ENV-3000™ Ultrasmooth Chipboard Partitions

The exceptionally smooth finish on Bradford ENV-3000® specialty protective packaging makes it a step up from regular chipboard. This provides excellent resistance to abrasion and scuffing. The smooth finish is accomplished in the manufacturing process, with no special coatings subsequently applied.

ENV-3000 advantages
  • recyclable
  • ultra-smooth finish
  • excellent resistance to abrasion and scuffing
  • cost-saving alternative to polycoated chipboard/paperboard
  • in stock for just-in-time shipping
ENV-3000 is ideal for
  • automotive, appliance, and class A parts partition dividers

Polycoated Chipboard Partitions

Bradford high quality polycoated chipboard and paperboard feature a thin coating of low density polyethylene on both sides of the board.

Polycoated chipboard makes great protective packaging for automotive, appliance, and other painted/chromed or sensitive parts.

Polycoated advantages
  • Class A protectant for customer-visible surfaces
  • protection against abrasion and scuffing
  • moisture resistant
  • cost-saving alternative to labor-intensive bagging and/or masking
  • a wide range of in-stock calipers from .018–.080


This material has a very durable, puncture-resistant surface. The surface will outperform most other plastic materials for wear durability. It is a great low-cost alternative to plastic partitions.

XDS-1000 Advantages
  • Surface durability
  • Puncture/wear-resistant surface
  • In stock with short lead time
  • Cost-saving alternative to plastic materials
  • Recyclable


Bradford’s exclusive FabriKraft® specialty paperboard provides the most effective protective packaging for parts with highly sensitive finishes. This high quality paperboard base is laminated with a spun-bonded polyolefin, providing exceptional protection against abrasion and scuffing. FabriKraft® is made with the same technology used to produce eyeglass lens wipes.

FabriKraft® advantages
  • laminated with a spun-bonded polyolefin
  • exceptional protection against abrasion and scuffing

SBS and Polymilk Chipboard Partitions

Bradford SBS and polymilk chipboard is made from fully bleached virgin fiber that results in a clean, solid white product—not just a colored top coating. The surface is smoother, making it conducive for high quality printing. The chemical formulation resists tarnishing, and because of its higher density, SBS and polymilk cut cleaner to make great looking dividers for retail, pharmaceutical and consumer products.

SBS paperboard and polymilk advantages
  • smoother, cleaner surface
  • conducive for high quality printing
  • chemical formulation resists tarnishing
  • cuts cleanly due to its higher density
SBS paperboard and polymilk are ideal for
  • printed packaging
  • consumer packaging such as retail, pharmaceutical
