Most Plastic Pallets are made of HDPE or PP.
What is the difference between those two materials?
Some special attention should be paid to the characteristics of materials used at extreme temperatures when selecting.
Polyethylene (PE) has good impact resistance and cold resistance, good oil resistance, extremely small water absorption, and low water permeability, Good electrical insulation, wide adaptability, is the most ideal material for plastic pallets. So if used in cold storage, recommend using PE material. Like most foods, beverage companies.
Polypropylene (Plastics-Polypropylene, referred to as PP) has excellent mechanical properties, high strength, elasticity, good bending fatigue resistance, good heat resistance, and good chemical stability. In addition to being corroded by concentrated sulfuric acid, It is relatively stable to other chemical reagents. Polypropylene has excellent high-frequency insulation properties and hardly absorbs water. Therefore, it is better to use polypropylene trays at higher temperatures. Like the middle-east market. These are things to pay attention to.
In addition, plastic pallets are prone to aging, slip easily on the shelves, and dark materials have poor reflective performance. Avoid using them in three-dimensional warehouses. In addition, the service life of plastic pallets is greatly affected by virgin and recycled materials. Recycling materials will greatly reduce the performance of the pallets. This is a special concern.
The main factors that determine the cost of the plastic pallet are the material and the amount of material used, which need to be paid attention to when purchasing the pallet.
