Coated corrugated cardboard for UK Sheet Plants

Specialist board coatings – effectively coated cardboard – for trade customers is, in essence, what we do. Saying that, we constantly strive to achieve innovative and cost-effective packaging solutions where there is a need for an additional surface coating onto corrugated board.

Our approach and experience allows us to offer the leading solutions that also take account of environmental, commercial and budget considerations.

We aim to make life for our clients as simple as possible – choose your coating and we apply it onto the selected corrugated board or packaging product. It’s as simple as that!

That’s we are known in the industry as the leading coaters onto corrugated board.

01: Cardboard Coatings

Specialist coatings onto corrugated cardboard, in high and low volumes

Please use the links below to view the full range specialist corrugated cardboard coatings you can source for use at your sheet plant / conversion facility. Please click on the images or titles for full details.

Liquiguard waterproof cardboard coating


Water and oil resistant cardboard

Liquiguard coating is a water and oil resistant coating that has been developed for use across various industries.

Typical applications are for wet and oily products such as meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and flowers, and it is also used successfully in moving automotive and industrial components that are greasy.

Spectrumcoat pantone colour flood coating


Pantone matched flood coating

Spectrumcoat is an overall, colour flood coating that has been developed for use predominantly in retail / Point of Sale display industries.

Spectrumcoat is available from 500 sq. metres, and can matched to your specific Pantone reference, ensuring brand guidelines are adhered to, and offering consistency across your full packaging inventory.

Corstat conductive ESD cardboard


ESD cardboard for static protection

Boxes and containers coated with our conductive Corstat coating are easily converted on standard machinery.

The results give durable anti static packaging that is cheaper than conductive plastic or fibreboard alternatives, and is used by virtually every OEM electronics manufacturer.

Nomar anti abrasive coating


Anti abrasion coating to protect surfaces

This form of coating is used to protect packaged articles from scratching caused by rubbing against the inside of the corrugated shipping container, offering an excellent non abrasive packaging solution.

This makes it ideal for protecting painted or highly polished surfaces, as well as printed packaging for luxury products.

Anti corrosion VCI packaging


Corrosion inhibitor (VCI) for metal items

Bio VCI coating provides cost effective protection using a corrugated cardboard with a vapour corrosion inhibitor (VCI).

This in turn can improve productivity through the elimination of secondary packaging, as well providing exceptionally high levels of protection for metal items during transit.

02: Die Cutting Supplies

Equipment and consumables for common die cutting set-ups

Besides the range of coated cardboard available, you can also choose from a range of die cutting consumables. Please click below for further details / info.

Die cutting consumables and supplies


Die cutting equipment for sheet plants

Besides the comprehensive range of corrugated board coatings, your sheet plant can source a wide range of consumable products for Baysek, U-Pack and T-series die cutting equipment.

By sourcing both consumables and coated board together, you can reduce admin and paperwork, as well as ensuring excellent compatibility and high quality.

03: Additional Information.

Lead times and manufacturing processes

While holding large stocks of specialist coatings, inks and corrugated board allows you to source low volumes competitively, it also allows you to take delivery of coated cardboard on exceptionally short lead times.

Whether coating board held in stock by GWP Coatings, or supplied to us by you (the method favoured by a large number of sheet plants), our efficient production facility and highly trained staff ensure that both high and low volumes can be completed and supplied on exceptionally short lead times.

Coated cardboard quality control
All coated cardboard manufactured at GWP undergoes strict quality processes and checking, ensuring consistent high quality material.

By using our in house coating machines, operated by skilled technicians with vast experience, you are guaranteed both performance and consistency of colour.

By operating more than a single coating machine, it allows further reductions in lead times and also means you can source material with multiple coatings (for example a flood colour coating and waterproofing corrugated) just as effectively.

Corstat / ESD Coating

GWP Coatings also have a dedicated coater for Corstat ESD cardboard – ensuring that critical performance levels are never compromised on the finished Corstat boards.

Low & high volume coating

As the UK leaders in applying specialist coatings to corrugated cardboard, you may think that GWP can only help with large orders and high volumes.

However, you are able to specify all of the specialist coatings from runs starting as low as 200 square metres. This makes it an exceptionally cost effective service for practically any sheet plant or converter.

Low and high volume coated cardboard
Utilising multiple coating machines, GWP can ensure the highest quality and performance (e.g. with Corstat ESD cardboard) as well as the ability to offer high and low volumes.

As GWP Coatings keep an extensive stock holding of all the coatings, plus a huge range of inks that means you can specify  (again if on shorter runs), our operations are flexible enough to provide these short runs, or indeed very large volumes, whilst maintaining very competitive prices.
