UN1H2Y Packaging – Plastic Pails

5 gallon buckets, 3.5 gallon buckets, spouted plastic covers, screw cap covers, teartab covers

The plastic pails listed in this article all have a UN designation of UN1H2Y.  The UN = United Nations.  The 1 = Drum.  The H = Plastic.  The 2 = Open Head and the Y = Packing Group II (may also be used for Packing Group III).  Again, the UN designation is for hazardous product.  These pails may be used for non-hazardous product also.  We suggest you obtain a sample for compatibility testing with your product.

Our smallest UN rated plastic pail (drum) is the 2 gallon size.  We do stock pails in 1 gallon, 2.5 gallon and 4.25 gallon sizes, however these pails are not UN rated.  For a complete list of all plastic pails, please click here.  The largest pail we stock is the 6.5 gallon size.  Covers are sold separately, and cover choices are listed below the pails.  In the 3.5 gallon through 6.5 gallon heavy duty pails, you may choose either a solid cover or a spouted cover.
