Material:

Polypropylene PlasticPolypropylene (PP) is a tough plastic that has excellent chemical resistance. PP is translucent in its natural state but can have a glossy finish when produced with color. Some examples of common products made with PP are dairy and medication containers. Polypropylene is suitable for hot fill applications of up to 205°F and is therefore great for autoclaving. It is not recommended for cold or sub-freezing temperatures. The Cary Company has an assortment of polypropylene plastics available for purchase, such as plastic caps and jars, which have a higher tolerance for chemical products. Discover if Polypropylene is appropriate for hot fill application by learning more about What Is Hot Fill Packaging and how it applies to Polypropylene containers.

Q & A
Customer Questions
Can this plastic pail lid be used for food products?
If the pail lid is FDA approved, then it can be used to store food products.
Some of your plastic pail lids have a spout. What are the benefits of these spouts?
If your plastic pail contains liquids, these spouts offer many benefits. These spouts allow controlled flow of the pail contents as they’re emptied. Many of these spouts can be fitted with pumps that enable dosed dispensing of the pail contents.
Which plastic pail lids fit which plastic pails?
If you look at the product page for any of our pail lids, the compatible pail(s) for that lid will be listed under the Related Products section of the product page. For UN rating compatibility, match the UN ratings of the pail and lid. For example, match a pail with a UN rating of UN1H2/Y12/S to the matching lid that has the same UN rating (UN1H2/Y12/S).
What does the Pail Series mean?
Our plastic pails and lids are classified as part of a designated Series, which makes pairing this plastic lid with a compatible pail easier. Simply match the size (e.g., 5 gallon) and series (P5 Series) of the pail and lid to find a proper fit. For the UN rating to apply, also match the UN rating of the pail to the lid. For example, match a pail with UN rating of UN1H2/Y12/S to the matching lid with the same UN rating (UN1H2/Y12/S).
