Metal shortage ? Why should we choose cardboard packaging ? 


Metal shortage? Why should we choose cardboard packaging? 

In the current context of environmental concerns, the cardboard drum, also called kraft drum, is the best alternative to metal drums. By choosing the fiber drum you respect the environment. Indeed, by using a renewable resource you participate in sustainable development and circular economy. 

Our cardboard packaging and cardboard drums are perfectly designed for the transport and handling of industrial products. Lighter than metal, cardboard drums are also considerably less noisy than metal. On the other hand, metal can be scarce and its price can vary considerably. This is why choosing the Abzac cardboard drum to package your goods such as powder, paste or even liquid form is a durable, efficient and economical alternative to metal drums.

The advantages of choosing cardboard for your packaging

Cardboard is the best choice for your packaging. Economical, ecological, recyclable and resistant, cardboard drums can be  resistant to temperature variations and corrosion. In case of impact, the fiber drum will simply deform and often recovers its shape, while metal drums, after an impact, remain damaged, the inner varnish if any will show splinters.
