Supply chain disruptions may cause some fillers and shippers of steel drums to either utilize new ingredients or reformulate a product to compensate for ingredient shortages. Whenever this situation occurs, consideration must be given to the compatibility of any lining specified in steel drums. A lining once suitable for a product may no longer be suitable if the product is reformulated or a change in process has occurred between product batches. Our trade association, the International Steel Drum Institute (ISDI), has provided Alert 22-01: Selecting Steel Drum Linings for Product Compatibility to assist our customers in selecting compatible linings. Please contact our sales department if you have any questions.
