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.
