Drum liners are typically made from plastic, and are used to eliminate direct contact between the drum and the product it contains. Plastic covers are also available, and prevent other substances from getting into the mouth of the drum and corrupting contents. Liners and covers are often used with drums storing products such as paint, sealants, and powders. Anti-Static drum liners reduce the risk of working with flammable products. Liners come in different sizes, and include options for 55 and 30-gallon drums.
Protect Drums And Products With Drum Liners
Whether heavy or light duty, drum liners help inhibit contamination of the product and also allow for the reuse of the drum. A 55-gallon drum liner prevents product build-up on the inside of the container, making the drum available for other content material.
Benefits of LDPE Plastic Drum Liners
Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is commonly used to make drum liners because it has good chemical resistance, making it compatible with drums containing certain chemicals, cleaning solutions, or laboratory waste. Liners made from LDPE also provide a good moisture barrier, preventing liquids or condensation from penetrating and reaching container contents. Plastic liners are typically affordable options, and their lightweight composition can reduce shipping-related expense.
What Options Are Available?
Choose from a wide variety of 55-gallon drum liners and covers. For additional protection, drum covers can be fitted over 55-gallon drums with open heads, or those with lids or rings. Some covers have UV resistant properties, while others maintain their flexibility even in colder weather. Covers and liners are easy to slip on or off drum heads.
Other packaging options include anti-static drum liners which help dissipate static charges. Anti-static covers are also available, and contain bands that allow them to fit tightly around the drum head. Seamless drum liners prevent product leakage, and some are shaped in an accordion style, which allows you to adjust them to the height of the drum.
