Retail Packaging Materials Terminology
The following are some terms related to retail packaging materials:

Anti-slip Paper: Anti-slip paper is most often used between rolls of paper, pallets, and boxes to prevent them from sliding around during shipment. This packaging material is actually non-woven fleece, not paper.

Blister Packs: Blister packs are used for individually sealing a finished product. This packaging material is typically made from plastic and must be specially designed to accommodate a specific product. Some blister packs have a thin metal backing and others have a solid plastic backing. A variety of items can come in blister packs, from cold gel caps to prepaid cellular phones.

Cellophane: Cellophane is a particular packaging material created from wood pulp. This packaging material is often thin and clear, but not all thin, clear packaging material is cellophane.

Corrugated: A corrugated packaging material has a flat board with fluting and a liner attached to it. Many cardboard boxes and cartons are corrugated for increased stability and durability.

Flutes: Flutes are specially designed rolls or arches that are attached to a board and a liner. This finished product is a corrugated packaging material. The flutes are the part of the corrugated packaging material that contributes to the material’s increased stability and durability. Flutes also offer a limited amount of insulation.

PET: PET is a general term referring to any polyester material that has not been specially treated. PET can be coated with PVDC to improve how well it repels moisture and oxygen. Met, or metallized, is PET that has been coated with aluminum. This coating improves the material’s resistance to moisture, oxygen, and ultraviolet light.
