Applications of white lined chipboard


What Is White Lined Chipboard?

White Lined Chipboard is A Very Versatile and Eco-friendly Material

Also known as simply whiteline chip, this particular material is made of 100% recycled paper pulp. The base material is actually grey board, a name that stems from the colour of the paperboard. It becomes white lined chipboard when coated with a layer of white clay. Other names for this material are pe coated board white back paperboard (CCNB) and duplex board.

What is white lined chipboard used for?

This material is very popular in the manufacture of folding paper boxes as well as litho-laminated cartons. It is therefore a very popular material for the packaging of various products. It can be made in an almost endless variety of shapes and sizes and is usually no more than 0.6mm thick. Other thicknesses can be created by gluing layers together.

The Manufacture of Whiteline Chip

A variety of materials go into making this material. The base material is made using paper pulp, usually with a high percentage of newsprint. This is what gives it the grey appearance. Various additives can be added to the pulp to change the colour, properties and finish of the end product. A brown finish can be achieved by adding brown coloured dye. A more moisture resistant finish can be achieved by adding a sizing agent.

Die Cutting Services in the Cardboard Industry

The ubiquitous use of grey cardboard sheets in the industrial world calls for cardboard die cutting services to cut and shape the board. As a significant component of a whole production chain, the quality, speed, and efficiency of cutting and shaping cardboard affects a considerable number of sub-assemblies, components, and assemblies. At NEW BAMBOO PAPER, we understand our role in the cardboard-utilising industry and are dedicated to implementing the latest technology. For example, each die is designed for the type of cardboard that we are cutting or shaping.

Today, cardboard die cutting technology has achieved a level of sophistication capable of cutting through a single layer of laminate. We apply this advanced technology by using three different cardboard die cutting machines. You could say we embed flexibility into our technology. For you, our customer, this means your cardboard containers are also enhancing your branding activities. You convey your product and style at the same time. 

The many industrial applications of cardboard

As part of our general conversion services, we create a cardboard that can withstand greater stress by altering its width and shape. For example, the laminating material  makes cardboard stronger by bonding the materials together with a poly vinyl acetate glue. An inner core provides strength while the smooth outer layers present a durable surface. A lamination process can produce a 5mm sheet in thickness of up to 2000 x 3200mm. Another of our services is cornering and edge protection angles. Cornering the sharp edges of a pallet with cardboard paper sheets makes sure your goods are not damaged in transit, particularly if the goods or the pallet proves to be unstable. 

In addition to cutting, shaping, laminating, and protecting, we offer various types of tubing. Spiral wound tubes are the industrial standard for packing and shipping lightweight products that cannot be folded, for instance wall paper or posters. Convolute tubes have a higher beam strength than spiral wound tubes and are suitable for heavier products such as textiles. The tubes coming in different sizes and can be printed or plain and come in a white or brown finish. From die cutting to guillotining, we are committed to eco-friendly products in sizes, thicknesses and shapes to suit all your industrial needs.

How Eco-friendly is paper board really?

It is in fact one of the most environmentally friendly packaging materials and very much maligned. Responsible paper board manufacturers produce the material using 100% recycled paper that is made into a pulp and then formed into jumbo reels. Because of this anything made using this material can be recycled.

A Material That Can be Produced to Suit Specific Needs

Paperboard, in general, in a very versatile material that can be made very strong and sturdy. It is so versatile that it is used for probably as much as 50% of packaging materials. Technology has meant that it can be made into folding cartons that can be transported flat before being used. Another feature of the product that makes it very environmentally friendly. Developments in the production machinery have also meant it can be made into a wide range of shapes and sizes. Catering to the needs of a selection of different industries. Laminating methods have further increased its usefulness making it more durable, stronger and moisture resistant. It is used in industries as diverse as publishing and catering.
