New Steel Drum


drummed bitumen

    Drummed Bitumen has been the most common type of packaging. Qualities of the drums have been improving during these years. We always use New Steel Drums for packing. Drums vary in terms of net weight capacity, height and body thickness. The most common and standard drums have the body thickness of 0.6 mm. Height of the drums are 98 CMs for standard drums and 86 CM for small drums (140 KG and 155 KE net drums), however we have the required tools to adjust the height of the drums, based on the customer’s choice

Poly Cube

Poly Cube bags have nowadays started to become one of the most demanding types of packing from customers around the world. Features of Poly Bags Packing:

  • No waste at destination once cargo arrives.
  • Melt able in melting machine without impacting the quality of the bitumen
  • Easier to handle
  • Parallel price with drums packing while loading higher capacity per 20’ DC unit.
  • Being in various weights, such as 25KG, 50KG, 300 KG, 800 KG and 1000 KG.

We are capable to provide with you bitumen in Polybags. Our Polybags are made of two layers of Polymer as well as an extra internal layer. These Polybags can be easily melted in melting machine along with bitumen and it makes the road look a little bit shinier

The Future of Poly Cube

The POLYCUBE Package contents the filling of the bitumen as well as the loading and transport and ends with the liquefaction at the customers place.
The POLYCUBE is a special transport container that was developed for the cold transport of pasty and viscous materials in particular bitumen.
A POLYCUBE differs considerably from the traditional Big Bag when it comes to quality, size, shape and design.


In terms of design and use of materials, the solution was aimed deliberately at the high demands imposed by the international cold transport of bitumen, to guarantee toughness, self-stabilization, and at the same time, maximum flexibility for a competitive price.
