Baritainers® are a revolutionary new way of packaging and transporting hazardous liquid chemicals that have proven difficult to contain requiring either fluorinated high-density polyethylene (HDPE) containers, EVOH multilayer, or metal packaging. Kortrax® based Baritainers® can be used to safely transport volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) such as household chemicals, industrial & laboratory chemicals, chemical waste, cleaning solvents, adhesives, wood preservatives, automotive fuel additives, additives in the agricultural chemical sector.

Baritainers® Are Green

Alternative To Metal Containers

Performance & Testing Sample Request

Barrier Plastics, Inc. (BPI) is the sole North American manufacturer of Baritainers® – a revolutionary new way of packaging and transporting liquid chemicals that have proven difficult to contain and require either fluorinated high-density polyethylene (HDPE) containers or metal packaging.

Baritainers® are a sustainable packaging alternative, and Barrier Plastics is a member of the Greener Package Consortium (www.greenerpackage.com). Because Baritainers® possess barrier properties, there is no need for further post-manufacturing treatment such as fluorination.

Carbon footprint is reduced since additional transportation for treatment of HDPE is eliminated.

And the planet is made safer with the reduction in the use of toxic fluorine gas. Since they are lightweight and square, Baritainers® are an economically attractive alternative to metal packaging. Moreover, Baritainer® drums, Tight Heads and IBC’s are UN Certified and Y rated.


Why Use Baritainers®

Economical, Green Packaging, Safety

Performance & Testing Sample Request

Since they are lightweight and square, Baritainers® are an economically attractive alternative to metal packaging. Baritainer® square Tight Heads is approximately 50% less weight versus steel tightheads which results in reduced freight costs and greater cube utilization. Less truckloads not only mean less cost but also reduced emissions.

Baritainer® base material is primarily HDPE. Unlike EVOH multi-layer containers, Baritainers® are recyclable code 2. They do not panel, distort and lose product. They prevent chemical permeation and weight loss.

Baritainers® are produced with HDPE combined with our proprietary barrier resin additive – Kortrax®. Kortrax® acts as a barrier resin (BR) preventing the diffusion and loss of weight that occurs when hydrocarbons migrate into the atmosphere.

Baritainers® have been extensively tested both for efficacy and safety and exhibit better performance characteristics than fluorinated HDPE containers. There is no concern regarding human exposure to PFAS or PFOS.
