Production materials & plastic barrels
Widely used in the chemical, pesticide, pharmaceutical, food, hardware, electronics, electromechanical and other industries of liquid, solid goods outside the packaging.
Plastic drums are mostly used for the storage and transportation of various liquids. They have good characteristics for special dangerous goods packaging, which are not fragile, rust-free, light and other characteristics, and good oil resistance, good resistance to strong corrosive properties, and are mostly used for dangerous goods packaging that requires heat preservation, moisture, pressure resistance and corrosion resistance. Plastic drums are polyethene, polypropylene, polyester, plastic blow moulding, injection moulding, blister moulding, and roto moulding. They are mostly used for liquid and solid goods in chemical, pesticide, pharmaceutical, food, hardware, electronics, electromechanical and other industries. Specifications from 0.25L - 220L
Open and closed mouth plastic drums and 1000L plastic drums. What can use them for goods storage or transportation turnover? The maximum capacity of plastic drums produced by the rotomoulding process can reach 50 tonnes.
What can use some products for hot filling, and the general temperature should not exceed 60°C. After hot fill, the lids should be closed and stacked only after the contents have cooled sufficiently and come down to room temperature. Excellent weather resistance from -60°C to -40°C.
The primary raw material for the production of plastic drums is polyethene (PE), or PE for short, a polymeric organic compound made by the polymerisation of ethylene. Polyethene is recognised as the best material in the world for contact with food, non-toxic, tasteless, odourless and in line with food packaging hygiene standards. Polyethene film, light and transparent, has moisture resistance, oxygen resistance, acid resistance, alkali resistance, and airtightness. In general, excellent heat sealing properties, known as the "flower of plastic, " are essential for plastic packaging printing usage.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC), with the molecular formula (CH2-CH2CL)n, is one of the essential types of vinyl polymers and is currently the second-largest plastic in the world after polyethene. In the printing industry, PVC colour calendered films and transparent varnish films are often used for the packaging and decoration of booklets, folders, tickets and other covers.
Shrink film is a thermoplastic film that is stretched and oriented during the production process and shrinks when exposed to hot air treatment or infrared light during use. After the heat treatment, the film is wrapped tightly around the packaged material, and the shrinkage force reaches its maximum during the cooling phase and can be preserved for a long time.
Low-density polyethene, or LDPE for short, is the most used variety in various countries' plastic packaging and printing industry. It has a specific gravity of 0.92 to 0.93 and can float in water. Low crystallinity (60%), in the pressure of 1000 ~ 3000kg / C square meters for the body polymerisation, so also known as high-pressure polyethene. At 23°C, the density is around 0.92. Poor calendering, suitable for processing into tubular films by blow moulding method. Ideal for food packaging, fibre products packaging, daily chemical products packaging.

High-density polyethene, HDPE for short, has a density of 0.941-0.965g/cm3. Made of low-pressure polymerisation, it is also known as low-pressure polyethene. Milky white in colour, indicating a poor lustre. Processing film available blow moulding method and T-die extrusion process. It is heat and steam resistant, cold and freezing resistant, moisture resistant, gas resistant, well insulated and not easily broken, with a strength two times that of LDPE. Very easy to open. Strong paper-like properties, known as "paper-like plastic film".
Biaxially oriented polypropylene film, also known as biaxially oriented polypropylene film, abbreviated code BOPP.which is characterised by oriented stretching molecules, better mechanical strength, folding strength, air density and moisture barrier properties than ordinary plastic films. Compared to cellophane in terms of unit area, the unit price is lower than that of cellophane. Due to the excellent transparency of this film, the colour reproduction after printing is exceptionally bright and beautiful and is an important base material for plastic composite flexible packaging.
Plastic packaging barrels are mainly used to store and transport various liquids. They have the characteristics suitable for certain dangerous goods, i.e. they are unbreakable, rust-free, lightweight, and not easily deformed. In addition to this, they also have the advantages of good oil resistance, corrosion resistance and excellent solid properties. They are very suitable for packaging dangerous goods that require insulation and protection against moisture, pressure, and corrosion.
It is mainly used for liquid and solid goods of chemical materials, pesticides, lubricants, paints, pharmaceuticals, food, hardware, electronics, electromechanics and other industries—specifications from 100mL-200L.
