Why use - or switch to - reusable Correx® boxes and packaging?
Using Correx® boxes instead of corrugated cardboard packaging is a must for specific applications and an interesting alternative for others.
Providing a durable alternative to cardboard – and often more cost-effective when looking at long-term rather than upfront costs – you can source custom Correx® corrugated plastic boxes in both high and low volumes. You can also select from various customisation options, including plastic inserts and dividers, handles, external printing & even different material options.
Correx® is also considerably harder wearing than cardboard and resistant to moisture, chemicals etc. These properties make it a more suitable choice for multi-trip and supply chain applications. It also offers easy clean surfaces and doesn’t shed fibres, making it ideal for medical packaging, pharmaceutical, and clean room boxes.
However, with a range of colours and print options, you can also use Correx® boxes for retail and consumer applications. In fact, they are perfect for use as “added value” packaging (i.e., the end user will keep them for ongoing storage or other uses).
Another notable benefit – certainly when compared with moulded plastic boxes and containers – is that by choosing Correx®, you can work with a team of designers who can create your Correx® boxes to virtually any size and design. Ultimately, this allows you to tailor your solution to your specific requirements.
Printed Correx® boxes
There are several ways in which you can enhance Correx® boxes, be it for cleanroom use, consumer packaging, or even delivery boxes for your fast-food business.
Firstly, there are several print options available for Correx®.
Businesses commonly use a simple one-or two-colour screen print to create logos and branding. Whilst this may not sound particularly exciting, using bold colours against the equally bright Correx® can produce surprisingly impactful results.
If this isn’t suitable, however, it is possible to add full digital print to Correx®, allowing you the freedom to add whatever graphics, imagery, and text you wish.
As a cheaper alternative to printing, you can apply labelling and vinyl graphics to Correx® boxes too. The smooth surfaces mean any graphics adhere very well to the packaging, and they are generally tough and durable once applied.
The application of labels or vinyl can be relatively labour-intensive, so print is often the most economical option depending on the volumes you are looking to produce.
Custom Correx® box options
Besides branding, you can also tailor and enhance the functionality of your Correx® boxes. The use of inserts and dividers, for example, can have several benefits.
They can help protect the pack’s contents during transit by minimising movement. Besides this, you can often use the same insert or fitting to present the product when customers or end users first open the box.
Correx® boxes with dividers also allow for safe product storage on an ongoing basis (meaning the end user is much more likely to retain the pack). You can also use dividers for sending multiple items in a single pack, and you can take advantage of specialist materials such as Bubble-board or foam to protect delicate surfaces.
Alongside Correx® box dividers and inserts, it is possible to engineer handles directly into your Correx® packaging. You can even choose to add these after using a range of moulded plastic components and fixtures.
Similar options also extend to other elements, such as catches, poppers, stacking corners, hand holes and more, which means your Correx® packaging can be incredibly practical and visually striking.

What is Correx®?
Correx® is a fluted (i.e. non solid) polypropylene material that many people refer to as “plastic cardboard”. Estate agents commonly use it for their signs, and use in construction (i.e. for floor or surface protection) is also commonplace. However, like cardboard, it allows for fabricating a wide range of packaging and handling products.
What types of Correx® boxes are available?
GWP can manufacture Correx® boxes in a vast range of styles and almost limitless sizes. Options include plastic shipping boxes, glass storage totes, retail packaging, postal and mailing boxes, carry cases, specialist clean room options, returnable eCommerce packaging, and many more. You can also choose from virtually all FEFCO styles.
Why should I use Correx® boxes instead of cardboard?
Whilst Correx® allows for manufacturing many of the same products as cardboard (particularly die-cut packaging), it has several inherent advantages. These benefits include a much longer lifespan, greater strength, smooth surfaces that you can easily clean, and resistance to water, grease, chemicals etc.
Can Correx® boxes be printed?
You can choose to print Correx® boxes in a number of ways, including simple screen printing (for one- or two-colour logos) and full-colour digital print. Printed Correx® boxes allow the addition of your branding, safety info, and other instructions.
Can I include fittings or foam inserts with my Correx® boxes?
Can I have a custom designed Correx® box?
It may seem obvious, but you can opt to have Correx® packaging designed and manufactured in a vast range of ways. This flexibility can lead to the creation of carry cases, glass boxes with dividers, standard retail boxes, containers with lids, and a wide range of sizes, styles, and designs.
Are there any stock or standard-sized Correx® boxes available?
Whilst it is possible to manufacture Correx® packaging to virtually all of the recognised FEFCO layouts, GWP does not keep a stock holding of prefabricated boxes. Instead, GWP manufactures everything bespoke to your exact requirements. This approach ensures you benefit from a custom design tailored to your product, market, or application.
Are Correx® boxes waterproof?
Correx® material is resistant to water, meaning that Correx® boxes are typically “weatherproof”. However, your box’s style and design can impact whether it keeps the contents fully protected from water ingress (although it is possible to create waterproof containers if required).
Can Correx® boxes be reused?
One of the main benefits of Correx® boxes is that you can reuse them over hundreds of trips. This durability – and often the ability to fold flat for the return journey – can mean that corrugated plastic boxes frequently have a lower environmental impact and overall cost than single-trip corrugated packaging.
Can Correx® boxes be recycled?
Being made from polypropylene, you can typically recycle Correx® boxes at the end of their usable lifespan. Please note, however, that the material is not commonly accepted in kerbside recycling (instead, needing specialist recycling centres).
