Corrugated plastic is used in various fields. It is widely applied not only for making coroplast signs. For example, different packaging is made of it.

What is corrugated plastic? It is a sheet product that is made from polypropylene. Yes, it's plastic. But
why is it called corrugated? This is due to its structure. 2 sheets of plastic are interconnected with a zigzag layer of the same polypropylene. The result is an increase in the degree of rigidity of the finished material. It is not easy to bend it, that is, it is difficult to spoil its integrity.
Modern production is able to offer modified corrugated plastic. In the process of making such a material, additional components are added to it. As a result, the characteristics of the finished product
are improved. For example, resistance to sunlight increases, the degree of resistance to fire increases, and anti-static benefits appear.
By the way, this material is also called plastic cardboard. Why is the word "cardboard" present? This
question can be answered in a similar way as in the case of the corrugated material question. Cardboard also has the same structure. But it loses a lot to corrugated plastic in terms of strength, because the cardboard is made of cellulose. Paper cannot be stronger than plastic – that's a fact!
