As reported in world-wide news outlets, there is currently a global shortage of available steel for all uses. The following is a link to a news article summarizing the situation.
As a result, drum manufacturers are shifting their manufacturing capabilities away from 30-gallon drums to their larger 55-gallon market. Ascensus is proactively managing the situation by broadening our supply network for this package. While we do not foresee any interruption in the supply of any Ascensus products, there will be visual changes to product packing for Ascensus products that use the 30-gallon drum, including Potassium tert-Butoxide powder (KTB Powder), Sodium tert-Amylate powder (STA Powder), Sodium Triacetoxyborohydride (STAB), and Methylboronic Acid (MBA).
