Barrier Plastics to produce recyclable jerrican

US-based Barrier Plastics has announced plans to begin the production of a new UN Rated 20l jerrican that will continue its efforts to contain corrosive and potentially hazardous chemicals. The jerrican features new design with a wider 70mm neck and incorporates 5% Quoral BR50.

Barrier Plastics said the FDA compliant jerrican comes with an engineered bottom seam for increased seal integrity and an enlarged handle area to accommodate large and gloved hands. Other features include engineered dimpled corners for improved drop performance and a vent feature with an SP-410 thread available.

Available in a 70mm tamper-evident screw cap closure with 3/4 NPT Center Reducer, the Baritainer jerrican comes standard in white, blue and natural colors, besides custom colours. It is recyclable and has an actual 5.2 gallon capacity, with a height of 14’3," width of 10.1” and length of 10.9."

Baritainers serve as a sustainable packaging alternative that avoids the potential failure of fluorinated packaging or lined steel containers while reducing the carbon footprint of a product.
