We invented the wax impregnated, corrugated CORE BOX. This material is ideal to use in most climates and drilling conditions. The wax, which is impregnated into the Kraft paper, will not melt during hot conditions and it will not crack when cold. This makes the box very user friendly. It folds easily, does not clog markers with wax, and is a suitable size for lifting. Each box holds 10ft of core. We can also supply wood and plastic CORE BOXES upon request.
