The science of strength: an evolution in packaging

Corrugated board was an innovation already when it first appeared on the market. We now offer an evolution – one of the world’s strongest and most reliable fluting.

Over the years, one of the biggest challenges in the packaging industry has been to optimise the amount of paper used per box, yet increase the level of protection of the product. At Billerud, we have managed to do just that. By constantly challenging ourselves, we have made a strong product even stronger; achieving more with less. Today we manufacture one of the world’s strongest and most efficient fluting – by using less material for increased protection. A development that helps reduce transport costs and minimises losses in the supply chain. In other words, lighter and stronger packaging with less waste. An evolution of both material and packaging solutions.

The single most important end-use for corrugated board is transport packaging for a wide range of products. Thanks to continuous construction improvements, delicate items like fruit and vegetables can be transported with minimal damage.

Corrugated board is also used to package and protect heavy and expensive products like tools, electronic equipment and spare parts in the automotive industry.

Corrugated board has even started to replace styrofoam and plastic filling in the packing and transport of fragile objects. And with renewable, recyclable and biodegradable material the packaging can be recycled and easily used again … and again.
