The term "plastic carboy" is essentially industrial jargon which means a plastic container of similar size (5 gallons) which is also appropriate for use with corrosive or hazardous materials, within the limitaions of plastic.
While they where probably first developed to serve as a plastic equivalent to their glass counterparts their use has grown to include non-hazardous materials aswell. Due to their efficient size and sturdy construction many industries have found these containers are superior to other methods of shipping and storage for both hazardous and non-hazardous materials.
