What is Containerboard? 
Containerboards are fiber based derivatives that manufactured from virgin cellulose fibre (kraftliner) or from recycled fibres or a combination of both. These are used to manufacture boxes and corrugated containers. It is estimated that more than 95% of all US based produce are transported in corrugated boxes made of containerboard. This huge demand is due to its recognized strength for transport of all types of products as it protects the inside contents from external forces (side and top pressure) while withstanding and environmental impact. Its convenience of stacking and transport of products, and the usage recycled materials in its production is an added advantage
