Colour Options

Stratco has the flexibility to manufacture core trays in a range of different colours (subject to quantity), including black trays, which are preferred by State Government Drill Core Reference Libraries, when using the HyLogger Spectral Scanner.  Stratco’s core trays are manufactured using virgin grade plastics, which means there are less impurities within the actual core tray itself. This improves the accuracy of the HyLogger core reading.

Invest In Quality

Stratco manufacture the plastic core trays from injection moulded polypropylene to ensure it is corrosion proof and cannot cross contaminate the stored ore, even those ores that are highly acidic or highly alkaline, or in high levels of humidity. The Core Trays are available in white or grey virgin or recycled plastic. The white is a popular option as it offers great visibility underground and at night. Virgin plastics are used for the highest possible level of UV protection.
