Description of Kraft Paper and Boxes

Kraft paper, also known as Kraft board, is a versatile material that is widely used in the packaging industry. It is made from chemical wood pulp and comes in a range of grades, including normal Kraft and high-strength Kraft. Kraft paper can be either brown or white, depending on whether it has been bleached.

In the Chinese market, Kraft paper is available in both domestic and imported varieties, with imported Kraft coming mainly from the USA, Netherlands, and Russia. Domestic Kraft paper is produced in Zhejiang, Shanghai, and Guangdong and is available in a range of qualities from 150gsm to 330gsm. Imported Kraft paper is typically stronger but also more expensive, while domestic Kraft can meet most packaging needs. For heavier weights of 250gsm or more, Kraft paper is commonly referred to as Kraft board or paper stock.

The most common style for Kraft paper boxes is the lift-off lid box and the slide-style box.

  1. Lift-off lid Kraft paper box, also known as a top and bottom box, consists of two parts: the top lid and the bottom base. This type of Kraft box is typically made with the same height for the lid and the base to double the compressive strength and bearing capacity of the box.

This style of Kraft box has a secure and sturdy structure and is easy to use since the drawer can be pulled out from both sides of the slipcase.
