Al asks (responses are in italic): Are you aware of what mills would produce an .038 CCNB sheet?
Tom’s follow-up questions:
- What is the typical run volume (tons), roll width or sheet size, and annual tonnage estimate?
- Ship to location?
- Is a laminated structure an option? (two .019’s mounted)
- Does it require print, and if so what process will be utilized?
- Is it going to be die cut, and again what process will be used?
- Is it going to be glued, and does it need to have strong bending properties? (For example, a 180 degree pre-break on a gluer)
- 600,000 sheets of 28 x37-1/2 annually
- Shipping to xxxx
- We need to offset print one side 100% coverage a custom color
- It will be die cut on a 28 x 40 format flatbed cutter
- We will be wrapping paper to the news back side of the board and then the end of the wraps will glue to the clay coated side
- I would think E or F Flute would be a proper strength substitute….it may be more in the .045-.065 range.
- You could actually print a light weight Top Sheet, maybe .008 -.012 SBS and have someone mount it. This may be cost effective as well vs all the fiber in .038. I suspect the Print Performance of lightweight SBS combined with the improved quality could potentially offset any price issue(?)
- Alternatively, you could find a supplier that can preprint a 28″ roll with beautiful solid colors on a roll to roll gravure press if they have the capability to combine the materials and sheet to your specs.
