Conventional packaging is based on specifications and standards dating back 40 to 50 years.Today, there are new ways of engineering materials. Methods for adapting the packaging to the real demands of the chain and to validate box performance over time in varying conditions – a concept we call True Performance. In this Knowledge Center, we share our packaging science insights with you.

Have you considered relative humidity?
Paper for boxes is usually tested at 50% relative humidity (RH). But corrugated solutions often have to handle up to 90% RH – always in cold-chain transport. This is our explanation of the phenomenon relative humidity.
Reduce washboarding with the right liner
There is elegance in nature's shapes. Beauty and grace in wrinkles. But washboarding in corrugated materials creates an unaesthetic topography and compromises print quality.
Customisation is the future
A clever option for food contact
Packaging should protect its contents, not endanger it or the end user. In the absence of applicable food packaging legislation, this is why corrugated board made from primary fibres might be a clever option.
Tough challenges demand True Performance
To understand the true conditions that transport packaging is exposed to in the entire supply chain, we have developed a concept called True Performance. It is about validating box performance over time in varying conditions under constant load.
