CONTAINING THE UNCONTAINABLE
Barrier Plastics, Inc. (BPI) is the sole North American manufacturer of Baritainers® - a revolutionary new way of packaging and transporting liquid chemicals that have proven difficult to contain and require either fluorinated high density polyethylene (HDPE) containers or metal packaging.
Our Baritainers® are a sustainable packaging alternative and Barrier Plastics is a member of the Greener Package.
Because Baritainers® possess barrier properties there is no need for further post-manufacturing treatment such as fluorination. Carbon footprint is reduced since additional transportation for treatment of HDPE is eliminated. And the planet is made safer with the reduction in use of toxic fluorine gas.
Since they are lightweight and square, Baritainers® are an economically attractive alternative to metal packaging. Moreover, the jerry can Baritainers are UN Y or X rated.
The approximate 50% reduction in weight combined with the square jerry can design results in reduced freight costs and greater cube utilization. Less truckloads not only mean less cost but also less emissions. Moreover, since the base material is 93% HDPE, they are recyclable. (cf. Package Comparison Chart)
Our Baritainers® do not panel, do not distort and do not lose product. They prevent chemical permeation, weight loss, odor emission and flavor or fragrance loss.
Baritainers® are made of regular HDPE combined with our barrier resin - Quoral®. Quoral® acts as a barrier resin (BR) preventing the diffusion and loss of weight that occurs when hydrocarbons migrate into the atmosphere.
Baritainers® have been extensively tested both for efficacy and safety and exhibit better performance characteristics than fluorinated HDPE containers.
