2. 5-layer carton structure

5 layers carton include: 2 layers of sine wave paper, 2 outer layers of paper and 1 layer of flat paper in between 2 layers of corrugated paper.

The special feature of these 5 layers of paper is that they are interlaced to create a tight combination. 

5-layer carton is divided into 2 main types: 5-layer single corrugated carton and 5-layer double corrugated carton.

  • Outer layer (face layer)

This is the outermost layer of the carton. Therefore, the type of paper used for this layer will be the best glossy. Can be white paper, yellow paper, brown paper. Not only ensures the aesthetics but also makes the offset printing of the box easier.

  • Middle class

This is the layer that has the function of linking 2 wave layers together. Therefore, the paper used for this layer is soft and tough paper. Because it doesn't require much force.

  • 2 layers of waves

Consists of 1 layer between the surface layer and the middle layer, 1 layer between the bottom layer and the middle layer. The corrugated layer acts as a bearing layer to help prevent the impact of the barrel. 

Depending on the needs of use and the bearing capacity of the goods, you can choose wave class A, B, C, E, BC, BA, BE, CE or EA.

  • Bottom layer

Is the layer located at the bottom, also the layer in direct contact with the goods. So usually it is soft and has good elasticity. The paper used in this layer is usually paper or normal paper.

5-layer cartons often use BE waves to reduce costs and have a certain compatibility. However, if you are storing valuables or fragile items, BC corrugated boxes are recommended. 

3. Classification of 5-layer cartons

  • Single wave type

Is a type of carton made from a certain type of wave such as wave A, B, C or E.

    • 5-layer corrugated box A: The height of corrugated paper A is 4.7mm. This type of carton has the effect of withstanding good dispersion forces on the entire surface of the paper.
    • B-corrugated carton: with a corrugated layer thickness of 2.5mm. The number of waves over 30cm is 47+/-3. This type of barrel withstands high penetration forces.
    • C-corrugated carton: is a carton with 3.6mm thick corrugated layer and the number of waves per 30cm is 39+/-3. Although it can withstand good surface dispersion forces, it is still not as good as A corrugated box.
    • E-corrugated carton: This type of carton is quite thin because the thickness of the corrugated layer is only 1.5mm. Therefore, it is often used to store light weight objects.
  • Double wave type

This is a type of barrel that uses 2 different waveforms such as: wave BC, BA, BE, CE, EA, ...
