Tired of lugging a heavy painting board around? TRY CORFLUTE
WHAT IS CORFLUTE? Corflute is the industry name given to corrugated polypropylene, a fluted plastic which is lightweight yet rigid. The plastic is extruded to give it the large rectangular flutes all the way through it. The name “Corflute” is actually a registered name of the Corex company, but now it's a generic term for fluted plastic.
