Boxboard is an umbrella term used for packaging solutions made from different grades of paperboard. Boxboard is manufactured from mechanical pulp which forms the middle layer; two outer layers are manufactured from chemical pulp. Boxboard includes rigid boxes, folding boxes, paperboard trays, and beverage holders used in the packaging industry. A rigid or a set-up box is a container manufactured in a three-dimensional form that is ready to be filled. A rigid box does not collapse like a folding carton as the chipboard used is thicker. Rigid boxes are usually cheap to manufacture. They are used for packaging jewelry and cosmetics. Folding boxes are containers that use a variety of folding techniques. They can be pre-glued by hand or machine-erected depending upon the requirement of the product that needs to be packaged. Innovatively shaped packs help manufacturers differentiate their product in the market. They can be used to package different products such as bakery, dairy, fruits & vegetables, electronics, and meat. Trays may be manufactured in various shapes and sizes depending on the requirement. They are made from different grades of paperboard (mainly recycled) and used for representation purposes and holding mono-packaged FMCG products in stores. They are also used for packaging ready meals and meats. Trays are a sustainable solution as they have excellent sealing integrity of board and lid options, they are resistant to high temperatures, and are also suitable for freezing. Apart from this, paperboard trays are less likely to break like plastic products, when they are frozen. It is also a better insulator than plastic.
