Archival corrugated board
Credit: Garry Harrison

Description

An acid- and lignin-free buffered cardboard most often sold in light blue or gray colors, but also available in tan and white. Archival corrugated board is typically buffered with 3% calcium carbonate that provides a pH of 7.5-9.5. A water resistant, modified starch adhesive is used for corrugating. Fluting size is designated by a letter (A-F) that refers to the number of folds per foot.

Synonyms and Related Terms

Working Properties

Like all corrugated products, blueboard is stronger in one direction. This can be mitigated by cross-lamination sheets (PACCIN).

Forms/Sizes

Available in pre-cut sheets is sizes ranging from 8” x 10” up to 55” x 120”. Larger sizes (40" x 60" and up) requires trucking. Thicknesses range from: single-wall E-flute 1/16”, single-wall B-flute 1/8”, double-wall BB-flute ¼”.
