|Since 1971, Melmat, Inc. has been a respected supplier of protective containers and carrying cases; Kudl-Pak® and SpaceCase™ are proprietary product lines. Now Melmat, Inc. is fabricating and converting corrugated plastic sheet. Lightweight, yet strong, a great combination for your next container or packaging requirement. Corrugated Plastic is a reusable material that is attractive, durable and cost effective. In addition to stock/standard products, we welcome design challenges to help you create a unique item. |
|Corrugated plastic is an extruded material similar in appearance to corrugated paper. Both upper and lower surfaces are supported by fluted ribs. Several thicknesses are available, from light pliable sheet to heavy duty stiff "boards". |
The material is available in polypropylene. Melmat, Inc. stocks only polypropylene because it is preferred for most applications. Thicknesses available are from 2mm to 10mm.
The stock material is treated for UV resistance; flame retardant, anti-static and conductive sheet are available. The sheet is corona treated, which provides an excellent surface for screen printing and other decoration methods.
|Fluted plastic sheet offers several advantages over corrugated paper, solid plastic sheet, and other sheet materials. It is light weight, yet tough and abrasion resistant. Polypropylene has excellent chemical resistance and is unaffected by water. |
|Melmat, Inc. offers the converting methods of die cutting, scoring and ultra-sonic welding. |
|There are many standard products made from fluted plastic, but uses are limited only by the imagination of the designer. |
| ||Regular Slotted Container (RSC) |
The RSC is the most common container. The flaps meet at the center and can be taped. This container ships flat, making it less expensive on freight.
| ||Half Slotted Container (HSC) |
Same as a Regular Slotted Container without top flaps. Shown here with optional DST lid. Both ship flat and can be assembled in seconds.
| ||Full Overlap (FOL) |
Flaps reach the opposite side of length panels providing added strength to the box. When laying on its largest panel, the flaps provide added strength for stacking. Can be shipped flat.
| ||Roll End Lock Front (RELF) |
This box sets up easily. The sides are folded over and tab lock into place. The lid comes over the front of the box closing with cherry locks. Ships flat.
| ||Design Style Tray (DST) |
The DST has flaps on both sides and ends that are folded to make a tray. The tray can be used by itself or can be used as the lid to an HSC.
| ||Roll End Tray (RET) |
The RET tab locks into place when the sides are rolled over. Can be used as a lid or a tray. Ships flat.
| ||Shelf Bin |
Shelf Bins are ideal for small inventory parts. Self locking by folding over ends and securing with tab locks that can be welded. Ships flat or setup ready to use.
| ||Nestable Totes |
Nestable totes are ideal for conveyors, mail rooms and large inventory items. Can be nested to save space. Ship set up and ready to use.
| ||Portfolios and Cases |
Portfolios and cases are lightweight and durable. They can be used to carry artwork and presentation materials.
| ||Partitions |
Partitions provide a great way for multiple items to be shipped in a container without the fear of breakage. Partitions separate and protect fragile items within a box.
| ||Layer Pads |
Layer pads are used as horizontal dividers.

Additives / Special Requirements
Durability/weather resistant/lightweight, corrugated plastic sheet has the advantage over corrugated paper. Corrugated plastic items last for many years, in most applications.
The United States Postal Service has used corrugated plastic trays and nesting totes for years, with many of the original items still in service.
Corrugated plastic does not absorb water or oil and is dust-free, making the material ideal for use in pharmacies and other places where cleanliness is important.
A few items, or thousands, corrugated plastic, cut and fabricated by Melmat, Inc. will provide utility and superior appearance.
