The 56W55D is a UN Rated 55 gallon blue tight head plastic drum. This blow molded drum is made of industrial strength high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE) plastic similar to HDPE but more durable, with extra thick walls to provide superior performance and long lasting durability. The seamless construction of this closed head drum is suitable for outdoor use.
Our 55 gallon tight head composite drums are designed for packing aggressive and corrosive materials. These drums comply with stringent UN regulations and have been modified to contain a one-piece blow-molded polyethylene liner. Composite drums combine the strength of a steel drum with the chemical safety of a plastic drum. Great for customers that need the strength and integrity of a steel drum and the compatibility of a plastic drum.
