Working closely with PPG Industries, Russell-Stanley developed the Clean Drum. It is the first high-density polyethylene drum in the coatings industry and took more than two years to commercialize. The 55-gallon open-head container has minimized the risk of any potential contaminants making their way into the production process. Plus, the cleaning process done at the Russell-Stanley plant in Addison, IL, saves valuable time in rework and cleaning of other containers at the filling location.
