Plastican, Inc: New lightweight 5-gallon rigid packaging

5-gallon rigid plastic container is designed to package goods for the industrial and consumer markets, including building products, paints, foods, and a variety of do-it-yourself products.
FILED IN:  Sustainability  > Strategy

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 5-gallon pails. The container also combines excellent crack-resistance, compression strength, and environmental sustainability for worry-free stackability 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. By using custom resin blends where necessary, Plastican meets customer-specific performance requirements such as ambient and frozen impact strength, compression strength, and environmental-stress crack resistance. Efficient molding technologies, lean manufacturing processes, and in-house testing ensure an economical and reliable solution. The company’s experts can also help choose the decorating process and photo-quality graphics that best enhance the container’s visual appeal. Manufactured at four company-owned plants, Plastican containers hold a wide variety of products, including paints, foods, construction supplies, janitorial supplies, lubricants, specialty chemicals, swimming-pool chemicals, and pet-care products.
