Our Standard Corrugated Cardboard Boxes for Shipping are made from 200# / ECT-32-C carton fiber to cater to all of your shipping and storage needs. Find exactly what you are looking for with our easy to use filter below.
RSC (Regular Slotted Container) are the typical everyday Corrugated boxes. The lengthwise flaps are one-half the container's width so they meet in the center when folded. The RSC box can be used for most products and is the most common box style.
These boxes only have closing flaps on one open end of the box. These are for applications in which you would overload the box with goods or implement another top enclosure.
FOL (Full Overlap Slotted Containers) boxes have lengthwise flaps that are almost the width of the box. When these flaps are closed, the outer flaps come to within one inch of making a complete overlap. This style of box is especially resistant to rough handling. HD (Heavy Duty) and DW (Double-Wall) boxes provide even tougher choices.
Eliminate shipping damages and costly returns by choosing the right box for your application.

Comparing Bursting Test vs. Edge Crush Test
There are currently two tests used throughout the corrugated industry to determine strength.
1. Bursting (Mullen) Test = A measure of the force required to rupture or puncture the face of corrugated board and is measured by a Mullen Tester.
2. Edge Crush Test (ECT) = ECT is a measure of the edgewise compressive strength of the corrugated board. It is measured by compressing a small segment of the board on edge between two rigid platens or plates perpendicular to the direction of the flutes until a peak load is established. This is measured in pounds per lineal inch of load-bearing edge (lb/in) but usually reported as an ECT value (for example, 44 ECT). Information from https://statweb.stanford.edu
|Bursting Test||Minimum Edge Crush Test||Maximum Load Per Carton|
|Standard||200#||32 ECT||40 lbs.|
|Heavy Duty||275#||44 ECT||65 lbs.|
|Heavy Duty - Double Wall||275#||48 ECT||80 lbs.|
