Polyethylene Benefits


  • Extremely impact resistant
  • Extremely safe to handle - no sharp edges, no exposed metal staples, no slivers from wood
  • Non-magnetic - evaluate core without interference
  • Will not react chemically with core samples
  • Contoured core channels give more accurate core recovery

Reduced Shipping Costs

  • Poly box is 5 pounds versus traditional 10 pound boxes = half of the weight of wood 
  • Helicopter and airplane to remote areas
  • Nesting rato 3.2:1  


  • Fully recyclable  

Weather & Elements 

  • Rot resistant - high humidity and high precipitation areas make wood and cardboard boxes ineffective
  • Remains cool to the touch in high temperatures unlike metal core trays
  • Structural integrity is unaffected by UV rays
  • Wood core boxes have limited life span due to the natural breakdown of the fibre
  • Pest resistant - wood core boxes are prone to wood boring insects in tropical countries 

High Density Polyethylene

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from carbon and hydrogen. HDPE is one of the most commonly recycled materials and has the “2” recycling symbol. It works well in extreme hot or cold with a temperature range from -100 to 120 degrees Celsius. This material has a tensile strength of 4550 pounds per square inch. HDPE gets harder and stiffer as the temperature drops, but does not get brittle like other plastics. HDPE is resistant to many dilute and concentrated solvents containing acids, bases, or alcohol. HDPE is used in many different applications, including:

  • Arena boards (puck board)
  • Ballistic plates
  • Fuel tanks
  • Corrosion protection for steel piping
  • Natural gas distribution pipes
