What Corflute Sheets Are Most Commonly Used For

Environment,Home Improvement,Science & Technology
Eco-friendly corflute has versatile uses ranging from advertising signs, the building and construction industry, insulating and waterproofing solutions, do it yourself projects and hobbies. Similar to corrugated fiberboard, the tough, corrugated plastic can withstand common outdoor elements such as water, dirt, grease, chemicals, and fluctuating temperatures over long periods. Corflute sheets come in many colors and thickness. They can be custom made with additives such as glazing, steel, aluminum, and corrugated substrates for specific applications. Individual consumers also have found creative solutions using this popular material.

Corflute sheets are the material of choice for the screen printing industry. Being lightweight, easy to die-cut, and favorably accept the inks used in printing outdoor signs, for example, used by realtors and politicians. This beautiful substrate also enhances the appearance of product exhibits and point-of-sale displays.

Containers and reusable packaging materials are made from corflute sheets. Postal totes and glass storage containers are made from it. Sensitive electronic products need conductive, anti-static grade packaging. Produce and plant boxes need wet strength. Its easy folding characteristics and ideal weight to strength ratio make this durable material a cost efficient choice in the collapsible bulk bin market.

The building and construction industry uses corflute sheets for waterproofing, protecting surfaces like walls and floors against damage during construction, and low level thermal insulation. Its flexible membrane makes it a logical choice as thin walls because it can withstand typical building movements. The corrugated channels in the interior of the sheets allow a stream of air to move through and transfer heat from the warm side to the cold without mixing the two streams of air. The space between the two layers of polymer that connect the flutes provides insulation for heat and electricity. A custom, corflute sheet can withstand temperatures up to 152 degrees Fahrenheit.

This inexpensive and easy to work with material can be an ideal DIY solution in older homes that have many spaces where air travels freely to and from the outside. The sheets can be used as added waterproofing and insulation when applied underneath subfloors of a house with a crawlspace or basement foundation. Temporary security windows, tree guards and root barriers in landscaping can be made from them.

Versatility and low cost are only two of the advantages of corflute sheets. It can be easily cut with a utility or craft knife and shaped using saws or rotary cutters and scissors. It can be joined using click rivets, tape, or hot or low melt glue. Additives like custom colors, flame retardant, and corrosive inhibitors can be melt-blended to standard sheets to modify them for the end user's specific needs. They are quite popular, for example, used to build SPAD (Simple Plastic Airplane Design) model aircraft.

Consumers have become quite creative with corflute sheets. Animal lovers use it as a component of a type of DIY small pet cage for animals like rabbits and guinea pigs. Making a lightweight bike box for occasional travel with a bicycle can save money on luggage fees, and its collapsible design makes it easy to store between trips. One mother made her daughter a slant board to help ease the strain on her wrist muscles and joints when writing. Military wives enjoy using them to make Burma Shave type signs welcoming their loved one home from long deployments.
