Cardboard Butt-Pad

Cardboard corner protectors are elements used in the packaging and protection of goods during transportation and storage. These are profiles or corners made of strong, rigid cardboard, specifically designed to reinforce and protect the edges and corners of boxes, pallets and other types of packaging.

These corner protectors function as a protective shield that prevents damage and shocks that could occur during handling and transportation of products. By placing the corner pieces on the edges of the packages, a barrier is created that absorbs and distributes the impact force, minimizing the risk of deformation, crushing or breakage of the goods.

Their versatile design allows them to adapt to different packaging sizes and shapes, and they can be found in various presentations, such as simple cardboard corner protectors, adhesive-reinforced corner protectors or corner protectors with inner padding to protect more delicate objects. In addition, they are environmentally friendly, since their material, cardboard, is recyclable and biodegradable.

Benefits of cardboard corner protectors

Cardboard corner protectors offer a number of significant advantages that make them a preferred choice for packaging and transporting goods:


  • Replaces expensive packaging material: By using cardboard corner protectors instead of other more expensive materials, such as plastic or metal, considerable savings in packaging costs are achieved without compromising the protection and strength of the package.
  • Savings in materials and labor: Cardboard corner protectors are easy to produce and will require fewer resources compared to other more elaborate packaging materials. In addition, their versatile design and ease of assembly reduce the time and labor required to package the products.
  • Environmentally friendly: Cardboard is a biodegradable and recyclable material, which means that cardboard corner protectors have a lower environmental impact compared to non-biodegradable materials. Opting for this type of packaging helps reduce plastic waste generation and promotes sustainability.
  • Shipping without additional treatments: Unlike wood used in pallets, which requires special treatments such as fumigation to comply with import regulations in some countries, cardboard cornerboards can be shipped anywhere in the world without additional treatments, simplifying logistics and customs processes.
  • Optimization of transport space by stacking pallets: The cardboard corner pieces allow the corners and edges of pallets to be reinforced, which facilitates safe and stable stacking of loads, thus optimizing space inside containers and transport trucks. This translates into greater distribution efficiency and fewer trips to transport a given quantity of products.
  • Reinforces packaging and minimizes shipping damage: By using cardboard corner protectors, an additional layer of protection is added to packages and goods. These rigid and resistant corner pieces help absorb impacts and distribute the force, minimizing damage and ensuring that products reach their destination in optimal condition.
