How Humidity and Temperature Affect Boxes
Humidity, which is strongly influenced by temperature, is a huge factor to consider when designing packaging to transport and store food products like dairy and beverages.
Corrugated is an excellent choice! To help maintain their integrity, store boxes at:
- 40% to 70% relative humidity
- 40°F to 100°F temperatures
When ideal storage conditions aren’t available and top performance is still required, there are three ways to boost box performance:
- Use paper made with virgin fibers.
- Add a resin to the adhesive.
- Use stronger and/or heavier paper.
