Corrugated cardboard is a product that is obtained by placing the layer, which has one or more corrugations, between flat layers.
A standard single wave cardboard has three basic sections;
- As the outer paper, high quality liner, which constitutes the printing surface, is used.
- As the intermediate corrugation paper, fluting paper, which generally takes the corrugated form when heated and which has solid structure that keeps this form when it is cooled, is used.
- The inner paper does not have much importance in terms of aesthetics since it is not visible on the interior surface.This can be craft liner, testliner or fluting paper according to the required strength.
Double wave and triple wave corrugated cardboards are also manufactured as well as the single wave corrugated cardboard.
The types of corrugated cardboards vary according to their number of layers as well as according to the structure of the waves.
The boxes, which are formed from corrugated cardboard, are the packaging means that are the most wide spread and they are the packaging that keep, carry and help for the sale of the product that is placed inside.
