Our corrugated board is sustainably produced using a high percentage of recycled materials, and we are proud to source FSC® material for all of our customers.

Material grades & DST testing

Reedbut are very aware that not all paper grades offered by the board mills are the same. Despite claims to the contrary, equivalent board grades from suppliers can vary by 30% in the performance they offer. We consciously source different grades of board from sheet feeders dependant on their performance which we routinely monitor.

By talking to clients about their products we acquire an understanding of the contents they are shipping and their expectations of the boxes. We then design an appropriate and reliable package with the correct board grade for that job. The performance of the final box meets, and usually exceeds, the customers requirements. To help us do this we utilise DST, Dynamic Stiffness Testing.

The DST process measures the natural angular frequency of a sample when it is rotated with a known mass attached. (i.e. the sample is twisted and released and the oscillations observed), the pattern of these oscillations is directly proportional to the torsional stiffness and therefore the overall performance of the box.

Finally, during manufacture, we utilise a Zero Crush conversion process. This maintains the integrity of the board we purchase and the process also enhances the print quality on the board.

Reducing ink waste and saving water

For over 40 years, we have seen a lot of changes and print evolution in our industry.  One of the most challenging situations has been to find a method to cut the wastage of ink and save the amount of water required.  But, challenge resolved!

Designed by the experts from Absolute and Pamarco, InkSave is the result of 70 years’ experience in flexo and continual investment in technology for rigorous product development.  And we are proud to use this system.

InkSave cuts ink wastage by as much as 80% and reduces water consumption by up to 50%. Think about how that benefits the environment!  And, there’s no reduction in quality to your print either!
