Plastic UN Buckets ROPAC®

Schoeller Allibert Swiss has been producing the ROPAC® range of  Plastic UN Buckets for over 40 years from their factory in Romont, Switzerland.

Patrico are proud to announce that we are the sole UK Strategic Re-sellers for the innovative ROPAC range of quality Plastic UN Buckets certified for hazardous liquids or solids, which offer unparalleled strength and protection for high-value products.

These robust Plastic UN Buckets are used extensively within the UV Inks, Lubricants and Chemical sectors but they are also suitable for certain food-related applications, which include Ingredients and Vitamins.

The UN for Solids range is available in a multitude of sizes from 3 to 32 litres and the UN for Liquids range is available in 5, 10 and 20 litres. Most versions have the ability to have a pull-up pouring Spout (Berg) for ease of emptying and are produced in UV Safe (Black) colours and have the reassurance of Tamper Evident features.

The UN for Liquids range, certified for hazardous liquids class Y and Z (Packing Group II and III) are capable of withstanding the demanding 100 kPa (1 bar) UN Pressure Test, which is no mean feat for a plastic, full open top container. Because of this, the 5 Litre Product received the Swiss-Star and World-Star Packaging Awards.

ROPAC® Pails are a good choice for demanding export applications, even non-UN, because they have high performance stacking, they are resistant to denting, don’t rust and are 100% recyclable.
