After understanding the versatility of pail liners and why we should use them, it is only natural that we start looking at the so many different types of bucket and pail liners out there. Basically bucket and pail liners we are discussing today are not those looking like plastic bags. These liners are pretty solid and still at the same time they protect your pails and buckets from dirt and save them for next reuse. These liners are ideal for batch mixing, food or non-food items thanks to their FDA compliant resin, and they are perfect fit for any standard 5 gallon pails.
These buckets and pail liners are made of different plastic resins to suit your needs. Some are made of Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), which is intended for general use. Some others are made of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) to provide better resistance to inks, adhesives and paints. For liners used in flammable areas, you are advised to take pail liners made of Anti-Static LDPE and HDPE. They come in pink color and they are molded with a special static-dissipating agent to withstand such areas. Then there are also bucket liners made of Polypropylene (PP), which as semi-rigid shape and are best used for hot-filling applications as they withstand higher temperature.
Another feature of these pail liners is they have contoured lip snaps, which enable them to fit snuggly on standard 5 gallon buckets and prevent slippage. You can also choose between the straight-sided pail liners (designed for use with steel pails) and the tapered pail liners (great for plastic pails). Available sizes vary from 2 gallon pail liners to 5 gallon pail liners. Check out your choices below.
