Enter the corrugated  board length (in), the corrugated board width (in), and the corrugated board thickness (in) into the Corrugated Board Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Corrugated Board Weight. 

Corrugated Board Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Corrugated Board Weight. 

CBW = BL * BW * BT * D


  • CBW is the Corrugated Board Weight (lbs)
  • BL is the corrugated  board length (in) 
  • BW is the corrugated board width (in) 
  • BT is the corrugated board thickness (in) 
  • D is the density = 0.00270955 lb/in^3

How to Calculate Corrugated Board Weight?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Corrugated Board Weight.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the corrugated  board length (in).
    • The corrugated  board length (in) is calculated to be : 30.
  2. Next, determine the corrugated board width (in).
    • The corrugated board width (in) is measured to be: 20.
  3. Next, determine the corrugated board thickness (in).
    • The corrugated board thickness (in) is found to be: 2.
  4. Finally, calculate the Corrugated Board Weight using the formula above: 

CBW = BL * BW * BT * D

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

CBW = 30 * 20 * 2 * 0.00270955 = 3.251 (lbs)

Example Problem #2

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

corrugated  board length (in) = 40

corrugated board width (in) = 50

corrugated board thickness (in) = 2

Test your knowledge and check your answer with the calculator.

CBW = BL * BW * BT * D = (lbs)
