Why Corrugated Plastic Is Best For Storing Old Items Away

Organizing,Home Improvement
Polypropylene plastic sheeting is used to make a wide range of packaging materials including corrugated plastic boxes for storage purposes. It is very strong and lightweight and is the optimum choice for people who need to store automotive parts, electronic components, agricultural products and much more. The boxes are washable and reusable.

Corrugation is a ribbed or fluted wave pattern that is pressed into the plastic sheeting. This is glued to a flat layer of the same substance creating a strong material. At normal temperatures most solvents, oils and water have no effect on the storage boxes. They can withstand extreme temperatures from -17 degrees F to 230 degrees F. Some of the additives and enhancements that are used to modify the plastic are:

• Flame retardant • Ultraviolet protection • Static resistance • Corrosion inhibitors • Mold inhibitors

The containers resist a wide range of chemicals and can be sterilized. This makes them suitable for pharmaceutical, clean-room, biotech, manufacturing and electronic storage environments. They are also archival-quality for storing documents, textiles, photographs and artifacts.

The storage containers come in a variety of colors and patterns for aesthetic appeal as well as to simplify labeling.

Polypropylene is capable of being recycled. This allows individuals and businesses to not only reduce their storage container costs but also minimize their environmental impact and avoid creating unnecessary waste.

Storage Benefits

In places where dampness is an issue, these storage boxes are the best choice. They are water resistant and don’t tear like cardboard boxes.

There are some models that can be folded flat when not in use for easy storage.

For storing documents, the boxes are very versatile. They can be stacked and some models have drawer panels. There are several types of locks including flaps that snap into the side as well as file boxes with detachable lids. They come in stacker boxes with and without lids.

The small sized boxes are very useful for storing small parts for crafts and hobbies, as well as for screws, paper clips, beads and more.

The same size container is manufactured in different grades for different purposes. They are all lightweight, but some hold up to 25 pounds, some hold up to 75 pounds and super strong containers hold up to 150 pounds that can hold automotive parts or nuts and bolts.

The collapsed boxes can be set up quickly with no tape required. They can be written on to label and wiped clean and relabeled for another use.

Some of the most common storage applications are:

• Warehousing • Library media • Manufacturing • Retail • Mail rooms • Mobile home and RV travel • Specimen box • Portfolios

Corrugated plastic is also manufactured for packaging purposes for material handling, inventory and returnable containers for industry. They reduce costs because they are reusable for years. The containers can be custom made for specific applications to reduce wasted space on shelves, floors, pallet footprints and trucks.

Other Features

Corrugated polypropylene storage boxes can be modified to have nests, slats for files, slits for CDs, be legal letter size and have dividers for storing very specific items. They can be reinforced with steel, have grips and handles, have lockable bottoms and be customized or printed with a business logo.

Whatever items are being stored, the container should be up to the job and not fall apart due to moisture or other contaminants. This is true for storing children’s toys in the garage or archeological specimens in a university. Corrugated plastic is the material of choice for well-protected storage.
