Types of Joints in Corrugated Cardboard Boxes
A flat piece of corrugated fiberboard, which has been cut, slotted and scored, is called box blank. For some box styles, in order to make a box, the two ends of the box blank must be fastened together with tape, staples or glue. The place where these two ends meet is known as the joint.
Glued Joint - Liquid adhesives are used to join the glue tabs.
Stitched Joint - Staples or other fasteners are used to join the tabs.
Taped Joint - If there are no tabs, the box must be joined using tape, requiring a minimum of 1 1/4-inch overlap.
Different types of joints are selected according to the goods that will be stored or shipped. Talk to us today to find out what types of boxes are best suited to your needs. You can also learn more about other aspects of corrugated cardboard, flute types, and types of boxes.More Resources
