IPL Offers Environmentally Sound Packaging Solution

Leak-proof, polypropylene pails are easy to open, close, and handle

Saint Damien, QC- IPL, a North American leader in the design and manufacture of innovative packaging, introduces an environmentally sound packaging solution with its Shure-Lock® line of Industrial Pails and Commercial containers made of polypropylene (PP) resin. Polypropylene pails are environmentally sound and exhibit great top load strength; they use 20% less resin than polyethylene (HDPE) containers while exhibiting the same strength. Offset quality also increases when using PP.

IPL’s innovative new Shure-Lock containers are remarkably easy to open, close, handle and ship. Due to its innovative design and interlocking rings, the Shure-Lock container’s top fits snugly into its bottom, creating a very stable pallet. These containers are an ideal packaging solution for a wide range of industrial products, including detergent, joint compound, adhesives and fertilizers.

IPL Packaging is the only manufacturer in North America to produce and offer a wide range of polypropylene pails and containers. This packaging solution is available in the Shure-Lock Industrial Pails and Commercial containers in 13 different sizes ranging from one-quart to five-gallons.
