In recent years, plastic jerrycans have become an essential tool for the industry. Thanks to their high resistance, they are frequently used to store and transport all kinds of products. An essential factor to achieve this resistance is the material used for its manufacture: High-density polyethylene, without a doubt, provides endless qualities such as hardness and resistance to corrosion and impact.

To select the best jerrycans option, you’ll need to define if your products are corrosive, gasified, liquid, flammable, or dangerous to health. It will depend on this that they arrive at their destination in the best conditions and will even give you guidelines to choose the ideal type of cover.

Jerrycan’s Features

When a product is packaged, a very important aspect to consider is the safety of sealing and transport. To achieve this, jerrycans are ideal for the food, agrochemical, chemical, and cleaning product industries. Corrosive products, in addition to the different capacities they handle, can be manufactured with different thicknesses to provide a higher level of safety. These are containers that can be stacked and also have non-slip supports that prevent the displacement of the containers.

Therefore, the 5 most significant characteristics of the jerrycans are:

Security

Endurance

Lightness

High-temperature tolerance

Suitable for containing chemicals

Benefits of HDPE

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is a thermoplastic polymer. This type of material is obtained by addition, this means that different ethylene units are added to its composition. Rigidity and resistance are its main advantages. This plastic is resistant to impacts, traction, and different temperatures. HDPE offers different industries the ease of printing, painting, and gluing tags on it, which facilitates product customization.
