What is Vboard?

Vboard, commonly referred to as corner board, is a tough, paper-based edge protector designed to give additional strength and wear protection to the edges of bulk packaging and pallets. It’s most used as reinforcements on palletized freight and mostly used as protective packaging. They are particularly useful for protection during transportation and shipping as they provide additional structure to pallets when they are secured.


Product Options and Advantages?

Vboard can be customized in several ways to make it ideal for any product and/or application. It can be purchased in various thicknesses and lengths to match any custom bulk packaging that you may be using. It is also offered in various colors if that is required by your application.  

One of the more common applications of vboard is its use to stabilize roll stock. If you’re using stretch to palletize your product before shipping, vboard is often added to the corners of the palletized product to alleviate pressure from the stretch on the product and stabilize the entire pallet.
