Glossary Linerboard, Wet-Strength: Linerboard that has been chemically treated during manufacture to impart higher resistance to rupture when saturated with water. Linerboard, White Top or Mottled: An uncoated linerboard of two or more layers that has a white surface of either bleached fibers or cleaned recycled white fibers. The layers below the top layer are generally unbleached or recycled fibers. Litho or Lithography: A printing process using a plate that has been chemically treated so that the image to be printed is receptive to ink, while blank areas repel ink. Used primarily for fine reproduction, including labels for fiberboard boxes. Loose: Articles not in a box, package or other container. (See also: Bulk) M Manufacturer’s Joint: A joint (seal) made by the box manufacturer, who folds the scored and slotted box blank in two places, brings one side panel and one end panel together and joins them with adhesive, tape or staples. A taped joint simply connects the two panels, with no overlapping material. When a narrow tab extends from the end panel to overlap the side panel, it is fastened with adhesive or wire stitches (staples). Master Pack: A shipping container used to overwrap or contain a number of individual containers. Medium: (See: Corrugating Medium) Medium, Wet-Strength: Medium that has been chemically treated during manufacture to impart higher resistance to rupture when saturated with water. Mullen: (See: Burst Strength) N Nested: When three or more different sizes of an article are placed within the next larger size, or when three or more of the same articles are placed one within the other so that each upper article does not project above the next lower article by more than one-third of its height. O Offset: A printing technique in which the inked image is transferred from the plate to a clean cylinder, which in turn transfers the image to the sheet of paper or paperboard. The term is usually combined with the printing method, as in offset lithography. Overlap: A design feature wherein the top and/or bottom flaps of a box do not butt, but extend one over the other. The amount of overlap is measured from flap edge to flap edge. P Package: A small- to moderate-sized container. Containers referred to in the carrier classifications as fiberboard packages do not necessarily comply with Item 222 or Rule 41. (See also: Numbered Package) Pad: A corrugated or solid fiberboard sheet, or sheet of other authorized material, used for extra protection or for separating tiers or layers of articles when packed for shipment.
