Paper Cans

What is Paper Can

A paper can is a type of packaging typically made from paperboard. It contains and stores items such as dry food, beverage powder, snacks or other products. Paper cans are customisable so that companies can create unique packages for their products. They are also highly functional as paper cans provide excellent protection for the product inside them due to their strong paperboard construction.

Paper containers are therefore an ideal choice for various industries looking to package goods in an economic yet attractive way. With its versatility and sustainability, paper can packaging is an increasingly popular choice for businesses worldwide.

What Kind of Paper is Used for Packaging

The paper used for packaging can be classified into two main categories: corrugated cardboard and paperboard.

Corrugated cardboard

Corrugated cardboard is a strong and durable material composed of multiple layers of paper glued together with an adhesive. It usually has fluting between its outer layers, giving it additional strength and durability.


Paperboard is another paper-based packaging material made from several layers of paper pulp or recycled materials, such as newspapers or magazines. Unlike corrugated cardboard, it does not have fluting but has a smooth finish on both sides.
