  •  Body sidewall contains pigment and UV stabilizers to offer maximum protection from the sun
  • Lighter weight – about half as heavy as steel drums, allowing for greater payloads
  • The conical shape allows empty drums to be nested allowing warehouse efficiency to be improved by up to 75%
  • Incredible Reverse Logistic efficiencies. 828 empty N55 drums with lids and bands can be shipped on a standard 53’ trailer.
  • A long life cycle meanis the N55 will long outlast their steel counterparts, providing many more trip cycles
  • The patented molded strapping channel allows proper restraint while the drum is on the pallet and during shipments (Banding of drums on pallet is recommended for increased stability)
  • Designed to be easily handled with conventional drum handling equipment
  • Consistent container dimensions which eliminates “sorting” of steel drums
