In addition to IBC totes (including reconditioned totes and 275 gallon totes), Encore Container manufactures plastic drums made out of 100% virgin resin or 100% post-industrial resin, also known as "regrind". Because Encore Container makes many drums out of environmentally friendly regrind, costs to the customer are lower. Considerably less waste is sent to landfills, limiting our environmental impact.
We can also manufacture a two-layer plastic drum. This means that, for example, we can manufacture the inside layer of the drum with virgin resin to meet FDA requirements and the exterior layer with regrind to reduce cost and waste. Another example of a two-layer drum is with custom colors. Encore Container can manufacture the inside layer with the standard black color, and the outside can be manufactured with a custom color of your choice.
What makes the Encore Container plastic drums better?
The Encore Container plastic drum has an integrated foot ring which provides stability and hand holds. Because of the drum design and additional amount of resin put into every drum, costly spills and clean-ups are practically eliminated. Encore Container's drums have a clean, smooth finish with no water marks.
