Corrugated Packaging

In-depth expertise and excellent customer service

The corrugated packaging market is broad and complex. Corrugated board is now used for everything from cases and crash lock boxes to nested trays and shelf ready packaging. Our team of experts have worked extensively in this field, working with a range of products, including microflute and other wider products. Our experience in this area makes us one of Europe’s leading adhesive manufacturers.

This evolving market is demanding in terms of how it needs adhesives to perform. As corrugated board tends to be thick, there can be a lot of spring when the material is folded. The adhesives that are used need to have both good grab speeds and strength to resist this pressure. Larger cartons need an adhesive that will be strong enough to hold the carton down, but also allow slip.

The demand for a more decorative finish has increased over the past decade, with many cartons now being lined with printed paper. This shift in requirements has resulted in an uptake in the quality of shelf ready packaging. New manufacturing methods have developed alongside this trend and have had a direct impact on the type and quality of the adhesives available. These changes have meant that the demands faced by those working in this market are now more aligned with those of the carton converting market. We are proud to supply our customers with a range of products that demonstrate our experience in manufacturing new designs, made from new materials.

Common machines we manufacture adhesives for include:

  • Martin
