Manufacturing & Applications

Indoor & outdoor use

Corflute® Signs are made from Australian polypropylene. Polypropylene is extremely long lasting, durable and water resistant making it an excellent plastic for indoor and outdoor applications.

Print & durability

Corflute® Signs are corona treated for supreme ink adhesion and treated with a UV stabiliser increasing the lifespan of the product.

We digitally print your artwork directly to Corflute® on our high-resolution UV flatbed presses.

Easy to cut

Corflute® is a fluted (or corrugated) extruded sheet so although Corflute® Signs are rigid, the flutes make them light weight. The flutes also make cutting the signs to size very easy.

Recycling Preparation

Preparing your Corflute® Sign for recycling

So that we can recycle your used election signs, we need you to check for contaminants and remove them.

At Corex Recycling, we refer to a contaminant as the presence of materials or a substance other that Corflute®.

We need your Corflute® Signs to be free of contaminates so that we can; shred, melt and make recycled pellets from it which enables us to make products for tomorrow.

Check for contaminants

Your Corflute® election sign may have no contaminants. If your graphics have been printed directly to the Corflute® and there are no eyelets, you probably have a contaminant free sign.

Often, election signage doesn’t need protective PVC film over the surface or eyelets to protect the holes that allow it to be secured to a fence. People tend to use these extra elements when a sign is being used for longer than 6 months.

Remove Contaminants

PVC laminates, paper, tapes & glues

If your Corflute® sign is super shiny and you can pick a layer of plastic from a corner, this is PVC.

Contaminants to look for and remove:

  • PVC film
  • Paper
  • Tapes and glues
Eyelets & supporting additions

Plastic and metal eyelets may be used around the holes to prevent tearing.

Using a Stanley knife or similar, cut the Corflute® area where the eyelets are attached. It’s easiest to cut a straight line across the top of the sheet and so on.

Also remove any cable ties or timber stakes used to support the Corflute® signs.

Recycling

Every sheet of Corflute® is invited to be brought back. We supply industrial size recycling bins called Corpaks® to our clients and distribution partners. We process and recycle all plastic we receive on site. All processed material returned to us has a use within Corex Plastics.
