The 16 gallon steel drum is constructed of first quality cold rolled steel and supplied with rust inhibitor interior*. The plain cover has a 12 gauge bolt type locking ring closure with bolt, nut and gasket.
The open head steel drum or grease drum, is designed, manufactured, and certified to meet UN requirements for hazardous materials under DOT 49 CFR with UN ratings of 1A2/Y1.5/150 & 1A2/X200/S .9/.9/.9 (20 gauge).
Steel drums are environmentally friendly since they can be recycled or reconditioned and repurposed.
*IMPORTANT NOTE: Rust inhibitor applied to the interior of unlined steel containers is an antioxidant that helps inhibit the formation of rust during transit and storage - it does not prevent rusting. Under ideal (clean, low humidity) conditions, drums with rust inhibitor can be stored for up to 30 days without rusting. If empty drums will be stored for longer periods or in higher humidity conditions, consider a phenolic or epoxy lining.
