Chipboard

Call Frederick Packaging Inc. when you need chipboard. Chipboard is a 100% recycled fibre product produced from old corrugated cartons, folding cartons, and newsprint among other items. One of the most common uses of chipboard is that it is the back piece which provides stiffness on a scratch pad. chipboard

We can convert this product to your specific size: length x width in inches x caliper (thickness is one-thousandths of an inch). Each one-thousandth of an inch can be referred to as a “point”. Example – .020 is a “20 point” board. We measure caliper with a micrometer.

An example size may be 10 x 12 x .040″. This means the length is 10 inches, the width is 12 inches, and the thickness or caliper is 40/1000 of an inch, or 40 points. On plain, tan chipboard we can convert .018 – .150″ or between 18/1000 of an inch and 150/1000 of an inch. The more caliper, the more performance, the more material, the more cost.
