Cartonboard in perfections
The design details are impressive: the unique cutting edge is made of cartonboard, so that the entire folded box can be disposed of without removing the cutting edge. It provides easy, safe and consistently straight cutting.
This looked like a conventional foil carton but the judges then saw that the cutting strip was not made of the usual plastic or metal but of paper. This was they felt sure the first time they had seen this in use. It worked very well in cutting the foil and in addition the carton was designed with lugs that could be pushed in from the ends to hold the tube more securely so making dispensing easier. The carton was also designed to be easily refillable. With the paper tear strip this carton was now made entirely of cartonboard and had no other material so simplifying recycling.
