Corrugated Plastic (also known by its different brand names Corflute, Coroplast, Correx, Corriflute, IntePro, Twinplast) is an extruded twinwall plastic sheet which looks similar to cardboard (corrugated fiberboard) but is made of plastic. It is commonly used in the signage industry for temporary or short term signage. In South Africa (where it’s commonly known as Correx) its most popular use is to create real estate “for sale” signs. Corrugated Plastic is available in various colors and thickness, is durable and waterproof and can be easily cut with a craft knife or box cutter.
