Micro flute Paper Market: An Overview
Micro flute is a thin structured corrugated paper used for manufacturing packaging solutions such as clamshells, trays, boxes etc. in various end-use industries such as food, beverages, electrical & electronics, healthcare & pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics & personal care. It is made of a fluted sheet of corrugation (the wavy part) and one or two linerboards (inner and outer sheets). The composition of linerboard can be adapted according to the needs. Packaging manufacturers are continuously designing innovative products to minimize the raw material consumption without compromising on performance and quality. The lightweight flute corrugated boxes provide some measure of product protection by themselves and also the corrugation helps in enhancing various properties of the board including weight, durability, strength, load bearing capacity, flexibility. This is the reason that corrugated boxes are more preferred over normal cardboard boxes. Micro flute is a thin corrugated structured paper of low thickness. Micro flutes are light weight and yet durable board of corrugated with the combination of flutes and liners. Micro flute paper is used as a reliable solution for moisture and grease penetration and is customizable as per the required degree of grease resistance. Along with the barrier properties micro flute paper offers printability on its surface. Low porosity of micro flute paper allows better absorption and drying of inks.

Micro flute Paper Market: Dynamics
The versatility of its composition bring together the protective features of a corrugated board with the very fine printing, folding and creasing ca0070abilities of premium type of boards such as SBS boards. This combination of features is very appealing for products requiring outstanding presentation along with the particular care and the composition of the micro flute can include specialty paperboards with features such as water grease proof, water resistance board, and barrier resistant. Micro flute (F- and N-Flute) are becoming very popular for primary packaging. Being part of the corrugated board family, N-types and F-types micro flutes offer an exceptional protection to the product. The resistance to crush and burst of micro flute paper is such that it allows packaging manufacturer to skip the secondary packaging and hence cut down the manufacturing cost. Cost cutting occurs at two levels: Secondary packaging is not needed and packaging products can be stacked on the pallets directly. Pallets can hold more goods hence cost incurred in the transportation and storage are reduced. For brands eyeing on sustainability and carbon footprint, it is an option worth to be considered. The versatility of its composition bring together the protective features of a corrugated board with the very fine printing, creasing and folding capabilities of premium boards such as SBS boards. This combination of features is product appealing requiring outstanding presentation (Cosmetics, fine food, medical devices) and particular care.
