Gamma Lids

<< < (2/3) > >>

Redman:
It would be interesting to find out if there have been failures of white or black lids. BTW my buckets are not stacked but one of the has had a large bag of baking soda sitting on it for a couple years.

fritz_monroe:
Sorry to hear that you've had issues.  I only have a half dozen or so in use.  I've kept 2 of them out in the carport for the past 2 years.  I also have several down in the controlled environment of the basement.  I don't stack more than 2 high.  Luckily I haven't had any failures.

The carport lids are black, I have a couple white ones, a yellow and an orange. 

Stwood:
I've had one orange failure. It was the rim part, not the lid.
Cracked down the side after I got it on.
Contacted the amazon seller directly, and they said they've had a orange color problem. Cracking where they attack to the mold, a thin spot.
They replaced the rim only.

Redman:
Looks like that's where cmx's lids are cracking, at the mold sprue attachment. Yeah they could possibly be thin there. Depends on how the break off.

Morning Sunshine:
slightly related, but a tangent....

what does the color of the plastic have to do with the strength?  Does the dye weaken the material in some weird chemical reaction?
