Polymer Science

We engineer PP, HDPE and other polymer blends with specific qualities to suit customer’s needs.

Our recycling service is the vital link to make our product lifecycle truly sustainable and a part of a Circular Economy.

Overview

A vital component in the creation of any of our products, is the quality of the plastics we engineer and how we can make them better.

Polymer engineering

We make all of our own plastic sheet and rolls that we sell, which means that when you work with us, you will receive a product that is scientifically engineered and tested for the environment that you are using the product in.

Our product development and polymer engineers will work with you to select the best material for your job.

When choosing the best sheet for your application, we consider:

  • UV stability
  • Printability
  • Durability
  • Cracking resistance
  • Impact strength
  • Flexibility

Polymer R&D for your industry

We engineer plastic sheet and rolls that are specific to your industry. If you need a solution for a unique application, get in touch and we will formulate a product to your specification. Some of our industry specific sheet advancements include:

  • Stericor® – anti-viral and anti-bacterial Corflute® for medical, pharmaceutical and supply chain
  • Biocor® – bio-derived version of Corflute® for retail packaging, fresh produce, and sustainability
  • Elastocor® – geomembrane liners for dams, effluent ponds and evaporation ponds
  • ESD sheet – Corflute® that prevents electrostatic discharge and damage to electrical components
  • FR sheet – flame retardant additive in Corflute® for building, construction, and warehousing

Plastic recycling and reuse

Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. Not only do we recycle and reuse all of our own post-industrial waste, but our polymer engineers also lab test and reprocess many other plastics for reuse at Corex and for our recycling customers.
