Composite packaging as defined in the 49CRF 171.8 Definitions and Abbreviations is defined as follows” composite packaging means a packaging consisting of an outer packaging and an inner receptacle, so constructed that the inner receptacle and the outer packaging form an integral packaging. Once assembled it remains thereafter an integrated single unit; it is filled, stored, shipped and emptied as such”.
The way that composite packaging differs from combination packaging is that it cannot be taken apart. It must be used as assembled. If it is taken apart, the integrity of the package would be destroyed.
We stock two composite packages. One is a 5 gallon steel pail with a polyethylene liner and the other is a 55 gallon steel drum with a blow molded polyethylene container.

This black steel pail is a composite pail with a plastic liner. The liners are produced separately from the pail and hand assembled. The pail takes a Rieke Flexspout (sold separately) which must be attached with a special crimping tool. The pail comes with a dust cap which is removed and the pail is then filled. When the Flexspout is applied, it seals the liner to the pail, as well as sealing the spout to the pail. There is small hole in the side of the pail which allows any air between the liner and bladder to be forced out. UN6HA1/Y1.8/100
