The creative minds at Georgia-Pacific’s Innovation Institute® are pleased to introduce InstiFlute™, a new type of corrugated fluting that provides improved sustainability, superior printing, and more efficient logistics. Some potential enhancements InstiFlute™ offers to our customers:
- Reduce in-bound corrugated shipments by 20%
- Reduce warehousing space used for corrugated
- Reduce material handling in plant
- Improve carbon footprint
- Less crushing for heavy cans and bottles
- Improve graphics
- Better perforation performance
- Retail Ready Packaging functionality
- Heavily printed cases
- Perforated cases
- Retail Ready Packaging
- Self-supporting products
InstiFlute™ falls between B-Flute and E-flute in caliper and flutes per foot. With the increased flutes per foot, InstiFlute’s surface allows for better printing.

Proven to share a similar edge crush test (ECT) performance as B-Flute, this flute profile has increased flat crush resistance for heavy cans or bottles.
InstiFlute™ is an ideal flute profile in packaging solutions used for self-supporting or load-sharing products such as these example applications:
