Irvine, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2014
Barrier Plastics, Inc. proudly announces the long-awaited launch of its new Baritainer® Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC). A full year of research and development went into the release of the IBC, which is made with HDPE and Quoral® Barrier Resin. The IBC serves as an alternative to fluorinated and multilayer IBCs for the packaging and shipping of chemicals requiring barrier protection.
Barrier Plastics is the only US Company to manufacture a UN-rated monolayer barrier Intermediate Bulk Container. At 40" wide, 48" long, and 46" high, the Barrier IBC has a capacity of 275 gallons (1,000 liters), a tare weight of 144 pounds, and a gross weight of 3,805 pounds. It features a six-inch (150-millimeter) fill opening and two-inch discharge opening, and it comes in a zinc-galvanized square tubular steel grid cage with a galvanized stamped sheet metal pallet. A variety of gasket options are available, and the valve is tamper evident. Additional, larger capacity IBC’s are currently in product development.
All Barrier Plastics Baritainer® containers are made with Quoral® Barrier Resin (BR), manufactured by Barrier Plastics’ sister company, BP Polymers. Quoral® BR is a unique, proprietary barrier resin additive for high-density polyethylene that utilizes laminate technology. Quoral®-based containers can safely transport solvent-based products such as household chemicals, industrial chemicals, cleaning solvents, adhesives, wood preservatives, automotive additives, and agricultural chemicals. They can also safely transport foodstuffs such as flavorings and edible and essential oils.
