More than 90 % of all corrugated boxes are manufactured from this type of board.
The most popular corrugation material used for custom boxes.
Available in a wide range of board strengths, from 175 lb. through 350 lb. test.

Double-Wall Corrugated Cardboard (b+c flute)

This grade is used for heavy applications, particularly in packaging for export.

Double wall corrugated board should be used when stronger boxes and extra padding are needed.
