Why Use 40 Gallon Poly Drums

Perfectly fills the gap between 55 gallon and 30 gallon plastic drums with a much needed product to bridge that missing drum product in the full lineup from small to large plastic containers.

Our tapered drums are extremely strong and rigid, yet far lighter than their steel counterparts. Lightweight for ease of handling and savings on shipping.

Certified for use with solids.

Tapered shape and nestability means simplified storage and transportation with ease of handling.

High Density Polyethylene is chemically resistant to many chemicals used in industrial operations. Please refer to chemicals compatibility charts before storing or shipping hazardous material in this packaging as you would with any chemicals compatibility issues in your operations.

What is Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene

Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene is quite often referred to as the world’s toughest polymer. UHMW plastic is chemical resistant and has a low coefficient of friction, which make it highly effective in a variety of applications. UHMW is also a linear high density polyethylene, which has high impact strength as well as high abrasion resistance.
