Technical guidelines


The products manufactured at UAB Plastis meet the standard requirements
defined by law. UAB Plastis therefore satisfies the specifications of the
Consumer Goods Ordinance. The thermoplastic polypropylene (PP) used
by UAB Plastis in production satisfies the above-mentioned Ordinance and
the connected requirements in full.

Nevertheless, the flawless use of UAB Plastis products is connected to
technical regulations. Damage to the filling materials, the filling machines,
our products themselves or even handling problems in logistics can only be
avoided, if the products are used as specified in these regulations. If the
buyer does not comply with the respective regulations, UAB Plastis will no
longer promise the technical properties of the product. Also, the guarantee
will be invalidated and no liability will be assumed for damages to the buyer
or users. This disclaimer also includes damage to our product and the filling
materials, as well as subsequent damage to other legal goods created by
extraneous handling of the products. The technical data and regulations
are integral parts of all delivery contracts.


All containers developed and manufactured by UAB Plastis are designed
as disposable packaging. This means that all container properties only
apply when the container is filled for the first time.
In some cases, UAB Plastis will absolve itself from the guarantee. This
primarily refers to the following points with respect to the compatibility of
the container and the filling materials:

Barrier properties
As the requirements for the use of packaging vary greatly (permeability of
gases, vapours and aromas), it is not possible to make a general statement
about this. Each case needs to be reviewed separately to check the extent
to which barrier properties are adequate for the respective filling material.

Hot filling and freezing
Hot filling and freezing of the filling material may have a negative impact on
the properties and handling of the containers. For instance, hot fillings may
lead to a lower possible stacking height. In this case, the customer has a
responsibility to test and verify the respective processes.
The tightness of the containers can only be controlled to a limited extent.
The responsibility for establishing and verifying suitability lies with the
Aggressive media
The properties of the plastic packaging may be changed, if solvents or
other aggressive media are used. Consequently, this will reduce the
mechanical resistance of the containers.


During transportation, the containers are exposed to various loads. This
includes, for instance, sliding and falling over, but also moisture, dirt and
direct sunlight. For this reason, suitable load securing needs to be ensured.

The plastics used by UAB Plastis will tend to become brittle if exposed to
UV radiation. Also, paint losses and fading of dyed items are possible. UAB
Plastis cannot guarantee the properties of the containers, if products are
exposed to UV radiation, or if the storage temperature is too low (material
becomes brittle) or too high (material becomes softer). Also, the
guaranteed standard durability of the container of 6 months refers to the
maximum filling weights and stacking figures when stored on a flat Euro
pallet as specified in the technical data sheet. The storage temperature
should be 20°C.


To avoid damage caused by UV radiation, the impact of direct sunlight
must be avoided when storing empty containers. Also, the empty
containers must be stored in a clean and dry place that is not subject to
heavy temperature fluctuations. Static charging of our items is generally
prevented thanks to the use of an antistatic agent; however this protection
will dwindle after a storage period in excess of 6 months. Incorrect storage
temperature and humidity conditions reduce or shorten the antistatic effect.

Further processing
To prevent impairment of the container properties, steps must be taken to
ensure that the temperature of the container at the processing time lies
