UN Approved 4G, 4GV Fibreboard Box Hazardous Goods Packaging
Hazardous materials are an unavoidable part of many industries, including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and electronics. To transport these dangerous goods safely, the packaging is crucial. Fibreboard boxes are a popular option for hazardous goods packaging, as they are durable and cost-effective. In this article, we will explore what fibreboard boxes are, why they are an excellent choice for hazardous goods packaging and the different types of fibreboard boxes available.
What is a Fibreboard Box?
Fibreboard boxes are made from compressed paper or cardboard fibers. They are designed to be sturdy, lightweight, and versatile, making them an ideal choice for packaging a wide variety of products, including hazardous goods. The strength of fibreboard boxes comes from the combination of several layers of paper, which are pressed together to form a single sheet. The thickness of the sheet depends on the required strength of the box, and additional features can be added, such as coatings to improve moisture resistance or to make the box more resistant to punctures.
