Typical micro-flute applications include product and transport
packaging. Advantages over solid board include the fact that less
raw material is required to achieve a given level of stability.
Micro-flute packaging also has better stacking and flexural
strength and weighs less. Its superior insulating properties also
make it ideal for deep-freeze fast-food packaging.
Short-grain material must be used for micro-flute printing.
The flutes then lie in the direction of travel, offering greater
stability. The blanket is the key parameter for micro-flute
printing since it must be able to ensure good ink
transfer even at low pressures. Therefore, inks that transfer well,
even at the lowest of pressures, should be selected.
