You want the best for your business. You should demand the best for your business, even if it doesn’t yet. It can be difficult to choose the best pallet material, given the many options available.
We will be discussing the pros and cons of different types of plastic pallet materials. You should now have a better understanding of which material is best for you and your company.
1. Fiberglass Plastic Pallets
Only a handful of manufacturers have the ability to make fiberglass pallets. Fiberglass is extremely flexible and impact-resistant, making it an excellent choice for many applications. Fiberglass pallets are fire-resistant because of the nature of their material. This gives them an advantage over traditional wood options.
These advantages make fiberglass pallets very popular in many industries such as automotive, medical and aerospace, as well food processing. These pallets, which average 50 pounds in weight, can usually handle static loads up to 60,000 lbs. These pallets are extremely strong but also have the highest price tag due to the hard production process. Due to their limited availability, they may be hard to find.
2. Polyolefin Plastic Pallets
Polyolefin pallets can be an attractive option. They are made from a mixture of high density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) and cellulose. These types of plastic pallets have two main advantages: their rigidity, and low cost. These pallets are difficult to mold and can be brittle.
This can pose challenges for users. These pallets shouldn’t be exposed to water, so they are not recommended for use in wet environments. These pallets may be an affordable option if you don’t mind moisture-related issues and want to keep your budget in check.
3. HDPE Plastic Pallets – Benefits and Drawbacks
Use it in cutting boards, milk jugs and plastic bottles. High Density Polyethylene is a plastic that’s well-known for its versatility. HDPE can also be used for stronger items such as snowboards, underground pipes and plastic lumber. It is known for its durability, corrosion resistance, and strength. HDPE has been a staple in American manufacturing since 1950s. It has rapidly grown to be the most widely used plastic today.
HDPE is ideal for plastic pallets because it provides excellent impact resistance, weatherproofing and stability. Your pallets will not be damaged even if transit is difficult. HDPE pallets are expected to be heavy and dense due to their durability. HDPE plastic is lightweight so they are easier to transport and more affordable to handle.
HDPE is a durable plastic material that can also be recycled often. You have a reliable pallet that you can trust to be used again and again.
HDPE pallets are more expensive than traditional wooden ones. This is a potential problem. However, as the old saying goes, “You get what you pay” and HDPE is the most popular and cheapest of all the plastic materials on this list.
