Plastican, Inc: Large-volume plastic container
The 36BR from Plastican is a lightweight, user-friendly 4.25-gallon rectangular plastic container that provides improved cube efficiency and volume packaging of goods.
Suitable for liquids as well as moist, dry, and frozen goods, these rigid yet lightweight containers tolerate a wide temperature range. They also offer easy handling and stacking strength, “nesting” closely to maximize the number of units/pallet and truckload for fewer shipments, less product handling, and the more efficient use of plastic — 20% better cube efficiency than a round pail of the same capacity. Pails are produced using high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or propylene. Hinged lids are available, are easily resealed, and feature a tamper-evident tear strip. Bi-directional handle options allow better ergonomics.
