Corrugated plastic boxes
Corrugated plastic is an extruded plastic material that resembles corrugated paper. The upper and lower surfaces, flat and smooth, are joined by middle-fluted ribs. They make the material strong, light and flexible. It can be manufactured from polypropylene. This process uses prime or recycled grade material in different percentages.
Cellular plastic has an ideal balance between quality and cost. This applies across various industries thanks to its high degree of customization. Various additives enhance cellular plastic. These include printing, UV-ray protection, fire retardant, and static electricity dissipation. Laminating fabric or foam enhances grip and protection.
Corrugated plastic comes in primary PP sheets. Further, they get cut for layering and separating goods on pallets. Other uses include display shelves and cases. These sheets become reusable packaging like containers, separators, and boxes.
Comparison to other materials used in packaging
Customized packaging from cellular polypropylene suits oddly-shaped goods. They fit large, non-standard items, exceeding typical European and global shipping dimensions. This packaging suits small, oddly-shaped items. It can adapt to single items or multiple products with dividers.
Fluted polypropylene boxes, partitions, and accessories offer cost-effective alternatives to molded plastic crates, wood, and metal containers. The lightweight yet rigid and durable structure enables even more transport costs and storage space savings. Further, the operators will find them easier to handle and less challenging to clean.
Corrugated plastic boxes offer these benefits compared to disposable cardboard packaging:
- Tear and puncture resistance as well as good impact strength, protecting the inner packed items from damages
- Durability, as corrugated plastic packaging can be used for many years
- They resist factors like moisture, mildew, chemicals, and oils at regular temperatures
- Cleanliness, as the surfaces are easy to wipe and maintain clean
- Cost-effective due to the advanced reusability degree
We create custom boxes to meet client needs as a plastic box producer and corrugated plastic converter. In-house tech allows us to cut, crease, and weld polypropylene sheets, creating custom packaging with unique features.
We can customize the Akylux boxes in terms of:
- Material thickness
- Material density
- Preferred colors
- Printing options
Our box designs cater to unique needs. Most projects involve meticulous manual work. The boxes can have lids, carvings, injected handles, rivets, stacking profiles and corners, and additional reinforcements. These factors optimize load capacity, goods protection, parts per package, and maneuverability. Depending on the customer’s needs, the edges can be left open or sealed.
For storage and transport efficiency, we can develop collapsible corrugated plastic boxes. Few attachment points allow swift assembly and flat storage or shipping.
Most of our corrugated plastic crates are developed for the automotive and electronic industries. These packaging solutions address companies across all fields and industries. They organize and protect goods during storage, transport, and handling.
The automotive sector’s components and parts require complex and innovative technical packaging. They need to be sturdy but lightweight for easy handling. Alveoplast boxes are light yet strong, enhancing supply chain maneuverability.
Sensitive electronic components require corrugated plastic boxes. These boxes should possess anti-static or electrostatic discharge properties. They prevent electrostatic charge buildup and potential damage, ensuring safe product storage and shipping.
These boxes facilitate part movement between production, assembly lines, and dispatch in production sites. Heavier items benefit from reinforced components, enhancing crate duration and goods protection.
The boxes can be used as secondary packaging for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. The main advantage is that the boxes can be sterilized at high temperatures. This maintains hygiene requirements.
Courier companies find corrugated plastic boxes cost-effective and dependable for packaging. The crates are versatile for sorting envelopes and small packages. They also distribute them to subsidiary centers and end recipients.
In the clothing industry, corrugated plastic boxes offer a clear advantage. They protect semi-finished and finished products from water and liquids, preventing irreparable damage.
Agriculture, retail, and the food and beverage industries can benefit from corrugated plastic boxes. Beyond protecting products and saving costs, this packaging enhances brand image and shelf visibility. This material permits vibrant multi-colored advertising images and text printing. It happens due to ink adhesion treatment.
In these applications, we provide partitions and dunnage options. They help customers increase product count per package and reduce extra packing materials.
