A quick look at the formula used for calculating Corrugate Board [Cardboard] weights:

Outside Liner + Inside Liner = X

Medium x (board value) = Y

Adhesion (2lbs s/w; 4lbs d/w) = Z

 

[ X + Y + Z ]/1000 = lbs/sf

 

Board Values:

B flute = 1.34     |     C flute = 1.43

E flute = 1.27     |     F flute = 1.20
