A wide range of structures

The walls of corrugated containers (corrugated boxes, corrugated cases) come in a range of basic structures.

The 2 components are always linerboard and corrugating medium. They are collectively called containerboard (corrugated container materials, CCM; fiberboard. cf: solid fiberboard, and 3 types of reconstituted wood board fiberboard).

Types of corrugated board:

  • Single face corrugated board.
  • Single wall (double face) board.
  • Double wall (double-double face) board.
  • Triple wall board, which is the double wall configuration plus a further layer of corrugating medium and then linerboard on 1 side.
