Corrugated plastic bins and containers have endless uses and can be taken advantage of by a wide range of industries. From organizational purposes to durable transportation, corrugated plastic is a versatile material that can be customized to fit any packaging or protection needs. L-S Industries offers many different corrugated plastic products, but in order to understand how our products can work for you, it’s important to understand corrugated plastic products.
What is Corrugated Plastic?
Corrugated plastic, also referred to as twinwall plastic, is comprised of two sheets of plastic and a ribbed center layer. For packaging and protection purposes, L-S Industries offers customers all types of corrugated plastic — from polypropylene profile board to polyethylene double face. For your convenience, we also stock our corrugated plastic in both rolls and sheets.
What is Corrugated Plastic Used For?
Corrugated plastic can be used for almost anything, and it can be applied to improve almost any workspace; however, corrugated plastic is most commonly used in shipping industries as an alternative to traditional corrugated boxes and other easily degradable materials. Traditional corrugated boxes (and similar materials) tend to create fiber dust — an issue that can create conveyor jams and industry downtime. Using corrugated plastic bins and other corrugated plastic materials help prevent these industry issues, as corrugated plastic bins leave no residue on conveyors and package handling systems. In addition, corrugated plastic bins are green and sustainable, and they can aid in safety and maintenance. Here are three examples of corrugated plastic shipping tools:
- Corrugated Plastic Postal Style Totes
Corrugated plastic totes are lightweight and durable, making them a cost-effective replacement for cardboard, fiberboard, molded plastic, and other substrates. L-S Industries offers corrugated plastic totes in over 100 standard styles, all of which are impact, water, and chemical resistant. They are also reusable and 100% recyclable.
- Corrugated Plastic Trays
Trays are ideal for use in automated packaging systems, mailrooms, retail, shelving, and storage. Like our postal style totes, corrugated plastic trays make a great alternative to cardboard, fiberboard, or molded plastic. Durable in both hot and cold environments, our corrugated plastic trays are fiber and dust-free, lightweight (for lower transportation costs and easier handling), reusable, and 100% recyclable.
- Corrugated Plastic Recycling Bins
Not only does corrugated plastic promote sustainability as a material, it can also be used to help promote recycling in your office or industry. To help promote sustainability and recycling in your industry, L-S Industries offers lightweight, easy to maneuver recycling bins. Our cost-effective recycling bin options are offered in two standard styles, but custom corrugated plastic bins are available.
