Nowadays, more and more people are investing into the use of corrugated plastic. But what exactly are they? There are two types of corrugated plastics depending on their structure. The first type is popularly known as ‘twinwall plastic’ and is composed of two layers of plastic with a ribbed sheet center. The second type, enforced with fiber glass, is made to appear waved in form, much like regular roofing materials. With a wide array of possible uses, whether it is for that tall new building or that project you’re working on inside your garage, it is not surprising that more and more people are using it. Here are four alternative ways of using it for your own DIY projects!
As corrugated plastics are strong materials capable of withstanding a huge amount of weight, coupled with its amazing flexibility, it is an ideal item to have for transferring your stuff from here to there. It’s easy to cut, staple, and shaped to your own taste too, so rest assured that your stuff will be safe from damage and dents.
