Handling and Workability

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

Forms and 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”.

Applications for Storage Exhibit and Transport

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