Glossary Scored and Slotted Sheet: A sheet of corrugated fiberboard with one or more scorelines, slots or slits. A scored and slotted sheet may be further defined by the pattern of scorelines and slots or slits, as a box blank (for a box style made from a single sheet of corrugated fiberboard), a box piece or part, a tray or wrap, a partition piece, an inner packing piece or some other designation. Seam: The junction created by any free edge of a container flap or panel where it abuts or rests on another portion of the container and to which it may be fastened by tape, stitches or adhesive in the process of closing the container. (See also: Joint) Semi-Chemical or Semi-Chem: Generic term referring to one of the manufacturing processes for making corrugating medium, in which chemicals are used to partially dissolve the lignin, and non-chemical or mechanical means are used to finish preparation of the fiber. Set-up Boxes: Boxes that have been squared with one set of end flaps sealed, ready to be filled with product. Sheet: A rectangle of combined board, untrimmed or trimmed, and sometimes scored across the corrugations when that operation is done on the corrugator. Also, a rectangle of any of the component layers of containerboard, or of paper or a web of paperboard as it is being unwound from the roll. Shipping Container: A container that is sufficiently strong to be used in commerce for packing, storing and transporting commodities. Silk Screen: Stencil-type printing method that involves forcing ink or paint through a mesh of silk or other porous material that has been prepared so as to block the coloring material in some areas. Sizing: The treatment of paper so that it is resistant to liquids or vapors. Sizing material is applied to the surface or throughout material to fill pores which reduces absorption. Slip Sheet: A flat sheet of material used as a base upon which goods and materials may be assembled, stored and transported. Slit: A cut made in a fiberboard sheet without removal of material. Slit-Score: A cut made in a fiberboard sheet extending through only a portion of the thickness, commonly seen as intermittent cuts on a scoreline. Purpose is to aide with folding on the scoreline. Slot: A wide cut, or pair of closely spaced parallel cuts including removal of a narrow strip of material, made in a fiberboard sheet, usually to form flaps and permit folding without bulges caused by the thickness of the material. Common widths are ¼ in. (.635 cm.) and 3/8 in. (.952 cm.). Solid Fiberboard: A solid board made by laminating two or more plies of containerboard. Stacking Strength: The maximum compressive load a container can bear over a given length of time, under given environmental/ distribution conditions without failing. Stapler or Stitcher: Machine that seals the joint and/or flaps of a box with metal staples or stitches.
