Plastic UN jars

The benefits of plastic UN jars. Transporting dangerous goods is no mean feat. To support a safe transportation process, the United Nations have established a universal system, setting out clear rules for the classification, packaging, marking, and labeling of dangerous goods. All national and international regulations governing road, rail, maritime, and air transportation are based on this UN system.

Our (plastic) UN jar solutions

Having designed a range of top-notch screw-lid plastic jars that can be opened and closed with great ease, CurTec offers the best available quality. Our plastic UN jars’ water-vapor tight closure helps prevent product spoils caused by moisture. Additionally, our Small Volume Containers – which combine five different features – are suitable for a variety of applications in the pharmaceutical, specialty chemicals, and food ingredients industries. Their tear-off strip on the screw lid shows when the contents have been tampered with, and the smooth inside of the screw-top jars allows you to remove every last drop or grain of product, thus providing you with maximum value for money. Offering high-quality plastic jars – either with or without a UV barrier – that are UN certified for solids, CurTec ensures that your hazardous materials are safely shipped from point A to B.


The fact that all CurTec drums, pails, and (plastic) jars are UN certified means that their mechanical strength is constantly verified through the performance of drop and stacking tests. They are easy to stack and user friendly, as the shape of the drum base has been adapted to the lid. Briefly put, a perfect fit and a prerequisite for proper pallet packing and securing.
CurTec continuously performs extensive quality tests on its drums and containers. If you’d like to see proof of performance, we can show you accreditation documents regarding moisture vapor transmission and transportation simulations as well as UN and DOT reports.
