AICC Releases 3rd Edition Of Brochure On Linerboard, Medium AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, has re- leased the third edition of Understanding the Key Char- acteristics of Linerboard and Medium and their Impact on Combined Corrugated Board. The 12-page brochure of- fers descriptions of key performance attributes and how they impact box performance. The materials are compre- hensive and will benefit those in sales, production, de- sign, purchasing, customer service, and quality control. “AICC members are seeking quantitative ways to com- pare containerboard quality from various suppliers,” said AICC President Michael D’Angelo. This could become even more important as supply chains evolve as a result of the current crisis.” Informed members can ask suppliers to provide addi- tional information about performance attributes not gen- erally included on a standard roll stock label. The tem- plates included with the publication contain descriptions of performance tests, as well as industry-standard ranges of acceptable measurements. “We believe this will be an important tool for AICC members as they work with their suppliers and custom- ers to provide better-engineered corrugated packaging,” said author, Ralph Young, Principal of Alternative Paper Solutions and AICC Corrugated Technical Advisor. “When

the industry began using ECT grades nearly 30 years ago, the responsibility for performance moved away from the mill and downstream toward the combining and con- verting operation. This publication will help sheet plants better understand the combined board they are receiv- ing from their sheet supply network.” Electronic copies are available in English and Span- ish for $35 for AICC members and $50 for nonmembers.
