Archival corrugated board

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

acid-free corrugated board; blueboard; Blue board; museum board; conservation board; archival backing board; Permec®; PermaDur® Archival Corrugated board; Bi-Corr®; Lineco Archival Backer Board; Corrugated E-flute

Applications

  • Box-making, inserts, dividers, backings and supports.
  • Lining drawers and shelves

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”.
