Realizing that the operational difficulties caused by wooden boxes in drill-cores storage were common to other companies in the business, the following question came up: why aren’t they made with a more adequate material, like plastic, for example? As a response, the Core Case was developed.
The boxes are made of 100% recycled and recyclable material (Polypropylene – PP), which has an ergonomic format, so they are resistant, light and easy to carry. They are also much more durable than wooden boxes and other materials. Currently, Core Case keeps investing heavily in technology and innovation, aiming to make the products even more relevant to the market, and acting with total respect for the environment.
Core Case products are manufactured with 100% recycled materials;
Plastic has a longer shelf life compared to wooden boxes, especially if properly stored;
ergonomic and safe
Integrated handles for better manipulation. Rounded corners: greater safety in stacking. Rigid material: no twisting of the box;
No risk of contamination
Plastic is an inert material that does not react chemically with other substances; Core Case boxes have holes for water drainage avoiding contamination with the box below;
Data and information security
Fitted ID plates, surfaces with a rough texture to preserve the written data, lid with efficient closing and locking system;
GREAT RESISTANCE TO IMPACT AND EXTREME TEMPERATURES
Products tested in laboratory and field tests (exposed to temperatures from -40º to 50ºC);
Standard products and industrial scale production
Products are made in an ISO 9001 certified plant. Boxes are not hand-crafted as wooden boxes: higher productivity, consistency and guaranteed delivery time;
Efficient use of space
Core Case products considerably improve the organization of warehouses and storage places and reduce the need for high investments in infrastructure. Greater stacking capacity;
The designs are made by industry experts
All products were developed by a design team under the direct supervision of a geologist with over 12 years of experience in mining science and technology development;
Core Case’s plastic boxes are lighter than wood which significantly reduce transport costs;
Studies have shown that in the mid and long term use, the Core Case products are extremely cost-effective compared to other materials (wood, card box, metal).
