    Question What's the name of...

    the lighweight plastic sheet material (a bit like corrugated cardboard) that's used for making oversized 'light wind' wind-blades on self-steering units?
    I chose the road less travelled, now where the hell am I?

    Do you mean polycarbonate sheet like this?

    I know it as "corriflute" - don't know if that's a generic term or one company's trade name.

    Default At last- a use for estate agents?

    Do you mean something even cheaper and light weight than conservatory roofing?

    I've used plastic 'for sale' boards for anchor balls and cones and other lightweight jobs.

    Cuts with a Stanley knife. Can be bought (without graphics) from school type art suppliers

    Probably quite UV resistant...

    I know where there's a signage/school supplies shop locally, I just need to translate Correx into Greek now.

    Go to your local sign maker and you will probably get a cutting for free.

    I also know what you are describing as "Corriboard" .
    Like Corriflute and Correx, a twin walled polyproylene sheet.

    More flexible than polycarbonate and easily cut with a sharp knife.
