Tests I ran gluing Corrugated Plastic
I tried several hot melt glues and other adhesives.
Saw Trax has a coroplast cutter
which is useful if you cut in the same direction as the flutes, but not so useful otherwise.
Information on Coroplast resin used
Melting point (324F or 162C), Density etc.
Corplast specification Page
They offer their corrugated plastic "Corruboard" in many thicknesses. Look at the top of the page for the various boxes that are made with it.
Coroplast scoring Video
Youtube video showing how the Corrugated plastic can be scored before bending using what looks like a dulled pizza cutter. I use a roller that I bought to repair some screen windows. It has 2 size wheels.
This information is for general knowledge. Using non tested materials can be dangerous. If you build a coroplast boat (or any other project) be careful and make sure you test and use your boat in safe waters with appropriate personal flotation devices and backup help. Using power tools can be dangerous be careful and be safe.
