Glossary 
K Knocked-Down (KD) or Knocked-Down Flat (KDF): A flat, unopened box whose manufacturer’s joint has been sealed. An article that is partially or entirely taken apart for packing and shipment. A KD box may be designated as “right hand” when the longer panel appears on the right or as “left hand” when it appears on the left. Kraft: Word of German origin meaning strength; designates pulp, paper or paperboard produced from wood fibers by the sulfate process. L Label: A separate slip or sheet of paper affixed to a surface for identification or description. For fiberboard boxes, includes: -- Full Label: A printed sheet of paper laminated to and covering the entire surface of the box blank. Usually used to add fine-screen, four-color illustrations that cannot be achieved with direct printing on the porous paperboard surface. – Mailing or Shipping Label: A small label usually attached by the box user to provide shipping instructions. – Spot Label: A printed sheet covering a portion of the surface of the box blank. May cover a portion of one panel, a full panel or several panels of the box. – UPC (Universal Product Code) Label: A small label, usually printed in black ink on white paper, carrying a sharp image of the contents’ UPC. Used instead of direct printing of bar codes when scanning equipment requires higher resolution. Labeler: Machine that applies labels, usually of the smaller types (mailing, spot and UPC). (See also: Laminator, Paster) Laminator: A machine that adheres two or more plies of paper or fiberboard. May be used to adhere partial or full labels to a facing, or, for enhanced structural properties, two facings, two corrugating mediums or two sheets of combined board. Letterpress: A process of printing in which raised images are coated with ink and pressed directly onto a paper or paperboard surface. Liner: A creased fiberboard sheet inserted as a sleeve in a container and covering all side walls. Used to provide extra stacking strength or cushioning. Also used as short hand for “linerboard” or “facing.” Linerboard: Paperboard used for the flat outer facings of combined corrugated fiberboard, and the outer plies of solid fiberboard. Linerboard, High-Strength/Performance: Linerboard made with increased refining, additional mechanical agitation of the pulp on the Fourdrinier table or additional “wet pressing” on the paper machine to increase strength and performance without increasing weight. Linerboard, Sized: Linerboard that has been chemically treated during manufacture to resist the absorption of water.
