A new coating for HDPE containers from RPC Promens Industrial is able to provide a long-term barrier solution for solvent-based products to enable safer handling of a variety of chemicals.

RPC Protect is available for containers in sizes from 5- to 25-litres, with a 30-litre container currently in development. The special barrier additive, a blend of polyolefins and inorganic silicates, forms multiple strips on the inside of the recyclable container.

The availability of the product enables plastics containers to be selected for a range of products, including extremely hazardous items that previously could only be packed in metal.
