Fluted Polypropylene Boards Properties

Physical, mechanical, thermal, electrical, and optical properties of fluted polypropylene boards

Fluted Polypropylene Boards are lightweight corrugated plastic sheets that are low cost, waterproof, and stain-resistant. These boards are durable, rigid, and easy to fabricate with chemical, moisture, and UV resistant characteristics. Corona treated sheets are receptive to paints, some inks, and pressure sensitive adhesive backed materials. Fluted polypropylene is often used for short-term outdoor signs, POP displays, printed advertising graphics, and packaging and tote boxes.

Fluted polypropylene boards are available in a wide range of colors and thicknesses. Please ask your Curbell Plastics representative for more specific information about an individual brand.
