Bending Chipboard

A flexible type of chipboard that can be easily bent or folded without cracking, used for book covers and packaging.

Laminated Sheets

Paperboard sheets bonded with layers of glue or other materials to enhance strength, durability, or moisture resistance.

Layer Sheets

Similar to pallet sheets, used within layers of stacked products for added stability and protection.


Robust, flat paperboard pieces used for cushioning, layering, stabilization, and protection against abrasion and nail protrusions for packaged products. Pads serve as an alternative to corrugated sheets when used as pallet liners.

Pallet Sheets

Positioned directly on the pallet surface to safeguard against abrasion and nail punctures; a cost-effective and sturdier alternative to corrugated sheets. They serve to distribute weight and shield the goods stacked on pallets.

Paper Pulp

Raw material made from wood, recycled paper, or other fibrous materials, used to make paper and paperboard.


A thick, paper-based material used for packaging, heavier than standard paper and can be single or multi-ply. Paperboard can include solid fiber (unrecycled) and chipboard (recycled) materials.

Push-Pull Sheets

Specially designed slip sheets for use with push-pull material handling equipment, allowing for the handling of goods without pallets.


Flat pieces of paperboard used as a base for creating packaging products and adding stability to pallets during shipping.

Slip Sheets

Thin pallet-sized sheets used in combination with, or instead of, wooden pallets, made from plastic, paperboard, or fiber.

Solid Bleached Sulfate (SBS)

A high-quality, smooth, and white paperboard made from bleached virgin wood pulp, used in premium packaging.

A strong, dense paperboard made by compressing layers of paper together, used for heavy-duty packaging. Solid fiber substrates come from virgin (unrecycled) materials.

Strap Protectors

Small pieces of material placed under straps on packaged goods to prevent damage from the straps.

Tier Sheets

Sheets used between tiers or layers of products on a pallet to stabilize and protect the products during transport.

Uncoated Newsback

Recycled paperboard not coated with clay, typically used for less visually demanding packaging.


The state that’s the real heart of it all (in our humble opinion) – where Badger Paperboard got its start and has its roots.
