Introduction

Many projects require a surface covering to resist weather, splashing and dirt, or to otherwise contain liquids or parts.

Challenges

UV and water resistance, reusability and renewable material sources.

Approaches

Coroplast corugated plastic is an all-purpose sheet-stock. Waterproof, resists mold and decay even when submerged in water for prolonged durations, insulating, foldable, impact and tear resistant, cuts with a knife. Useful for making boxes, shingles, buckets, backpacks, kayaks, sinks, sluices, rulers, drill guides and templates, and even some structural elements.

Parts

Interoperability

Development targets

Coroplast single-sheet casting machine to interoperate with the plastic shredder and plastic press components. (provides: fresnel lens, coroplast, single-side coro, flat sheet stock. Consumes: recycled plastic, fiber, mycofoam, epoxies, etc) White / Black single sheet coro for heat insulation / absorption
