The material found between the carton box's liner boards is referred to as flute. The flute's architecture contributes to the carton's longevity and ability to withstand more strain. It has an effect on the ease at which the package dents and the height at which the boxes can be stacked for shipment. The flute thickness is crucial in assessing the strength of the carton box or shipping container. The thickness of most flutes used in packaging made by a regular flute lamination machine is about 0.25 mm. The growth of online and e-commerce sales in food and beverages, electronics, cosmetics and other key end-use industries of corrugated cardboard is another factor supporting the growth of the global flute market.
