Litho Lamination describes the combination of corrugated board and printed sheets to create a highly protective yet attractive packaging solution. Litho lamination combines the strength of corrugation with the appeal of high quality lithographically printed sheets or pre-printed rolls. The strength and rigidity of the corrugated board is determined by the 'fluting' which separates the liners. Different flute profiles have different performance characteristics. A litho printed sheet with finishes such as lamination, embossing, foil blocking and spot varnish is bonded to the corrugated board. This combination results in excellent product protection and combined with your unique graphics results in a high quality finish every time.
F Flute - A very fine flute providing excellent crush resistance, rigidity and an excellent print surface.
E Flute - A fine flute used for smaller cartons offering excellent crush resistance.
B Flute - By far the most widely specified flute profile. It offers good compression strength whilst having excellent crush resistance.
C Flute - A larger flute than 'B' offering greater compression strength but less crush resistance
