Paperboard Slip Sheets

Save money, space, and time by transitioning from traditional corrugated to heavy duty paperboard.


Heavy-Duty Paperboard

Made in the USA from recycled materials, paperboard slip sheets protect palletized products from damage during storage, handling, and shipping. Our lightweight, cost-effective sheets defend bagged materials against punctures and tears caused by pallet nails and deckboards. The high strength paperboard fibers serve as a moisture-resistant barrier between the ground and your product preventing mold and mildew.

How to Measure Board Thickness with a Micrometer

Slip sheet cost is determined by three basic factors: material type, board size, and board thickness. Oftentimes, our customers are unaware of the board thickness they require.

Using a micrometer measurement tool, place the board between the micrometer. Shown here is a piece of paperboard being measured. This particular sheet is measured at 0.037 or 37 point.
