A gallon of juice used for distructive testing. What a unique concept. Being more realistic, There should be engineering numbers available to better evaluate the strength and durablility of this material.

Have you looked at these units ? Look at the Top Loaded refrigeration units in the "Products" section - using one of them will be fast, probably cost less and may well have a better finish than a home-made unit:

Isotherm

A gallon of pineapple juice is probably 8 lbs. or so. If the can is thrown with maximum force at the panel, and hits on the edge of the bottom, it has a fair chance of breaking the panel... since all the force will be concentrated in a very small portion of a square inch.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
