3 Tips for Choosing Plastic Pails

UN Approved Plastic Pails

With the abundant selection of plastic pails available in the market which one should you pick for your specific application? Midway Container can help you choose the right plastic pails for your project. We’ve put together a few considerations to help you narrow down options and zero in on the right package for your needs:

  1. What regulatory requirements must your plastic pail and lid meet? If you’re packaging food products, for example, you will need your package to be in compliance with FDA regulations. If your product is hazardous you will need a UN approved package for your product.
  2. Is your product compatible with the plastic pail? Different resins can be used to manufacturer plastic pails. HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is most commonly used but we can also get certain pails made with PP (polypropylene). Determining resin compatibility with help ensure there is not a package failure in the market.
