HDPE Round Buckets with Snap-Lock Lid
Snap-Lock Containers are molded from freezer-grade FDA compliant High Density Polyethylene with polyethylene lids. Under normal conditions, containers may be steam-sterilized, hot-filled, and fast-frozen, without affecting their strength and performance. Snap-lock Lid design ensures a positive seal that reseals tightly time after time. Containers nest for easy storage. These Snap-Lock buckets include handles for easy carrying.
Is HDPE right for me?
High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a plastic material that is economical, impact resistant, and provides a good moisture barrier. HDPE is best known for its naturally translucent appearance and flexibility. It is compatible with a wide range of products including acid concentrates and some caustics, but is not compatible with solvents. The addition of color will make HDPE opaque, but not glossy. HDPE offers good protection at below freezing temperatures, but must not be used with products filled at over 180 degrees F or products requiring a hermetic seal.
