▪ paper product
      cheap cardboard or paperboard (paper) used as backing for photographs or in making cartons and boxes where strength and appearance are not essential. Chipboard is made of mixed, unbleached paper stock in thicknesses of 0.006 inch (0.15 mm) and up. One or both surfaces may be coated with manila paper to make folding cartons for cigarettes, cereal, and hardware. Manila-coated chipboard also may be impregnated with wax or paraffin for paper plates or lined with greaseproof paper for sausage and bacon cartons. Chipboard lined with newspaper stock is used for shirt boards and inexpensive boxes; lined with fancy paper, it is employed in candy and cosmetic boxes. In Britain chipboard refers to planks of pressurized wood clippings, usually veneered, used in furniture manufacture.
