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.
11 reasons to use Core Case products
Produced with 100% recycled and recyclable raw materials.
Built of durable plastic.
More ergonomic and safe
Rounded corners enable greater stacking safety and greater rigidity.
No risk of contamination
As inert, plastic does not react with the rocks; moisture drains through lateral edges, avoiding contamination to box below.
Data and information security
Fitted ID plates; rough-textured surfaces preserve written data; efficiently closing and locking lid.
Increased resistance to impact and extreme temperatures
Lab and field-tested (exposed to temperatures from -40°C to 50°C).
Standard products and industrial scale production
Industry-produced in compliance with ISO 9001; engineered design and assembly ensure higher productivity and prompt delivery.
Efficient use of space
Greater stacking capacity (to 25 with Generation II) reduces storage/warehousing investment.
The designs are made by industry experts
Design team under direct supervision of geologist with over 10 years experience in research and mineral production areas.
Significantly lighter than wood or metal, reducing transport costs, especially by air.
Extremely cost effective in comparison to wood, cardboard.
