Impala Plastics (2002), specialists in Plastic Core Trays

Impala Plastics is Australia's original, most widely tested and comprehensive quality accredited AS/NZS ISO 9001:2008 specialist manufacturer of plastic core trays which are made from either highly specified UV Stabilized Reinforced Polypropylene for warmer climates or High Density Polyethylene for cold environments as low as minus 70 degrees centigrade (we do not use reprocessed material as this reduces the mechanical properties of the tray) - Please email for material spec sheet . With all applications covered by either the original Impala 1 core tray - launched in early 1994 nearly 20 years ago and more recently the Impala 2 core tray - both styles of core tray bring with them different attributes and this means we can offer solutions for every possible core storage requirement having gained a wealth of technical expertise in this area. Both core trays have been designed to provide significant benefits over traditional metal core trays - no sharp edges, non-magnetic & chemically inert, impervious to sulphide's and non-corroding. Impala's plastic core trays are available in high visibility white or black for less glare when photographing the core samples and both styles come with a complete range of core markers to complement the respective core trays.

Impala Plastics supply many leading mining companies, select mine procurement and mineral exploration teams with plastic core trays that are designed to meet consistent high standards. Our core trays have proved there longevity in the field and we have embarked on a complete machinery replacement program over the past 5 years and upgrading / duplication of our tooling so we can guarantee ongoing supply in large volumes.

The design and materials used in our core trays result in lightweight nesting / stacking core trays that are also very robust. In addition the trays are UV protected giving longer life in the field.

  • Non-magnetic
    Get accurate results when testing for magnetic susceptibility.
  • Chemically inert
    Don't risk contamination of your samples.
  • UV stabilized
    For improved life when storing outside - this may also be extended with the use of black core trays - Email for material PDF
  • No sharp edges
    For ease of use and reduction of injuries - less down time.
