Formaboard Edge Protection

Formaboard edge protection is a laminated paperboard that helps prevent product damage that can occur during shipping and handling. Manufactured with a patented, heat-welded process, provides exceptional strength, enabling customers to reduce their packaging requirements without sacrificing performance.

Features and Benefits

  • Functional construction
    Manufactured with a solid barrier to prevent moisture penetration, Formaboard edge protection is both water and moisture-resistant, making it ideal for products exposed to environmental elements. It works well for outdoor and agricultural applications as well as refrigerated/frozen food where condensation is an issue.
  • Maximizes cost efficiency
    The laminated paperboard’s superior strength properties enable customers to use a thinner caliper and/or shorter leg length than with a standard open-edge product, lowering packaging costs while maintaining an unparalleled level of protection.
  • Customizable
    To accommodate variable industry and customer requirements, the paperboard can be custom printed, allowing for product identification, point-of-sale merchandising and instructional purposes.
