Printing Inks? We could write a book.

Why our black plastic buckets and other containers have become so vital to the ink industry

Ink manufacturing and for that matter paint and coatings manufacturing as well, are all extremely challenging and technical processes.  You might not fully appreciate it if you are not closely involved, but there are so many different kinds of inks, paints and coatings … and each and every one will have been specifically developed to meet the unique requirements of a particular process or to produce a desired result.  Whilst at Patrico we are not directly involved with these technical processes themselves, our plastic buckets and jerricans, together with our hugely acclaimed steel drums and tinplate pails, have become indispensible trade accessories and are in their own way, major contributors to the success of many of the manufacturing companies involved.

Our plastic, steel and tinplate containers have proved to be ideal for these specialist processes and products and they are now in constant demand by many of the UK’s leading manufacturers.

Plastic BucketsThe guaranteed quality assurance we apply to all our products is of particular importance where the storage of a wide range of pre-production raw materials – both solids and liquids – plus the safe and secure transportation of the vast variety of finished products is of paramount importance.

Such is the vital significance of these quality assured storage and transportation containers, it is little wonder that so many of the biggest and most successful manufacturers of inks, paints and coating products now rely on Patrico.

Our 5 litre plastic buckets are in constant demand for the reliable transportation of both liquid and solid ink ingredients.  Likewise we also supply 5 litre plastic jerricans to all these industries for the transportation of valuable products.  Over recent years there has been an increasing demand for our steel drums that are available in a wide range of capacities, together with different lidding, fastening and dispensing configurations. We have also found that there is a growing call for our tinplate tapered pails that are available from 1 litre up to 30 litre capacities and with a range of finishes and fastenings.
