Solid Board by Preston Board and Packaging Ltd

Solid board boxesA majority of you are familiar with the Solid board. However, to assist those who may not quite know what it is, this product is a type of paperboard material that is made of the same components all through. The materials used to make the Board are glued layers of paper and Cardboard, after which waterproof adhesive (PVA) is applied.

This helps make the board suited for packaging purposes for products, which need transportation in special or moist conditions. Without compromising quality, a customer can get the board adjusted to their liking.

  • The board has a high density that gives it firmness for packaging.
  • It is appropriate for easy addition of exact cutting and folding lines.
  • The limits of its thickness make it one of the most cost-effective storage and handling materials.
  • The board is environmentally friendly. It is 100% recyclable.
