Cartons

What are Cartons?

A carton is a cardboard box that is used for packaging goods and raw materials. When transporting goods, it is important that cartons be durable and strong in order to protect the materials. An additional benefit to cartons is that they can be branded, which makes them act as marketing materials. In this case it is extremely important that high quality prints are used.

How are Cartons made?

Cartons are typically made of corrugated paper. They are constructed by sandwiching a “flute” between two liners. Cartons are very often made from recycled content, sourced from old cardboard or other sources of second hand paper.

How are Cartons Used?

Cartons are used in medium large and small scale industries for storing, protecting, identifying, and facilitating the sale and distribution of agricultural, industrial, and consumer products.
Virtually all manufactured and processed goods require packaging during some phase of their production and distribution.

What makes good Packaging

Good cartons or packaging must maintain the purity and freshness of its contents and protect them from the outside environment; if the contents are harmful, corrosive, or poisonous, the package must also protect the outside environment. The packaging itself must present no chemical hazard, as well.
The package should also identify the contents and their quantity, and it must facilitate distribution. The package may contribute to the convenient use of its contents by special dispensing or closure features.

How does Graphitek maintain the quality of their packaging?

At Graphitek Ventures Ltd, we test for ruggedness, size, weight, and printing to verify that all cartons meet internal and customer specifications. These quality control checks are part of our standard production process with tests ranging from routine and quick to complex and lengthy.
Quality control tests can either be automatic or manual to ensure customer satisfaction.
