Steel UN Rated Drums

Closed-head (1A1) UN steel drums and open-head (1A2) UN steel drums are available in a variety of sizes; 1 gallon, 5 gallon & 55 gallon UN rated drums are most popular, but we can fulfill special requests for various UN ratings, sizes, styles, linings, and closures. Unlined UN steel drums are the most cost-effective. Phenolic lined & Epoxy-phenolic lined steel UN drums provide maximum protection from dangerous goods that are incompatible with carbon steel; whether a particular lining is suitable, depends on the chemical(s) you're shipping. For questions about chemical compatibility with our epoxy-phenolic or phenolic lined steel UN drums, please contact us.

Plastic UN Rated Drums

Plastic UN rated drums & Plastic UN jerricans provide a cheaper single UN packaging alternative to steel. Our open head (1H2) Plastic UN rated drums vary from 5 - 30 gallons; most feature lever lock lids for easy access. This open top style is designed for solids or inner packagings. Compatibility must be ensured between chemicals and HDPE plastic UN packaging (utilizing a UN rated drum doesn't ensure suitability). For liquid solvent-based chemicals & aliphatic hydrocarbons that can permeate & degrade plastics, our specially designed plastic UN jerricans are a great alternative. Made with barrier resin technology - which replaces fluorination - to safely transport a wide range of dangerous goods.  For more information on compatibility with our UN rated jerricans, please refer here

Fibre UN Rated Drums

Fibre UN rated drums provide shippers with flexibility when shipping articles, solids, or dangerous goods in inner packaging(s). Fibre (1G) UN rated drums are typically a lighter & cheaper than comparable sized steel & plastic drum options. Lever-lock lids make assembly and un-packaging a breeze. And despite their lean frame, our fibre drums are UN rated to safely carry some serious weight; perfect for heavy articles or batteries that exceed allowable gross weights for 4G & 4GV boxes.
