Paperboard is a thick paper-based material. While there is no rigid differentiation between paper and paperboard, paperboard is generally thicker (usually over 0.30 mm, 0.012 in, or 12 points) than paper and has certain superior attributes such as foldability and rigidity.

Paper and board are versatile materials used to package foods. Paper packaging can e.g. be made of parchment paper or have the shape of bags to package loose foods. Carton board is commonly used for e.g. liquid and dry foods, frozen foods and fast food.

According to the ISO standardisation body, a paper product with a gram- mage exceeding 200 g/m² is called paperboard; however the definition by the Confederation of European Paper Industries, CEPI, reads “paper is usually called board when it is heavier than 220 g/m²”.

Paperboard is quite commonly used for packaging food and beverage products including juices, milk, and cereal products. Paperboard packaging comes in several grades. Solid bleached sulfate (SBS) paperboard contains at least 80% virgin bleached wood pulp.

  • Coated Unbleached Kraft (CUK)
  • Coated Recycled Paperboard.

Paperboard is one material that has been widely adopted for a variety of purposes. It is a thick and flat piece of paper manufactured from a network of fibres. In fact, what sets the two apart is only the thickness. The production features a single construction with others coming with a multi-layered build

The characteristics of paper and paperboard as packaging materials is that

it can be easily cut and formed, is lightweight, and is strong; paperboard is popular in many industries as a packaging option. Pulp (virgin or recycled) is used to create one or more layers of board which can be coated for a better surface and/or improved visual appearance.

Paperboard is thicker than average paper, but it is still just one layer. Cardboard is three layers of heavy paper, two flat with a wavy one in the middle. Because they have different layers of paper and different weights, these two products cannot be recycled together or in the same way.

Paperboard consists of: cereal boxes, cracker boxes, shoes boxes, egg cartons, paper towel rolls, toilet paper rolls, beer or soda packs, manila and bleached file folders, boxes from toothpaste or other toiletries, etc
