What Is Coroplast Made Of?Coroplast has a similar appearance to cardboard. That's why sometimes it is referred to as plastic cardboard. The product is made of polypropylene or polypropylene copolymer plastics sheets. The sheets are extruded so that they resemble corrugated cardboard. In place of the wavy or curvy appearance of cardboard, however, Coroplast is formed with square channels known as flutes. The flutes can run horizontally or vertically depending on the customer's needs.
What Is Coroplast Used For?The product can be used for a wide variety of purposes ranging from shipping boxes to model airplanes. However, it is probably best known for its use in the signage industry. In our previous post, we examined some potential sign uses for Coroplast. Listed below are a selection of signage uses for the product. An important note to remember is that these signs are good for both indoor and outdoor applications. Although not suitable for long term outdoor signage, Coroplast is strong enough to withstand all but the worst weather. The product is also water resistant making it ideal even in damp, rainy or snowy weather.
Point of Purchase DisplaysThis image from Garden Centre Marketing is a great example of how Coroplast can be used in a point of purchase display. The sign is bright and colorful, immediately catching the eye. It can easily be used to create point of purchase display signage to attract attention to new products, promotional products, special features and more. To the right is another point of purchase display. This one is a self-standing unit Pinned by Ondřej Bahula | Onto POS/POP displays and built to present Air Wick products in an eye-catching manner.
