- Buyer's Guide
A new information-packed Web site about rigid plastic containers has been launched by Plastican Inc. at www.plastican.com. At the click of a mouse, users can explore the company’s extensive line of plastic containers, following direct links for more details.
The site provides in-depth information about Plastican’s desire to work with its customers, helping to design the best possible packaging for their product. Whether the customer needs a container with extra strength for maximum stacking, lower weight to minimize shipping costs, a specific handle or spout, or other characteristics, Plastican’s expert engineering team will translate concept to container.
To find a container appropriate for a particular application, visitors will find the new Web site easy to navigate. In a fast-loading, eye-catching format, the site covers consumer and industrial market segments from inks to pet foods. The visitor can “drill down” to see which Plastican containers are recommended for a specific end product. Included are photos of each container, along with its product number, capacity, dimensions, thickness, handle options, cover options, and the number of units per case. Plastican's open-head pails range in size from 1 to 6.5 gallons and can be used to contain a wide variety of products, including paints, foods, construction supplies, janitorial supplies, lubricants, specialty chemicals, and swimming-pool chemicals.
Four container decorating/labeling options are offered by Plastican: heat transfer, offset printing, silk-screen printing, and pressure-sensitive labels. Here too, Plastican works closely with each customer to help choose the graphics and decorating process that best enhance the container’s visual appeal. Visitors to the Web site can easily request a quotation or technical assistance online, and the site offers detailed contact information for every Plastican facility.
Other features of the Web site include a brief look at Plastican’s new R&D center as well as manufacturing equipment and capabilities.
