Corrugated plastic sheet?

What is this called? I'm not sure of the name or where to buy it. There is a type of plastic that has a corrugated inside like corrugated cardboard, and 2 smooth surfaces on the outside. Ikea uses it in some of their furniture, like to make translucent "windows" in a cabinet. Ive also seen it used to make semi-rigid file boxes. It's very rigid and lightweight. Like foam core but all plastic, no foam inside. It can be scored and folded easily. Does anyone know what this stuff is, or where to buy it?

Im not sure where to post this, so Im trying several places in hopes someone has used it.

Linnea, type "corrugated plastic sheets" into your web browser line - several websites come up that you can check out.

You might look at Lowe's or Home Depot. I've seen things similar to that in those places.

It is called "Coroply". I used to work in a print shop and we also made signs. I think we ordered ours from a place called sign crafters. It comes in all sorts of colors and sizes.
