Con-Tech offers plastic drum plugs and parts

Con-Tech offers a wide variety of plastic drum plugs, drum closures, and accessories including drum cap seals, steel drum nuts and bolts, steel drum metal ring accessories, nylon drum plugsdrum plug gaskets, drum paint caps, and drum cap seal crimping tools. Con-Tech drum cap seals are printable with your own logo, while a complete assortment of open head drum rings nuts and bolts also is available. Likewise, our drum bolts, nuts, lugs, and latches offer reliable, cost-effective security for all of your steel drums.

Con-Tech offers plastic drum plugs for 55-gallon steel drums. We carry 2″ and 3/4″ plastic drum plugs with the NPT threads and can supply plugs made of nylon and polypropylene. Our nylon drum plug has been subjected to extensive testing by Factory Mutual, also known as FM. This means both our 2” and ¾” plugs are Factory Mutual FIRE RATED.

Our nylon drum plugs are recommended for customers that transport and/or store flammable or combustible contents in the drums. In case of a fire, the nylon drum plugs will melt and pop out of the drum in a quick manner relieving the pressure from inside the container. Con-Tech FM approved nylon drum plugs make steel drums in fire situations much safer than plastic drums or plastic composite IBC’s. We supply our nylon drum plugs with Poly-irradiated, BUNA or EPDM gaskets. Vented nylon drum plugs are also available in 2″ and 3/4″ sizes.

Con-Tech drum closures and accessories are used with various drums including closed-head steel drums that are used for shipment and more permanent storage of liquids like chemicals and petroleum and open head steel drums with their removable lids which are more commonly used for storage than shipping. Drum closures are devices used to seal drums in order to protect the contents against air, dirt, liquid and other contaminants during transportation and storage. The drum closures are covered with cap seals to prevent tampering and further protect the contents.

Plastics come in thousands of varieties with different base chemistries, derivatives, and additives that are formulated to cover a wide range of functional and aesthetic properties. When selecting a manufacturing process for a plastic product companies consider the form, volume, lead time and material needed for the project.

Did You Know?

Sustainability plays a role in each stage of a plastic drum's life. These versatile, eco-friendly containers
can be used, reused and recycled, again and again. Used for chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and food and flavorings, plastic drums protect their contents and prevent leaching, leaks and spills. They do not dent, rust or corrode. Recycling just one plastic drum is equivalent to recycling 500 beverage bottles or more than 2,000 plastic grocery bags.
