be a disadvantage; namely, when goods have to be protected that have a very irregular surface to which the corrugated board can only adapt poorly; or when the things to be packed are very small. In such cases, it is better to use bubble wrap!
