Plastic pallets are a flat transport structure that are majorly used for supporting goods in a stable fashion while they are being lifted with the help of a forklift, pallet jack, front loader etc. Generally made from HDPE or recycled PET, plastic pallets are ideal for handling and storage purposes owing to their features such as extreme durability, optimal resistance to chemicals, corrosion and weathering.
Plastic pallets can be easily sanitized and provide effective protection to the products stored inside. Plastic pallets are manufactured by various processes such as high pressure injection molding, structural foam molding, thermoforming, compression molding etc.
These pallets are very sturdy and free from excessive joints, hence, preferred over wood pallets for various industrial and commercial purposes. A steady increase has been noticed in their usage in recent years as these are low maintenance and economical.
