Cardboard box

Cardboard boxes are industrially prefabricated boxes, primarily used for packaging goods and materials. Specialists in industry seldom use the term cardboard because it does not denote a specific material.

The term cardboard may refer to a variety of heavy paper-like materials, including card stock, corrugated fiberboard, or paperboard. The meaning of the term may depend on the locale, contents, construction, and personal choice.

Terminology

Several types of containers are sometimes called cardboard box:

  • A box or carton of cereal

  • A box or carton of cereal

  • Hard cigarette pack or paperboard box

  • Corrugated box used for storage of archives

  • Corrugated box used for storage of archives

  • Drink boxes

  • Set-up box made of non-bending paperboard

  • Set-up box made of non-bending paperboard

    In business and industry, material producers, container manufacturers,packaging engineers, and standards organizations, try to use more specific terminology. There is still not complete and uniform usage. Often the term “cardboard” is avoided because it does not define any particular material.
