Pail packaging products are common choices for customers looking to hold large quantities of material with more mobility than an industrial drum. Finding the right pail option begins with deciding between plastic and steel varieties. At Pipeline Packaging, we carry an inventory meant to offer customers a breadth of choice, with a plethora of plastic as well as steel solutions like this 5-gallon gray open head pail. While plastic pail options perform well in terms of versatility alongside their lightweight, steel pail options remain a premier safe choice when handling combustible or hazardous materials like acetone, methanol, ethanol, as well as other chemicals capable of dissolving the plastic. The added strength of the steel construction also makes it more impact and temperature resistant.
In addition, this 5-gallon gray open head pail or commonly known as a steel bucket, comes equipped with a rust-inhibited lining to provide an extra layer of security. Though steel solutions are commended for their overall strength, they have the potential to corrode throughout their lifespan. The rust inhibitor lining prevents corrosion by forming a protective coating down to the molecular level. Pipeline Packaging also offers products in a variety of other linings such as phenolic, epoxy phenolic, or even unlined alternatives.
With a UN rating, this 5-gallon gray pail comes in an open head nested style. Though tight head styles are an excellent choice for those who require secured long-term storage or shipping, open head pails maintain a safe seal while allowing for easy access to stored materials. The tapered build of the nested open head style minimizes shipping costs by maximizing storage space.
