From Swedish dialectal paff ("cardboard"), compare standard Swedish papp.




  1. Relatively thick and stiff cardboard. According to paper industry standards, pahvi weighs at least 250 g/sq.m.
  2. A versatile woodfibre-based packaging material produced by combining cardboard, fluting and/or paper. The usage of both Finnish and English terms is rather incoherent, but e.g. cardboard, corrugated board, paperboard and pasteboard may apply as translations for pahvi.
