When it comes to selecting the right material for your packaging or printing project, it's important to understand the differences between the various types of carton board available. Testliner, kraftliner, and chipboard are all popular options, but they have distinct properties that make them suitable for different applications.

Testliner is a type of carton board made from recycled paper. It is characterized by its smooth surface and high strength, making it ideal for printing and laminating. Testliner is often used for the production of boxes, cartons, and other types of packaging, as well as for the production of folders, envelopes, and other paper products.

Kraftliner is a type of carton board made from virgin wood pulp. It is characterized by its rough, brown surface and high strength. Kraftliner is often used for the production of boxes, cartons, and other types of packaging, as well as for the production of bags and other paper products.

Chipboard is a type of carton board made from recycled paper. It is characterized by its rough, untreated surface and low strength. Chipboard is often used for the production of low-grade packaging, such as boxes and cartons for small, lightweight items.

So, what are the key differences between these types of carton board? One of the main differences is the surface finish. Testliner and kraftliner have smooth, finished surfaces, making them ideal for printing and laminating. Chipboard, on the other hand, has a rough, unfinished surface, which makes it less suitable for printing and laminating.

Another key difference is strength. Testliner and kraftliner are both known for their high strength, making them suitable for packaging and transporting heavy items. Chipboard, on the other hand, has low strength, making it suitable for packaging and transporting small, lightweight items only.

Finally, there is a difference in the raw materials used to produce these types of carton board. Testliner and chipboard are made from recycled paper, while kraftliner is made from virgin wood pulp. This means that testliner and chipboard are more environmentally friendly options than kraftliner.

In conclusion, when selecting the right carton board for your project, it's important to consider the surface finish, strength, and raw materials used. Testliner and kraftliner are both high-strength options with smooth, finished surfaces, making them suitable for printing and laminating. Chipboard is a low-strength option with a rough, unfinished surface, making it suitable for low-grade packaging only.
