The industrial chemical industry is tightly regulated and relies heavily on packaging to make sure product can be safely transported. Industrial chemical products are important in industries like agriculture, cleaning, janitorial, and hazardous waste which commonly contain hazardous chemicals that may be harmful if not properly packaged. Paramount Global has helped customers in the industrial chemical industry to make sure the proper packaging is provided for their products’ unique needs while adhering to regulations for transport.
Types of Containers & Packaging for Industrial Chemicals
Packaging used for industrial chemicals does not vary too widely due to function and safety being top priority. Common container styles that Paramount Global has provided to industrial chemical customers include open head pails, tight head pails, industrial round jugs, cylinder round bottles, f-style jugs, oblong cans, open head drums, tight head drums, ibc totes, and more. Containers are mostly available in metal and plastic HDPE or PP. These materials are popular due to their known durability and resistance to the industry they serve. For consumer products, packaging can range from 1 oz to 5 gallons, but bulk needs range between 5-gallon pails to 55-gallon drums. Matching closures, covers, caps, and additional liners or coatings for products that contain aggressive chemicals are also available to ensure product is safely sealed in the container. Part of selecting the correct packaging for industrial chemical products includes meeting safety requirements especially for shipping. In addition to helping customers identify the best UN rated packaging for products to be safely shipped, Paramount also has a freight team dedicated to helping customers navigate additional logistics such as customs clearance.
The industrial chemical industry is not exempt from the demands for more sustainable packaging. Eco-friendly options include using metal since it is 100% recyclable, but also incorporating post-consumer resin such as recycled HDPE into packaging to reduce virgin resin use. Other methods to reduce waste is light weighting packaging which reduces the amount of virgin plastic resin used in the container. As the packaging industry continues to innovate to meet sustainability demands, more options will be available.
Custom Industrial Chemical Container Design & Decoration
For the consumer sector of the industrial chemical industry, container decoration and design aren’t overlooked. Like any product that faces competition on a shelf, design and decoration are used to stand out. Since most containers used are plastic or metal, traditional label and silkscreen for plastic or lithography for metal are the most common methods for decorating. Custom mold design is available for a completely custom package but can be challenging due to regulations for packaging chemical products.
