A plastic handling pallet is mainly produced from virgin or Recycled HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) aggregate.
The virgin granules come directly from industry; the recycled ones are sorted, cleaned and then crushed. Traditional recycling circuits operate very strict quality controls, for example, recycled plastic (HDPE) can come from fruit juice bottles or from the corks of your favourite waters.
How are plastic pallets made ?
There are several methods of manufacturing plastic pallets: extrusion, high pressure injection molding or thermoforming.
The most qualitative process is high pressure injection moulding. The plastic granulates are heated and automatically conveyed to high-pressure presses weighing several tons.
After cooling, the plastic pallet obtains the characteristics defined by the mould and the density of the injected material. The advantage of this manufacturing method is that it produces a pallet in one piece, i.e. in one piece.
The essential characteristic of a plastic pallet is the preservation of its dimensions. It is therefore unaffected by changes in temperature or humidity.

Lightweight and non-deformable, they are approved for export without requiring ISPM15 certification. Nestable you can easily store them in your warehouses in a minimum of space. We present to you 1 model of construction monobloc for its qualities of robustness and manufacture and 1 model 100% repairable out of PVC.
The plastic half-pallet is called half, because of its external dimensions equivalent to half of an 80X120. 6 different models from light to heavy and for use in lost pallet or multi-rotation (multi-use).
The most widely used dimension is the "standard" format resulting from the creation in the 1950s of the SNCF wooden model allowing exchanges between economic actors across Europe via the railway networks.

Plastic pallet compliance
Not affected by the ISPM15 standard which is mandatory for wood packaging for export
It can be exported very easily and without risk of mould or fungus appearance during long container trip.
Environment and End of Life
As with the packaging mentioned above, when the plastic pallet is unusable, it re-enters the recycling circuit to be incorporated into the manufacture of new plastic products.
Benefits and Uses
Weight: Our plastic pallets are lighter than wooden pallets for example. With an equivalent characteristic, the plastic pallet will weigh half as much. Safety: The recycled HDPE plastic pallet contains no screws or nails. Space saving: For nestable models, a storage gain of more than 50% compared to pallets that cannot be nested. Hygiene: The one-piece construction makes the plastic pallet non-porous and waterproof. It is easily washable even under high pressure and is resistant to detergents. No more risk of falling wood in your warehouses, your laboratories, or in your clean rooms which guarantees a better cleanliness.
Our plastic pallet "special protected environments & hygiene" reinforces these provisions with its tray and its completely smooth soles.
Aesthetics: Our Plastic pallets reinforce the feeling of solidity, durability and cleanliness.
