Plastican Introduces New Lightweight Five-Gallon Rigid Packaging

Posted: May 2, 2014

A new lightweight five-gallon rigid plastic container, now available from Plastican Inc., is designed to package goods for the industrial and consumer markets, including building products, paints, foods, and a variety of do-it-yourself products.
Lightweight but strong due to Plastican’s proprietary resin-blending technology, the 40BL container offers 19% better weight per gallon of storage capacity than standard heavier weight five-gallon pails. The container also combines excellent crack-resistance, compression strength, and environmental sustainability for worry-free stack ability and shipping.
The 40BL container is available in either high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polypropylene, with or without recycled content. Consumer-friendly lightweight lids are designed for easy removal and reseal. An innovative leader in the manufacture of high-performance rigid plastic packaging, Plastican works closely with customers to understand their requirements and recommend the best container for the application.
