"Everyone should treat the handling, transport and storage of all flammable liquids very seriously."

To help address growing consumer concern for safety related to personal fuel containers, Midwest Can has developed our exclusive FlameShield Safety System℠. Now every Midwest Can portable fuel container has our new FlameShield Safety System℠.
The FlameShield Safety System℠ is comprised of two critical elements – our vapor locking Quick-Flow Spout – plus a special internal flame mitigation device. This two-piece system provides consumers with a "double layer of protection" from accidental fires that can result when improperly handing and storing gasoline and other flammable liquids.
Independent testing has confirmed that portable plastic fuel containers equipped with internal flame mitigation devices reduce the chance of personal injury when improperly used around a fire or spark. The internally placed flame mitigation device helps prevent dangerous flame jetting or container combustion when containers are improperly used in the presence of a spark or fire.
