The industrial containers market is seeing growth and significant material substitution, especially in the paint market segments. Cost and processability are big drivers of innovation, as well as differentiated packaging, including in-mold labeling and high transparency containers. The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) best-in-class portfolio of high density polyethylene resins is widely used in pail applications, and Dow’s high performance Polyproylene impact copolymers are seeing substantial growth in pails and other industrial containers.
Dow products used in these markets are designed to provide the top load strength, low temperature impact resistance, rigidity, durability, and surface aesthetics demanded by today’s industrial container applications. These resins also offer the uniform flow required to fill the multi-cavity molds used for pails, and other industrial containers.
