Elasticated Polythene Covers

Elasticated polythene covers can be used like drum covers to protect the tops of bins, open boxes, dolavs and other various shaped containers.  The elasticated polythene cover helps prevent the risk of contamination when used in food production environments but can also be used to prevent water damage on steel drums which are stored outside.  The fitting and removal of these covers is very easy, the elasticated edge helps the cover to cling to the top of the container which makes then re-usable.

Available in a variety of thicknesses, colours or sizes, these elasticated polythene covers can be manufactured to suit most requirements.  Can be manufactured as circular, rectangular and square sheets or shaped like a box.

Additives which might improve performance:

  • VCI for anti rusting, used as masking covers for car parts or spray painting
  • Anti Static prevents static shock or risk of ignition/explosion.
  • Anti Fog
  • Anti Slip or Anti Block
  • UVI to prevent the material breaking down or beocmming brittle in sunlight.
  • Once we get to know your application then we can likely suggest suitable options.


One example recently made was an anti static cover, 120 inches in diameter with a central 20 inch diameter cut out.  The central cut out circle was also fixed with elastic, closing to 8″ diameter.  The outer fixing of elastic allowed the cover to be fixed over the top of the drum.  The inner cut out fixed with elastic allowed operatives to move a mixing device around the drum, without the need to remove the cover.
