Protective Packaging: Cornerboard Must-Know Guide to Packaging

Why Use Cornerboard/Angleboard

Cornerboard Cornerboard protective packaging is the most ideal way to protect your products during storage or shipment. Cornerboard packaging protects palletized freight from dents, strapping, stretch film, and other shipping and handling damage. Cornerboards can be used to protect edges of lumber, produce, metal parts, and other building materials. Cornerboards can also be used to stabilize roll stock. The use of cornerboard improves stack strength and worldwide export capabilities.

Protective Packaging Solutions

Standard cornerboard and angleboard are available in a wide variety of sizes, widths, and are available for custom printing. When you need to protect your packages in any weather conditions, cornerboards are a perfect choice due to their moisture resistant properties.

Guidelines for down-gauging

Water-resistant Formaboard is made from a patented manufacturing process using plies of paper that are heat-bonded and formed into rigid right angles to create an exceptionally strong and dense product. This lightweight package protector is especially designed for unitization, and provides extra protection from strapping and stretch film. Formaboard is a cost effective, high performance product especially used for unitization, stacking, and/or protection from strapping or stretch film. Formaboard has a unique patented manufacturing process constructed of high strength plies of paper that are heat-bonded and formed into rigid right angles of exceptional strength. Formaboard provides increased strength through its material composition which allows for a reduction of caliper and/or leg lengths from the standard open-edge product, without sacrificing performance.

StackMaster’s unique design builds in exceptional strength, enabling it to resist the highest levels of compression of any edge protector product on the market. This allows you to utilize your warehouse space more efficiently by stacking loads higher than ever before.

Exceptional Strength: In addition to stacking loads higher, StackMaster enables you to down gauge to a thinner caliper board and/or leg length without sacrificing load security.

Economical: Because StackMaster is thinner than other edge protectors of comparable strength, we are able to pack more pieces per pallet. This reduces the number of pallets you order, lowers your freight costs and minimizes your warehousing requirements.
