HDPE Plastic Pallet- High-density polyethylene is used in the production of Swift Pallets. Which provides strength, stability under different temperatures.
HDPE plastic has high impact resistance that lets it withstand a great deal of rough handling.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic combines strength, stability under different temperatures. And ease of recycling needed to make a long-lasting, recyclable plastic pallet. In addition to HDPE plastic’s strength, stability, and recyclability, it also has the following advantages:
HDPE plastic has high impact resistance that lets it withstand a great deal of rough handling. This is important in the logistics chain and helps HDPE plastic pallets avoid forklift damage. This helps to avoid other supply chain mishaps.
HDPE plastic pallets resist a wide range of solvents, acids, and bases. Only certain classes of organic solvents like benzene or acetone can do much damage to HDPE. So there is very little risk of damage to the plastic due to spills of product or the use of cleaners.
HDPE isn’t prone to the chemical leaching that can affect other industrial plastics like acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). That means that HDPE is safe for use in grocery supply chain without risk of chemical contamination of food.
HDPE does not absorb water or other liquids. This means that an HDPE plastic pallet’s weight will remain stable regardless of the moisture of the air or contact with liquids. It also means that the pallet won’t retain cleaning substances or odors like wood pallets do. The surface of an HDPE plastic pallet can be easily and effectively cleaned with soap and water and even sanitized by special means.
These advantages mean that pallets made from recycled plastic don’t just support sustainability by providing a new use for plastics, they also reduce waste in the supply chain by reducing the product damage and retailer load rejection caused by contamination of products by chemicals, foreign materials, microbes, or mold on a pallet’s surface.
