UN Jerricans: Barrier Plastic 1 gal | 4L | 10 L | 20 L

Our barrier plastic UN jerricans are designed to contain and prevent permeation of aggressive chemicals - gasoline, crude oil, solvents, resins - this special barrier allows for a UN packaging that is cheaper than fluorinated plastic, and a cheaper/lighter alternative to steel.  Made to UN specifications and food safe standards, these UN jerricans are extremely versatile.  95 kPa pressure tested, these UN jerricans are also IATA approved to ship liquids by air transport.   All our UN jerricans comply with applicable regulations - TDG, 49 CFR, IMDG Code, IATA, & ICAO.

Plastic UN Jerricans

Our specially designed plastic UN jerricans are made with barrier resin technology; this allows for the safe storage and transportation of chemicals that typically cause permeation & degradation of plastics.  For a list of chemicals compatible with our plastic UN jerricans, please refer here.

* Our plastic UN rated jerricans are made using Quoral – a barrier resin – which forms a protective layer within the packaging’s HDPE surface. This process restricts evaporation/permeation and allows for the safe transport of solvent-based products such as household & industrial chemicals, cleaning solvents, adhesives, wood preservatives, automotive additives, and agricultural chemicals. The result is a UN packaging that:

  • replaces lined steel
  • replaces fluorination
  • cost effective
  • lightweight & stackable
  • impact resistant
  • foodsafe
  • resistant to chemicals and acids (refer to our chemical compatibility chart)
