You promise shipping operations rain or shine. Your workers and your vehicles can handle the demands — but can your packaging materials?
That’s why Packaging HERO® carries weather-resistant cardboard boxes. Available in wholesale quantities and a range of sizes, this corrugated shipping option holds strong through humidity, damp and wet conditions without disintegrating or exposing the contents inside. In turn, our weather-resistant boxes aren’t just durable — they provide the resistance necessary for shipping supplies to the military.

How Do Weather-Resistant Cardboard Boxes Work?
Plastic mailers don’t work for everything — and that’s not factoring in the environmental impact. Yet, standard cardboard or corrugated materials, due to construction, start to break down or get soft when exposed to varying degrees of moisture. When this happens, the customer’s items become vulnerable to the weather and subsequent damage.
Weather-resistant cardboard boxes work against this pattern, starting with the adhesive.
Corrugate traditionally begins with wood fibers, which are moisture resistant to a point. We pair this with water-resistant adhesive (WRA), as opposed to the typical starch-based solution that’s not designed to handle high levels of or prolonged exposure to humidity. Through these components, water-resistant boxes withstand a broader range of storage and transport conditions.
