Materials - Where to Get Coroplast un the UK

Hi there,

I am thinking of getting some Coroplast (called Correx in the UK) for an undertray. Instead of buying the pricey 4mm stuff from a signmaker I think I'm going to use 2 layers of 2mm black material like builders put down instead of ply these days.

It's around 4 - 5 a sheet (2.4m by 1.2m) from a local builder's merchant.

Trademate by Travis Perkins

(No association - other builder's merchants are available who may stock correx sheets)

I had to sign up for a cash account card (free) to buy it, but no fuss otherwise. I recon a whole undertray can be made for 20ish.

I will post a separate thread of the undertray / belly pan build when the time comes.

A lot more expensive than the big plates in the UK.
Maybe they'll give you better prices in NL when you order a few big plates and pick them up ?


H2O2 seems to have found a cheap source .
