The choice of a certain kind of cardboard depends on a number of factors, like the product to be packed, the application and the desired presentation.
Boxes made of single wall cardboard are very suitable for the storage of packaged products during transport. This quality is usually recommended for the packaging of light and a couple of fragile products. For heavier products boxes made of double wall cardboard are used. For export, long-term storage or extra heavy goods threefold wall corrugated cardboard boxes make the most suitable packaging.
|Single wall||Light and non-fragile products||< 5 kg|
|Double wall||Heavy and fragile products||> 5 kg|
|Threefold||Export, long-term storage, extra heavy products||> 10 kg|
