"Scepter developed the first plastic Jerry Can, setting the standards for the industry. Since the original appeared in 1959, we have continued to refine it as new technology made improvements possible. Made from high-density polyethylene, the lightweight, crushproof design has extra headspace built in to accomodate expansion. A threaded vent and a reversible spout make pouring safe and easy. The cans are rustproof, unbreakable and non-corroding."
