Polyethylene IBCs are competitively priced and they can be more durable to stainless steel IBC at times. When we consider resistance to minor accidents or bad handling, the elastic nature of the plastic tends to resist minor impact better than steel. In unforeseen circumstances where major impact is concerned, both polyethylene and steel IBC will fracture. The cost to replace the plastic moulding can be as competitive with a weld repair on stainless steel IBC. This is particularly so if the internal of stainless steel IBC is ground/polished. If it is a total replacement, polyethylene IBCs are lower priced too.
Bin lid and body can be made in standard natural, coloured or black conductive medium-density polyethylene (MDPE). Other non-material contact parts like support base, frame and clamp flange can be in stainless steel or mild steel. IBC frame completes with stacking pads (for IBC stacking) and its support structure with two way fork truck transport.
In addition, natural polyethylene containers allow a good visual indication of content level and are usually lighter. Thus, they are easier to handle manually.
