Yes without a doubt back then when plastic was not being invented and highly manufactured yet, these jerry cans are made from metal where it is commonly being seen in war movies as a large metal cans with a “X” mark on the surface as the can was being tied on the back of jeeps to carry the extra fuel for the vehicles and of course none of these can be seen by the 21st centuries Malaysians anymore unless in war movies like I’ve just shared. So, what are the major difference between these 2 types of jerry cans being manufactured in Malaysia – Metal vs Plastic. Metal Jerry Cans are superb popular for military use manufactured to handle the extreme sudden attack during the war time to carry fuel over long journey but the weight itself when being empty is about 10 pound hence adding fuel into it will result to additional shipping cost and at the same time might not be able to withstand the risk of getting rusty hence contaminating the liquid in it especially if it’s drinking water – Imagine transporting drinking water from the States to Asia countries like Malaysia or Singapore, it will become rusty water instead!
On the other hand, Plastic Jerry Cans were introduced in a latter days – 1970’s, as a substitute towards the heavy Metal Jerry Cans which are lighter and easier to be manufactured hence cutting down the cost of it and with its popularity for being able to store and preserve all type of liquids, individuals and companies around the world has started using it including Malaysians. However, as we all know, plastic is more durable but will not be able to withstand extreme weather regarding of it being super cold or super-hot. In a nutshell, if you need to transport any liquid regardless of within Malaysia itself or to overseas, the plastic jerry cans definitely is more cost-friendly and easier to transport and they can easily be obtained from jerry cans manufacturer in Malaysia – Gaia Plas Sdn Bhd!
