Corrugated Cartons vs. Cardboard Boxes
Chances are, the last time you saw a Corrugated Carton, you identified it as a Cardboard Box. This is a common misconception.
Corrugated or “pleated” material is a lightweight, paper-based, three layer material constructed of two outer layers sandwiching a fluting material. In a lot of cases, the fluting material appears to be in zig-zag form, as seen below:
This design was engineered to strong and ideal for use in shipping and packaging as well as many other consumer applications. Most moving boxes and nearly all industrial shipping containers are not made of cardboard, but instead are corrugated cartons, to use the official term. A common example of the difference would be to compare a pizza box with what most 12-packs of soda or beer are packaged in. Pizza boxes tend to be corrugated so they retain form, resist moisture and insulate heat, whereas packaging for small amounts of cans can be safely transported using just cardboard.
When shipping goods via truck or the mailing service, you always want to use a corrugated box. They’ll hold up much better and provide a layer of protection from minor bumps and bruises that could otherwise damage the contents.
Cardboard or “paperboard” is also paper-based, but is a heavy duty pressed material used in the manufacturing of cereal boxes, or protective floor covering.
