Stratco quality mining core sample trays

With over 70 years’ experience manufacturing and supplying quality products to the Australian construction and mining industries, Stratco understands the importance of protecting your drill core samples in high-quality, purpose-built storage systems. Available for worldwide delivery, Stratco Core Trays are manufactured in a choice of metal or plastic materials and are designed to be strong, versatile and easy to use with a range of styles and sizes to suit your needs.

The range includes Stratco Metal Core Trays and Stratco Plastic Core Trays. The metal trays are made from a quality zinc-aluminium alloy with integrated drainage slots to prevent cross-contamination of core samples, and the plastic trays are made from injection-moulded, highly visible white polypropylene that offers the highest level of UV protection with no pop rivets or welds.

Whichever tray you need, you are guaranteed easy stacking and transportation. Stratco metal core trays are available with optional lugs and detachable handles, while the plastic core trays have handles built in.
