New 20 and 25 litre PET containers from RPC Promens Industrial are designed to provide an enhanced handling solution for a wide range of industrial products. Their ergonomic design makes them light and easy to handle and a central neck provides easy pouring with no glugging. The containers are also stackable.
Already proven in mainland Europe, the containers are now being introduced into the UK market following major investment by RPC Promens at its Deeside facility. They are UN Packing Group II, SG 1.7 (20 litre) and SG 1.8 (25 litre) approved for the carriage of hazardous goods, and are claimed to be strong enough to withstand the rigours of the distribution process with no additional outer pack.
For individual branding, they can be specified in a variety of colours, and there is a large labelling area.
The containers are around 50% lighter than other large plastic containers and have been designed to provide maximum pallet utilisation, offering improved transportation efficiencies that deliver a significantly reduced carbon footprint, says the company. In addition, barrier PET is fully recyclable.
