Cepac has launched what it claims is the UK’s first curved corrugated product.

The sample range, designed with Arcwise solutions for a wide spectrum of sectors including drinks, pet foods and confectionery, has undergone lab testing at Cepac’s development laboratories with results showing that the packs have improved performance characteristics due to the curved packaging form.

These boxes are now available for customer review, with indicative design options demonstrating how the technology, combined with high quality printing on curved panels, can be used by brands to stand out in a range of markets.

Steve Moss, Cepac group sales and marketing director, said the independent corrugated packaging producer tested curved corrugated Arcwise packs with differing specified curvatures alongside regular packs in standard flute grades.

“The curved Arcwise packaging performed better in testing than traditional square packs, standing up to significantly higher load pressures in box crush tests both horizontally and vertically. The enhanced performance means that customers can optimise flute grades on Arcwise products to achieve the same or greater structural rigidity, minimising the amount of packaging and retaining peace of mind that the packs deliver excellent performance.

“Arcwise removes the risk of corner damage, which can occur on traditional boxes in certain applications. The testing shows a marked increase in the longitudinal strength, which helps sustain the top to bottom case performance.

He added that Arcwise eliminated corner displacement and edge distortion during stretch-wrap application that is sometimes found on square-cornered packs where corner voids can crush under increased side load compression.

After receiving positive feedback from Cepac’s wide range of FMCG customers, the patented technology is now being trialled in various markets from industrial packaging and premium gifting.
