Important qualities of UN drums

A UN-approved or UN-certified drum stands for safety and security. The certification ensures that the solid mechanical strength of a UN-approved drum is maintained, as it proves that the quality of the UN drums is under constant surveillance: tests are performed during every production run.

The screw-top closure of UN-approved CurTec drums prevents leakage, which reduces the risk of shipments being subjected to border control or customs inspections. Moreover, UN-approved CurTec drums allow for stable stacking on a pallet, which helps avoid damaging during transportation and reduces the chance of rejection during customs inspections.
