02: Technical Specification & Features.

Performance data for Correx® material

Please see below for the specific performance / properties of Correx® material, or download the product datasheet below for a full list of sizes and details.

Characteristics

  • Softening temperature (BS2782: 102D ISO 1306) 85°C
  • Crystalline melting point 160 – 175°C
  • Flash ignition temperature c a 350°C
  • Self ignition temperature ca 380°C
  • Calorific value 11000 cal.kg
  • Specific heat 0.46 cal/gm°C
  • Limiting oxygen index (ASTM D 2863) 0.174 – 0.180
  • Burn rate (FMVSS 302) 5.3 – 8.2 cm/min

Temperatures

Correx® Sheet is made from ethylene propylene copolymer which is resistant to impact. At normal operating temperatures ranging from approximately 0’C to 85’C a high level of impact resistance is expected.

Above 85’C the material starts to soften, increasing the impact performance but at the same time losing structural strength. The material will continue to soften until approximately 140’C where the polymer begins to melt.

At temperatures below 0’C Correx® sheet becomes more rigid but at the same time becomes more brittle.

At -18’C the impact strength is reduced by approximately 10%. No measurements have been taken for impact performance below -18’C in Correx® sheet but other industries routinely use polypropylene copolymer at temperatures down to -30’C e.g. for ice cream tubs.

Down to temperatures around -30’C one can expect the structure of Correx® to remain intact so long as the product is not subjected to unreasonable treatment. One would expect Correx® boxes to perform well in an environment such as on shelves, single stacked.

04: What is Correx® Sheet?

Plastic material used in a wide range of industries / applications

Correx® is a specific type of corrugated plastic sheet, which is now in widespread use across much of Europe.

It is an extruded, twin wall, fluted polypropylene sheet material, which can also have numerous additives included during the manufacturing process to provide specific properties including flame retardant and UV resistant.

Colours can also be added to the base polymer to achieve a wide variety of colours.

It is widely used in a large number of industries as it is more durable and long lasting that corrugated cardboard, lighter than wood and is resistant to water and most chemicals.

Correx sheet material
GWP Correx® hold a wide range of sizes, thicknesses and colours of Correx material in stock for immediate dispatch

It is also usable at low temperatures, easy to die-cut and weld, and is fully recyclable. This makes it the ideal material for applications, such as reusable packaging manufacture for a wide range of market sectors.

As well as standard Correx® sheets, GWP is also able to offer you board and products manufactured from cloth covered Correx®.

By providing all the benefits of standard Correx®, such as strength, rigidity, a long lifespan, easy fabrication, resistance to water and much else, cloth covered Correx® goes one step further by providing additional protection to any surfaces coming into contact with it.

This is particularly important for any product with a highly polished painted or delicate surface finish.

06: About GWP Correx®.

A material supplier with a difference

GWP Correx® are predominantly packaging manufacturers. We design and manufacture handling products such as totes and difviders, storage products such as picking bins, and even printed packaging boxes for consumer markets.

So why are we advertising sheet material?

Well, in order to ensure we can always offer the shortest possible lead times on our range of fabricated products, we keep an extensive stock holding of Corre material in stock at our manufacturing facility.

Correx products in stock
GWP Correx® design, manufacture and stock hold a vast array of returnable and multi use products

As a result, it means you are able to source material straight from this stock holding. This actually solves a number of issues that you may experience with other material suppliers.

MOQs? No, you can order the exact amount you need, in high or low volumes. Long lead times? No, as it’s in stock, you can normally get it within 48 hours. Range of colours / sizes? Whilst we do maintain a number of different thicknesses and colours, if we do not have stock of your specific requirement, we can usually source it for you quickly and cost effectively.

Couple this with custom sizes (as our manufacturing capability allows us to cut sheets to whatever size you need) plus offering you a wide range of pre-fabricated products (saving you time / effort), and it makes sense to source your Correx® material from GWP.
