The strength of Extruded VBoard®, made from durable extruded plastic, provides exceptional protection against damaging conditions encountered throughout a shipping and distribution cycle. It is 100% waterproof edge protection for packaging, ideal for humid, wet indoor and outdoor environments. Extruded VBoard is also ideal storage and flatbed truck transport for products such as produce, steel and lumber.
Extruded VBoard holds tighter tolerances than paper VBoard, especially in 90-degree angles. It also takes up less space than paper edge protection for a given amount of strength. It features a professional, high-quality, smooth black appearance and is available in VBoard and VGuard® configurations.
- Standard sizes are available in leg lengths of 1.75″ x 1.75″ and 2.5″ x 2.5″, with calipers of 0.060″, 0.090″ and 0.120″
- Custom-extruded shapes can be developed for large-volume applications
Your Laminations account manager will recommend the appropriate caliper for your Extruded VBoard application, as plastic responds differently than paper to various stresses. Actual trial usage is recommended for each new application.
