What corrugated cardboard means

You are familiar with the term cardboard, but what does corrugated mean?

Corrugated cardboard is the most common type of cardboard box type, and it is most popular for its durability and cost. This cardboard is stiff, strong, and lightweight and is made up from two layers of brown kraft paper.

The term corrugate comes from the converting process of which wood pulp is corrugated and made into paper; it’s rolled over to create the famous corrugated waves, and then the paper is cut to size and glued together to form its final shape. Corrugated cardboard was first developed in 1884 by a Swedish chemist who developed the process for pulping wood chips into this most popularly strong paper we use today.
