Abstract

Currently corrugated box and board are designed and manufactured according to the strength specs, such as BCT, SCCT, RCT and SCT. As the market moves toward greener packaging (less-waste, less-cost, and less carbon footprint), the box and board manufacturers are trying to meet both these demands and the strength specs. However, the task is becoming increasingly difficult, because this subject is not new and the industry in fact has already worked on it for decades. The basic question today is what else we can do to improve/maintain strength with reduced weight (and reduced cost).
