  PAPER & PAPERBOARD  
 

Paper is a thin material used for writing upon, printing upon or packaging, produced by the amalgamation of fibers.

 

While fibers used are usually natural in origin, a wide variety of synthetic fibers, such as polypropylene and polyethylene, may be incorporated into paper as a way of imparting desirable properties.

The most common source of these kinds of fibers is wood pulp from pulpwood trees. Vegetable fiber materials such as cotton, hemp, linen and rice are also used.

 

Paperboard on the other hand is a paper-like material, usually ten "mills" (0.010 inch) in thickness.

 

Thickness, bulk and caliper are significant aspects to paperboard manufacture, as the end product must be able to withstand the bending forces of packaging, load carrying, shipping etc., while still maintaining their shape.

Consequently, these paperboard products are sometimes composed of two or more plies to provide the required stiffness.

 

Within the industry, paperboard is referred to by weight (grams per square meter, pounds per 1000 square feet) or by thickness (mm or thousandths of an inch, or 'points'.

 

Today paperboard packaging in general, and especially products from certified sustainable sources are receiving new attention, as manufacturers dealing with environmental, health and regulatory issues look to renewable resources to meet increasing demand. It is now mandatory for paper-based packaging to be manufactured wholly or partially composed of recycled.
