Plastic or Steel? Which one suits you?
When it comes to storing fuel, whether for transportation, recreation or emergency purposes, it’s important to choose a container that is durable, safe, and reliable. Wavian Steel fuel cans, also known as jerry cans, are a popular choice for fuel storage among consumers and our UK based team has many years of experience selling fuel cans to all corners of the world.
In this article, we will discuss the advantages of using steel fuel cans and why they are a great investment for anyone in need of a dependable fuel storage solution.
Advantages of Steel Fuel Cans:
Steel is a strong and durable material that can withstand a lot of wear and tear. Unlike plastic fuel cans, steel cans are less prone to cracking or puncturing, which makes them more reliable for long-term use.
Resistance to Corrosion:
Wavian steel fuel cans are typically coated with a layer of rust-resistant paint, which helps to prevent corrosion and prolong their lifespan. This is particularly important if you plan to store fuel for an extended period of time, as rust can damage the container and compromise its integrity. The interior of the cans is coated with a layer of ‘rezol‘, this is a special chemical that prevents rust and this is also why you shouldn’t store water or other liquids in our fuel cans as water will actually break down this coating whereas diesel or petrol won’t.

Safe for Transportation:

This is especially important if you plan to transport fuel in your car or any other vehicle, as it can pose a serious safety risk if not properly secured.
Compliance with Regulations:
In the UK market, steel fuel cans are subject to strict regulations to ensure their safety and reliability. They are designed to meet the standards set by the United Nations for the transportation of dangerous goods, which means they have undergone rigorous testing to ensure they can withstand pressure, impacts, and other hazards. All our Wavian steel fuel cans meet (and exceed) these requirements.
