Class 1 s-1.1; S-1.2; S-1.3; BS-1.1; Bs-1.2 what do you mean

according to ridge type: a ridge, C ridge, b ridge and e ridge; Four, thickness a & gt; C> B> E
according to the purpose: (inside and surface) paper, corrugated paper and core paper
according to the color: yellow paper (Kraft linerboard), white paper
according to the physical properties: Grade A, grade B, grade C, grade A1, B2, etc.
according to the gram weight: 125g, 140g, 150g, 160g, 175g, 200g, 220g, 250g or even higher
according to the box type: A1 type, A5 type, K1 type, C1 type, E type, TD type, TM type, etc. These are more professional types, so we won’t explain them one by one here

bursting strength: the maximum external force that a unit area of corrugated board can bear before it is broken. Unit: kg /cm2
cardboard breaking strength = top paper breaking strength + medium grid paper breaking strength + bottom paper breaking strength
due to certain strength loss in the manufacturing process, the actual tested breaking strength will be less than the calculated value of about 1 kg /cm2

(for more knowledge, please refer to the national standard of the people’s Republic of China GB 6543-86)

class 1 s-1.1 indicates that the resistance strength is 638 and the transformation strength is 4.5

class 1 s-1.2 indicates that the compressive strength is 785 and the variable pressure strength is 5.0

class 1 s-1.3 indicates that the compressive strength is 1177 and the transformation strength is 6.0

bs-1.1 indicates that the maximum mass of the contents is 5kg and the maximum comprehensive size is 700a /mm

bs-1.2 indicates that the maximum mass of the contents is 10kg and the maximum comprehensive size is 1000A /mm

the most common classification is based on the corrugated shape of paperboard

there are four types of corrugated board: A, B, C and E

generally speaking, the cartons used for outer packaging mainly use a, B and C corrugated cardboard; B and E-shaped corrugated are adopted for the medium package; E-corrugated board is often used for small packaging

when producing and manufacturing corrugated boxes, they are generally distinguished according to the box type of the box

the box type structure of corrugated boxes generally adopts the international box type standard jointly formulated by the European Federation of corrugated box manufacturers (FEFCO) and the Swiss paperboard Association (assco). This standard has been approved by the International Corrugated Board Association and is widely used internationally. According to the international carton type standard, carton structure can be divided into basic type and combined type> the first two digits in the legend represent the basic type of carton. Br>> can be found in the first two digits. For example: 02 indicates slotted carton; 03 means nested carton, etc

combined type is the combination of basic type, that is, it is composed of more than two basic box types, which are represented by multiple groups of four digit numbers or codes. For example, the upper swing cover of a carton can be type 0204 and the lower swing cover can be type 0215

China’s national standard gb6543-86 refers to the international box type standard series and specifies the basic box types of single corrugated box and double corrugated box for transportation and packaging

however, in the late 1980s, with the changes of distribution channels and market sales forms, a number of non-standard corrugated boxes with novel structures emerged. With the birth of each new structure, almost a set of corresponding fully automatic packaging system or packaging equipment came out, which greatly enriched the application market of cartons. These new non-standard cartons mainly include wrapped cartons, separated cartons, triangular column cartons and large cartons.

gb6543-86 national standard for corrugated boxes
this standard is applicable to single corrugated board and double corrugated board boxes for transportation and packaging (hereinafter referred to as corrugated boxes)

1 Classification

corrugated cardboard boxes are divided into 30 types according to the different types of corrugated cardboard used, the maximum weight of the contents of the package and the sum of the box size, as shown in Table 1

note: the comprehensive size of a carton refers to the sum of its internal dimensions length, width and height. Category 1 boxes are mainly used for export and transportation and packaging of valuables; Class 2 boxes are mainly used for transportation and packaging of domestic products; Class 3 cases are mainly used for transportation and packaging of short distance and low-cost goods> see Appendix A for the code of this standard box. The figure in Appendix A (omitted) shows the basic styles of various cartons. Each figure has a four digit code. The first two digits in the code represent the type of carton, and the last two digits represent the different carton styles in the same kind of carton

2.1.1 slotted carton (type 02)

is the most commonly used outer packaging carton. It is basically composed of a piece of corrugated cardboard. The joints are sealed into cartons by nailing or bonding. There are top and bottom folding sheets (commonly known as up and down shaking covers) to form the bottom and cover. It can be folded and placed horizontally during transportation, and the box cover can be sealed when in use

2.1.2 nested carton (type 03)

a box composed of several blank sheets, which is characterized by the separation of the box and the box cover (top cover and bottom cover). When in use, the box cover and the box are sleeved

usually consists of a piece of corrugated board, which is folded into the bottom of the box without nailing or bonding

2.2 it can also be manufactured according to other types specified in the order contract

3 carton accessories

in order to improve the protection of the contents, carton accessories such as spacer, gasket, base and die-cutting parts are allowed.

B. width (b): the size of the short side of the bottom area of the box

C. height (H):
the dimension from the top to the bottom of the box
