You might look into a product called Corrulite, produced by the U.S.
Corrulite Corporation. It is a rigid corrugated polyethylene board
which comes in many weights. It is strong and lightweight, can
easily be cut and bent, and takes hot-melt adhesive very well. If
you can't get it through a local plastics distributor, I will be
happy to dig up contact information for you.
