About cArtù® 2018-02-28T16:42:31+00:00

cArtù® is the new corrugated cardboard with a revolutionary flute for superior performance.

More than 100 years after the invention of corrugated cardboard, Grifal has redesigned its flutes, improving its performance.

cArtù® is the product that best illustrates our company’s mission of sustainability: a new kind of paper-based protective packaging material that is more ecological than the traditional corrugated cardboard, reducing by 2/3’s the amount of paper necessary to produce a protective box and completely eliminating the need to resort to plastic and other non-ecological elements.

The innovative design improvement of cArtù® is that each flute is bordered by a deep fold that serves as a reinforcing rib. This is achieved by a new industrial process that produces flutes with an arch-like parabolic profile instead of sinusoidal profiles, rendering 50% more flutes in a given length of cArtù® as compared with traditional corrugated cardboards.

Corrugated cardboard: traditional sinusoidal flutes

 

cArtù®: super-resistant parabolic arches

cArtù® is the winner of the sustainability challenge

cArtù® reduces the amount of raw material needed to produce an equivalent volume of corrugated cardboard and is much lighter than the equivalent thickness of corrugated cardboard. Thus cArtù® can rightfully be considered a super-ecological product, cutting CO2 emissions by 75% in the production process.

 

cArtù®: the new frontier in terms of structure and aesthetics
