Reminder: 29 Gauge (Black Plate) Steel is being Replaced with 28 Gauge (Cold Rolled) Steel

April 14, 2023 | By Jeff Swan | Topics: Covers, Litho Pails, Plain Pails, Press Release

I’m excited to announce we will begin using 28 gauge (Cold Rolled) steel to replace our 29 gauge (Black Plate) steel starting in May 2023, depending on your pail plant.

This means 29 gauge (Black Plate) pails and covers will be replaced with 28 gauge (Cold Rolled) steel pails and covers moving forward.

You can read all about this change on our website at www.cscpails/ or by following the link here!

Below you can see an example of how the CSC Part Numbers and Item Descriptions will differ after we switch over to 28 Gauge (Cold Rolled). Changes are highlighted in yellow.
