Thickness of Plastic Material in FloTool Super Duty Drain Container FT42004


How thick is the plastic in the body of the oil container? I had one similar to this style that developed a hole in it from sliding it in and out under my vehicle.

My contact at FloTools did not have a material thickness specification handy for their Super Duty Drain Container # FT42004 so I went to our warehouse to handle this item and to measure hits thickness at the points where it is possible to do so.

The thickness of the material at the large fill port (inside the recessed area) and at the side drain port is 3mm. Although I cannot confirm this, based on handling this item and thinking of the various oil drain pan items I have owned, this one felt about the same in terms of overall weight and toughness. I would estimate the thickness of the material at the main large surfaces to be less than at the fill/drain ports. I will unofficially estimate this as 2mm.
