100% environmentally-friendly Kraft drums

By choosing Abzac cardboard drums, you opt for environmentally-friendly, innovative and sustainable industrial packaging. It's also a reassuring solution as fibre drum supplies will always be available and there'll be no shortages!

Abzac has adopted a sustainable development policy and aims to meet its customers' technical requirements via an extensive range of cardboard drums or Kraft drums. In order to always meet demands to reduce the use of resources, Abzac has developed lighter cardboard drums without reducing their technical capabilities.

Fibre drums are mainly made from Kraft, a material that is also a renewable resource.

Kraft drums are a custom packaging solution and are lightweight and easy to handle, all advantages in terms of reducing transport costs and strenuous work.

Compared to metal drums and plastic drums, Kraft drums are more environmentally-friendly in terms of the use of resources (weight of materials used) and pollution.

As they are lighter, they help to reduce transport costs. This also means they generate less CO2.
