If you need a tough, weather resistant, cost effective solution for your outdoor signage or point of sale display, it’s hard to go past corrugated plastic.
In scientific terms, corrugated plastic is a polypropylene co-polymer that has a high chemical resistance. Additional components can be added to make the plastic UV resistant, fire resistant or even anti-static.
This hard wearing product goes by many names including Corflute, Coroplast, Correx, Corriflute, FlutePlast, IntePro, Polyflute, Proplex, and Twinplast. It comes in a wide range of sizes, thicknesses and colours, and can be screen printed making it a perfect solution for your advertising needs.
