There are more than 50 different types of cardboard brands available in Latvia; however, there is no common classification or labelling. That’s why each cardboard manufacturer uses its own cardboard labelling.

 There are some generally accepted classifications of cardboard types, which will help you better navigate through the cardboard range:

 1. Types of cardboard are classified in accordance with their structure and the characteristics of the paper used for manufacture.

 1.1. Cardboard structure consists of two elements: number of paper layers and sheet thickness.
 Depending on the number of layers, there are three layer and five layer cardboards.

Depending on the sheet thickness, cardboards are divided in the following categories (profiles):

  E profile - 1.5 mm (micro-corrugated cardboard)
  B profile – 2.7-3 mm;
  C profile – 4-4.5 mm;
  BC profile -6.5-7.5 mm;

2. Cardboard quality and durability.
Packaging durability is determined by: correct box structure; correctly chosen corrugated cardboard brand;
During use packaging is subject to aggressive environment and mechanical impact, for example: impacts, shaking, vibrations, static and dynamic stresses, etc. That’s why it is very important to evaluate the product and logistics chain, as well as any factors/risks affecting each stage of packaging use before ordering the packaging. You can find more details about how to choose packaging here.
