Glossary Palletizing: Securing and loading containers on pallets for shipment as a single unit load, typically for handling by mechanical equipment. Panel: A “face” or “side” of a box. Paperboard: One of the two major product categories of the paper industry. Includes the broad classification of materials made of cellulose fibers, primarily wood pulp and recycled paper stock, on board machines. The major types are containerboard and boxboard. (The other major product group of the paper industry is paper, including printing and writing papers, packaging papers, newsprint and tissue.) Partitions: A set of slotted corrugated, solid fiberboard or chipboard pieces that interlock when assembled to form a number of cells into which articles may be placed for shipment. Ply: Any of the several layers of paperboard or solid fiberboard. Point: Term used to describe the thickness or caliper of paperboard, where one point equals one thousandth of an inch. Preprint: A web (roll) of linerboard that has been printed and re-wound prior to the manufacture of combined board. Use requires special equipment on a corrugator to assure precise slit, score and cut-off operations. Printer-Slotter: A machine that prints fiberboard sheets, and then scores and slots to complete the manufacture of box blanks. Pulp: The mixture of wood fibers obtained by chemical cooking or by the mechanical treatment of wood consisting of cellulose with varying amounts of other materials found in wood. R Rail Rule 41 or Rule 41: A rule in the Uniform Freight Classification of the rail carriers containing requirements for corrugated and solid fiberboard boxes. Recyclable: Packaging materials that may be processed through a number of treatments or changes in order to be reused. Recycled Content: Corrugated, paperboard and paper may contain up to 100 percent recycled fibers. Fiber may be recycled from pre-consumer sources (box plant scrap and trimmings) and/or post-consumer sources (corrugated boxes that have been used and recovered for recycling). Regular Slotted Container: A single sheet of corrugated board. The sheet is scored and slotted to permit folding. Flaps extending from the side and end panels form the top and bottom of the box. All flaps are the same size from the edge of the sheet to the flap scorelines. The two outer flaps (normally the lengthwise flaps) are one-half the container’s width so that they meet at the center of the box when the user folds them. Flute direction may be either perpendicular to the length of the sheet (usually for top-opening RSCs) or parallel to the length of the sheet (usually for end-opening RSCs). S Score or Scoreline: A well-defined impression or crease in corrugated or solid fiberboard made to position and facilitate folds.
