Surely, plastic food containers are always about 20% cheaper than paper food containers. But when you look back, this will negligible when compared to the effect it might have on our beloved planet.
Before going into different types of paperboard, let us understand what is paperboard? A paperboard is technical, a mat of interlaced network f cellulose fibers. This multi-layer becomes a mat of smooth paper. The paper mat up to 170 gsm is called Paper, and above 170 gsm it is paperboard.
Based on the processing techniques, there are 4 basic types of paperboards,
a. White Lined Chipboard (WLC)
b. Solid Bleached Board or sulfate (SBB / SBS)
c. Folding Boxboard (FBB)
d. Coated Unbleached Kraft board (CUK)
FBB paperboard is made from Virgin fibers, so it is suitable for food packaging. We disposable paper food container manufacturers, use only high-quality food-grade FBB paperboard to make the round paper containers. There are a lot of benefits of using FBB paperboards, they are flexible, easy to print, and easy to handle. These types of paperboards can be used in microwaves, can be refrigerated, and can be used to store dry goods as well.
The next step in the process of making disposable paper food containers is getting the paper blanks. Blanks are cut pieces of paper, which is of specific design and size. Based on these designs, disposable paper food container manufacturers get the desired bowl sizes. 2 oz will have a smaller blank and gets bigger as the size goes bigger.
Paperboards; come in big paper roll format. These big rolls are then cut into the blanks. Metal molds are made with careful calculation, and to perfection to get the blank-shaped molds. Paper rolls are fed to the machines, which cut the paper into blanks.
These paper packaging can also be customized to the brand requirements of the customer. Printing designs are also done in this phase. Along with cutting into blanks, brand printing is also done on these blanks.
Disposable paper container manufacturers have different machines for the different sized disposable food bowls. The machines usually have 2 input paper. One is the blanks that we saw earlier, and the other one is the paper bottom roll.
In the first inlet, paper blanks are stacked one on top of the other. The machines pull these blanks one after the other and sent them to the heat sealing point. Ultrasonic then seals the ends of these blanks and makes them into a cylindrical-shaped hallow container without a bottom at this moment.
The mold holding the shape of containers then moves toward the bottom feeder, the bottom is a paper roll. The paper roll is heat-sealed to the disposable paper food bowls.
