Range of plastic sheet options for varying applications

Whilst there is a huge range of plastic material available, GWP Correx® specialise in those that are referred to as “corrugated” or “fluted”.

What this means is that the plastic material is extruded with gaps between the two outer surfaces (the walls). This makes Correx® in particular similar to other materials, and is often referred to as plastic cardboard.

The benefits provided by material of this nature are its increased strength relative to its light weight, low cost, and flexibility in terms of its uses.

Besides standard Correx® sheet, your business can also source Corriplast. This is effectively Correx® material, but impregnated with “carbon black”, which allows for electrical charges to pass along the surface of the material. This can then be used to create a faraday cage effect, protecting static sensitive items.

Finally, there is also the revolutionary Bubbleboard material. Rather than using fluting, this plastic sheet is created with a series of hermetically sealed cells between the outer walls to form its core.

Whilst this provides good bi-directional strength and resistance to twisting, the main benefits of Bubbleboard are the outer laminates that can be applied to it. This includes fabric and foam to prevent scuffing and damage during handling (i.e. if / when used for packaging applications).

Applications for plastic sheet supplied by GWP Correx®

So what are plastic sheet materials of this type used for?

Perhaps the most well know use for material of this type is signage and advertising. Correx® for example is widely used for estate agent signs, bollard covers for supermarket promotions and even health and safety notices on construction sites.

Correx® is also widely used on building sites for floor and wall protection, shuttering and so on.

And of course, these materials can be fabricated to create a range of returnable packaging products, such as totes, picking bins, boxes, dividers, inserts and more.

If you are looking to source plastic sheet material to convert into packaging, then please note GWP will also be able to quote for pre-fabricated items, supplied on a confidential trade agreement. Please get in touch if you would be interested in this service.

Plastic Sheet FAQs

Commonly asked questions regarding sheet materials

Please see below for a list of the most commonly asked questions regarding the plastic sheet and board that GWP stock / supply.

Can’t find the answer to your specific question? No problem! Please contact a member of the GWP team on 01793 754 457 or email correx@gwp.co.uk, who will be happy to help.

What types of plastic are there?

Whilst there are 2 main forms of plastic – thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics (also known as thermosets) – the majority used widely today are the former. Within this there are 6 main types – Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE), Polypropylene (PP) and Polystyrene (PS).

Which of these plastics are available from GWP?

GWP Correx® are able to supply a range of what is known as fluted polypropylene materials. This includes the well-known Correx®, as well as an ESD safe (i.e. anti-static) version known as Corriplast. In addition to this, your business can also source the innovative Bubbleboard material.

What are corrugated plastic sheets used for?

Corrugated plastic is widely used across a number of differing applications. Most commonly, Correx® and other fluted plastic materials are used for signage, including those used by estate agents, supermarkets (i.e. bollard covers), political parties and so on. They are also extensively used as floor protection on construction sites, as well as being fabricated to create a range of reusable transit packaging / handling products.

How long will corrugated plastic / plastic sheets last?

The lifespan of corrugated plastics can vary depending on both use and environment. Used for handling of parts in a factory or other indoor location, Correx® material can last upwards of 5 years (potentially even as long as 20 years). However, if used for a wider supply chain, or as signage that is exposed to the elements, the lifespan can be shortened to between 1 and 2 years.

Are plastic sheets / boards waterproof?

Plastic sheets such as Correx® and Bubble board are resistant to water, making them ideal for outdoor use. They can also be fabricated to create packaging that is largely waterproof too. Typically, Correx® is also chemically inert, will not react  to oils, doesn’t shed fibres, and is easy to clean.

Are plastic sheets flammable?

Whilst there is flame retardant grades of Correx®, standard plastic materials manufactured using polypropylene will be flammable. For details of specific materials (including safety datasheets), please contact a member of the GWP team.

Can you print on corrugated plastic?

The smooth surfaces of Correx® and other plastic materials make them suitable for printing. This is usually achieved using a wide range of inks using either screen printing or digital methods. When combined with the bright material colours (and white ink) this can create some interesting visual effects.
