The corrugated plastic sheet is a waterproof and non-toxic film, recyclable and very flexible as it can be bent without breaking. In addition, it has great capacity to absorb impacts and Vibrations. Ideal for interiors and exteriors because it has an excellent performance in different environments, so it has no effect on contact with oils, solvents and water at normal temperatures. It has corona treatment, which makes it suitable for digital printing with solvent and UV inks, additionally can be printed by screen printing.
Some general features of the corrugated plastic sheets include;
Thickness: has a range of thickness ranging from 3 millimeters, 4 millimeters and 10 millimeters.
Color: yellow, light blue, dark blue, white, silver, gray, black, natural, red, green and orange.
Measures: 1.22 x 2.44 meters and more
Weight: varies in weight depending on the application.
The corrugated plastic sheet is a product with a great diversity and variety of uses, such as for;
· Decorative signs.
· Points of sale.
· Shipping boxes.
· Industrial boxes.
When storing the corrugated plastic sheet, you should avoid sources of ignition. It is also important to maintain good ventilation to protect the product of physical-chemical stresses, such as temperature and humidity of the air, saline air, water vapor and dust.
The material must be stored horizontally on a flat surface how a platform can be. It should never be stored in an upright position because plastic has a memory and tends to retain the shape in which it placed, so it tends to deform, especially in the presence of heat.
· Do not stack more than 5 pallets.
· Do not roll up.
· Do not fold.
· Do not expose to sun rays or excessive temperatures.
· Avoid hitting the edges and corners.
Do not force the corrugated plastic sheet to fit on a vehicle to avoid deforming.
Only clean with a soft, damp cloth.
Do not rub, scrape, and use fibers, abrasive materials or solvents as this may damage the corona treatment and therefore prevent or hinder the material can be printed properly. Preferably use gloves when handling the material as the grease body, it can also damage the corona treatment.
For bending, folding or other impact conditions, it is recommended that this be done between 10°C and 60°C. In other conditions the material may fracture.
It should be tempered, or air-conditioned for processing if the environmental conditions are outside this temperature range. Avoid using any method or process to prepare the surface of the sheet prior to printing as it has the corona treatment and other treatments can damage it.
It is recommended to store for long periods of time. They could be presented problems with printing on material if corona treatment expires. The use of bur routers is not recommended as they burn the material.
Do not throw the corrugated plastic sheet into sewers, water bodies (rivers, lakes, seas, etc.), open terrain and public garbage dumps. Instead, it is suggested to send the material to recycling companies, authorized recuperators and incinerators or others thermal destruction devices that comply with laws and regulations local, federal and state. Note: 3 and 4 mm thicknesses can be cut with a knife; 10 mm can be worked with a saw.
