As you can imagine, corrugated fiberboard is one of the most widely used packaging materials in the world. As things like monthly subscription boxes, and cardboard virtual reality headsets gain popularity, the use of corrugated materials is continually growing.

Corrugated fiberboard is a material consisting of a fluted corrugated sheet and one or two flat liner-boards. It is made on "flute lamination machines" or "corrugators" and is used in the manufacture of shipping containers and corrugated boxes. (Wikipedia)

Glue Used to Make Corrugated Fiberboard

Typically, the glue used to make corrugated fiberboard is starch based. Starch based glues are eco-friendly as they are derived from natural carbohydrates derived from roots, tubers and seeds of higher plants such as maize, potatoes, wheat, rice and tapioca.

The major advantages of starch based glues are:

  • Extremely Economical
  • Easy Clean Up
  • Eco-friendly
  • Wide Range of Viscosities
