SÆPLAST is a world leader in the design and production of double-walled, insulated tubs and three-layer, specially strengthened PE tubs and palettes for use in manufacture of food products and in the recycling industry.

Our guiding light in the design and production of SÆPLAST products is that they must meet the most stringent requirements of our customers, which come from a wide field of operations and from different sectors of the economy. SÆPLAST products are particularly strong, durable and with a high insulating capacity. The smooth surface ensures easy cleaning and greatly improves food safety.

The production process is based on the rotocasting method in which the plastic raw material is introduced into a closed mould and rotated on two axes in an oven. When the mould heats up, the raw material melts and settles on its inner surface and when all the plastic material has melted the mould is taken out of the oven and cooled down.

From the outset, SÆPLAST has maintained its reputation as a manufacturer of top quality products, offering excellent services.



SÆPLAST is among the best-known export companies in Iceland. Its origin may be traced to Dalvík, a fishing town in Northern Iceland where the company was established in 1984. All the time since then the production of rotocast, insulated storage tubs has been the mainstay of the production of Sæplast and the company has been in the forefront in the wold in the design and production of these goods. During the first years, the company mostly served customers in the fishing industry but since then other branches of the food industry have brought the products of SÆPLAST into use.

Today, Sæplast has three factories, in Iceland, in New Brunswick in Canada and in Spain. The sales net of Sæplast is based on sales offices and representatives selling the company’s products all over the world.
