Want to find out more about our custom printed Correx® Signs and boards? How to customize your own Correx® boards and signs? Or how quickly we could print it? The answers to these questions and more can be found below.
What is Correx®?
Correx® is a trademark of Corplex but is also referred to as Corex, Corvex, Cortex as well as corrugated plastic or fluted plastic.
Correx® is a produced from polypropylene resin and is a twin walled plastic with corrugated middle.
These corrugated sheets are available in different sizes but most commonly used in 4mm and 6mm. Although correx boards can be made as thin as 2mm and as thick as heavyweight 10mm, which is ideal for large format printed signs, outdoor advertising boards, hoardings and pitch side advertising.
For further information please read our blog all about Correx®.
Is Correx® recyclable?
Yes it is 100% fully recyclable in waste stream 5. Learn more about our recycling and sustainability policy here.
What is the largest sign size available?
Standard Correx® sheets are (8ft x 4 ft) 2438mm x 1219mm but we can spread your design over multiple panels if required.
Are there any standard sizes for Correx® advertising boards?
No everything is custom made so you can have any size boards printed. Some of the standard size signs we get requests for are; A4, A3, A2, A1 and A0.
How strong is corrugated plastic?
This is a question with lots of different answers. First of all the thickness and weight of the sheet need to be considered. The thickness of the sheet, or caliper, is measured in millimetres, whereas the weight of the sheet is measured in grammes per square metre. This is also known as the grammage, or abbreviated to gsm. This is a simple calculation of how much a piece of Correx®, sized 1000 x 1000mm, weighs in grammes.
Correx® type plastic is made by various suppliers, who all make a variety of both thicknesses and weight of sheets. The weight of the sheets may be different, although the thickness is identical, alternatively two manufacturers sheets may weigh the same, but be of different thicknesses. This comes down to how much actual plastic there is in the make-up of the sheets. The structure of some sheets may be lighter than others, but achieve the same overall thickness. Makers reduce the weight of plastic in the sheets to keep cost down.
In answer to the question ‘how strong is Correx®’, it bends and folds very easily, but will not snap. It is simple to cut, but virtually impossible to tear. It has strong weather resistance, but will ultimately fail after simple over exposure to direct sunlight.
How long will Correx® Coroplast last outside?
Another good question. Correx® is waterproof, frost proof and very resistant to wind. However after a long exposure to the UV rays of direct sunlight, it will eventually crumble and turn to dust. Service life outdoors, in all weathers would be at least a year, and longer…but dependent upon the sunshine!
Can you write on corrugated plastic?
You can write on it with a permanent marker, felt tip, ball point pen, or even a dry wipe pen. However, the surface of Correx® isn’t classed as ‘dry wipe’ and wouldn’t be recommended for that use, as pen marks would remain.
How do you hang corrugated plastic / Correx® signs?
Correx® signs can be fitted in lots of ways, depending on where you want to display them. For outdoor use, it’s easy to use with screws and washers, drilled corner holes would make fitting with plastic cable ties simple. For inside use it can be mounted with double sided tape or tabs, as it’s so light.

"We have been supplied quality Vinyl stickers by Screen Print and Display for at least 6 years. Our business started back in the early ‘00’s, and quite a number of other suppliers had been used until we tried Screen Print & Display. Since then we have not need to go anywhere else. Our stickers need to be tough, with a double lamination, and very adhesive, for submerge water use. We can highly recommend Screen Print & Display for quality products, customer service, and cost."
