A plastic jerry can is a robust storage device designed to carry small quantities of fuel or other liquids in a safe and secure capacity. ITP Packaging stocks a practical range of plastic jerry cans manufactured from non-reactive high-density polyethylene (HDPE), and our expert team is ready to help you find the best products for your personal or industrial requirements.

What Are Plastic Jerry Cans Best Used For?

The plastic jerry can is a hardwearing industrial storage container best used for storing liquids. Because they are designed with a practical handle and are manufactured in sizes up to 25 litres, the plastic jerry can is able to be carried by hand and is often utilised in both personal and industrial capacities. The plastic jerry can is perfect for storing fuel, but it can be also used to store a wide range of other liquids.


What Liquids Can Be Stored in a Plastic Jerry Can?

The classic jerry can was originally intended to store fuel, including different types of petrol and diesel. This is a role the plastic jerry can continues to fulfil today, however plastic jerry cans are also able to safely store an impressive range of other liquids.

These liquids include:

  • Petrol
  • Diesel
  • Oil
  • Water
  • Chemicals (including cleaning agents)

Always check that the liquid you are storing can safely be held inside HDPE containers, and won’t react with plastic.
