Corrugated twin wall plastic sheets help all kinds of tradesmen achieve their ends cheaply, quickly, and efficiently. Durable and easy to work with, these recyclable sheets have a myriad of different uses.
Non-Toxic, Versatile and Built to Last
A corrugated twin wall plastic sheet is obtained from extruded polypropylene and have a wide array of uses and applications thanks to their mechanical characteristics and overall versatility. These lightweight sheets have numerous advantages over similar traditional construction materials: they’re durable, waterproof, and flexible. What’s more, they’re also non-toxic and their surface doesn’t allow for the proliferation of fungus, mould, or other common environmental hazards. For this reason, it’s common to find corrugated twin wall plastic sheets used as packaging for food products and medicines.
In the last step of the fabrication process a UV treatment is applied to the sheets which -aside from making them even stronger- makes them extremely resistant to the elements. This is why corrugated twin wall plastic sheets are therefore ideal for use in outdoor signage as they do not fade in the sun or become weathered by heavy rain fall. The light weight also makes these signs easy to hang. The sheets can be easily cut to size and/or into different shapes and a crown treatment allows for different inks and paints to be fixed easily to the surface.
The additive free production process makes the sheets fire retardant, non-corrosive and anti-static.
At the Job Site
Smart contractors like to have a corrugated twin wall plastic sheet on hand at the job site as it really comes in handy for protecting flooring. Simply lay a sheet of corrugated plastic on the floor and you have a durable, non-slip surface that protects the floor from spills, damage from falling tools and debris, and the scuff from work boots worn by workers who are constantly moving around the space. Best of all, the sheets can be reused multiple times.
A corrugated twin wall plastic sheet can also be used in a pinch to prevent the costly and cumbersome underground leaks that constantly appear when doing sub-surface form work. Polypropylene sheets can also be used for shuttering in lieu of aluminium or cardboard. These are just a few of the ways these sheets can be used to save materials, time, and labour on the jobsite.
Arts and Crafts
There is no end to the different ways that corrugated plastic sheeting can be used to make different arts and crafts. From organizers to furniture to art projects, the ease with which one can manipulate these plastic sheets and render solid forms that maintain their shape makes them an ideal choice for artisans.
