A cardboard box is the most common type of boxes for packaging. Due to its versatility, paperboard boxes are extremely used to protect and display products. This type of box is a stiff, strong, and light-weight material made up of layers of brown kraft paper. Racer Boxes prioritizes environmental-friendly cardboard boxes processes, preserving the environment by adopting sustainable methods and resources.


Cardboard Box Manufacturing Process

The process to manufacture a corrugated cardboard box starts with the pulping of wood in the kraft process. The first step of this process is getting tree trunks stripped and lumbered into small pieces. This raw material is put together in a big tank to go under a high-pressure and temperature mixed with a chemical solution to be cooked and blended. This stage might take several hours, finishing when the pressure is released and allows the wood pieces to explode like popcorn into masses of fiber.

The next stage is preparing the kraft paper to transform into boxes. A fun fact about the cardboard boxes manufacturing is that tree produces specific types of kraft paper for the cardboard boxes. For example, Scandinavian Spruce, Pine and Silver Birch fibers produce a dark brown color, however, in Brazil the use of Eucalyptus and Spruce are the most common, and they produce a light brown, whereas Chinese trees have a yellow color.

Finally, the kraft paper is processed in huge machines which make all the process to transform the paper into cardboard boxes. In this process, the rollers in the machines produce layers of cardboard and glued them to each other, making the corrugated edges. The very final stage is the process of trimming the cardboard and cutting into different sizes of box blanks to make the cardboard boxes in different sizes.
