Paperboard for Rigid Box Printing
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 3/7/2011  Keywords: Rigid Box Printing,folding box printing

If you need a paperboard for cosmetic folding box printing, for sleeve box in a book printing job, or for footware trades and small handtools, then you would have to consider the boards for rigid box printing. It is very difficult to define the principal market for rigid box, but the choice depends very largely on the type and weight of the contents, size of the box, the intricacies of manufacture and the degree of accuracy required.

During recent years, change has taken place within the rigid box industry, as to the type of board used. Originally, two main types were used. First, Dutch straw board was the traditional material used by the majority of box maker engaged in the mass production of machine-made boxes. It is a stiff material and makes a good rigid box. However, because of various drawbacks box makers looked for alternative materials.

The original chipboard offered by the British board mills, although not as rigid as the Dutch straw board, offered the advantage of not shrinking to quite the same extent. It therefore was more reliable for ensuring that the correct if was obtained between boxes and lids, and for minimizing the acute warping of shallow lids. The main disadvantage was the lack of rigidity and often a thicker board was required to obtain a similar rigidity to the Dutch straw board. This led the British board mills to produce a new grade of board known as rigid board, as a substitute for Dutch straw board. It was intended to combine the advantages of both Dutch straw board and home-produced chipboards. This board is now widely used in Kingdom and is available in thickness ranging from 0.5 to 2.9mm.

No strict rules can be drawn for the rigid box industry as to the type of board to be used. Generally speaking, the box maker will decide on the best board for the particular job in question, and this may vary from a plain unlined rigid board, through the complete range to a high class food quality duplex board.

There are many covering papers, though generally in the rigid box industry, there are a number of standard types in use. There include enamels, flints, tints, leatherettes, and many others. The covers can, of course, be printed, embossed or gold blocked and, as with board, the type of paper used depends on what the customer requires. The main consideration of the box maker is to know the behavioural characteristics of the various types of papers and how to overcome them if they have adverse affects on production.

The paperboard sector is mainly looked at in conjunction with the paper industry. The Paper & Paperboard market size (2007) had a value of 630.9 billion USD and a volume of 320.3 million metric tons. 40.1% of that market is European. About 50% of all produced paper is used for packaging, followed by printing and writing. The consumption of paper and paperboard seem to correlate with economic trends (GDP). According to ProCarton, the consumption of paper and paperboard seem to correlate with economic trends (GDP) the sales of carton in Europe sum up to around 8 billion Euros worth. Over 1,100 printers consume 5.4 million tonnes of cartonboard yearly. Cartons make up one third of paper and board packaging and 15% of all packaging. A bit more than half (54%) of the European carton is produced using recovered fibre or waste paper. The paper and paperboard industry is quite energy and capital intensive. A coated board line with 400kt/y costs around 60 million Euros (about 85 million USD in 07/2009). Economies of scale apply, because of which a few large players often dominate the market place. E.g. in North America the top 5 producers have a market share of 85%.
