What is corflute? An easy to understand guide to corrugated plastic
Ever heard the term “corflute” before and wondered what it referred to? Fear not, we have all the answers in this article.
Corflute is the industry name given to corrugated polypropylene, a fluted plastic which is lightweight yet rigid. The plastic is extruded to give it the large rectangular flutes all the way through it, and it has medium outdoor longevity. The name “Corflute” is actually registered to Corex but the industry has picked it up and now uses it as a generic term for fluted plastic.
The reason the sign industry loves it is because it’s cheap and easy to cut to size. It also can be used for freestanding A-frames due to its inherent strength. It comes in a variety of thicknesses but the most common for the sign industry are 3mm and 5mm. It comes in most standard colours (black, white, red, green, blue and yellow) however white is the most common.
The packaging industry and construction industry also use corflute for creating boxes or for packing out or protecting large areas. The standard sheet size is 2400mm x 1200mm although sheets can be found up to three metres long.
