Used Plastic Pallets Used plastic pallets are plastic pallets that have been used in storage or transportation applications and are still suitable for future use. Most plastic pallets survive their first several uses after manufacturing. In fact, many plastic pallets are reusable for years depending on how demanding their application is and how well they are handled.

The state of how well they are handled also affects whether they are reusable. Plastic pallets are rigid structures that provide mechanical stability to a bulk quantity of goods during handling to preserve their quality. Handling activities include lifting, stacking, product storage, and long-distance transportation by sea or land. To properly facilitate the included activities, plastic pallets are designed to be moveable using equipment such as pallet jacks, front loaders, and forklifts. Pallets can be made from different materials, but plastic is generally used because it is cost-effective, hygienic, and lightweight.

Plastic Pallets Manufacturing Processes

Plastic pallets can be manufactured through processes such as injection molding, structural foam molding, rotational molding, or thermoforming. For example, the injection molding process injects a high-pressure transfer of molten plastic material into the mold, where it solidifies and cools down. Thermoforming is also a process that works by heating plastic sheets to their forming temperature. This is then followed by stretching or pressing them over a mold for the heated plastic to be able to take its shape. Structural foam molding is a type of low-pressure injection molding which involves feeding an inert gas into the molten plastic. This is done to decrease the density and weight of the plastic pallet.

Types of Plastic Pallets

Plastic pallets are grouped according to the mode of support on the pallet's top deck. The number of entry points can also be used to classify plastic pallets. These types include stringer plastic pallets, block plastic pallets, two-way plastic pallets, and four-way plastic pallets.

Stringer Plastic Pallet

The stringer plastic pallet has the top deck being supported by longitudinal, parallel slabs called stringers. The stringers are positioned in opposite edges and across the center of the pallet.

Block Plastic Pallet

This type of plastic pallet has the top deck supported by columnar posts, which are referred to as blocks. The blocks are positioned in the corners, the center of each edge, and the center.

Two Way Plastic Pallet

The two-way plastic pallet only allows entry on two sides of the pallet, opposite each other. The entry points are limited, so the handling equipment must maneuver at a specific angle to access the pallet. For the pallets to be accessed by the handling equipment, they must be stored at a specific orientation resulting in the exposure of the entry points. All stringer pallets that are not modified are two-way pallets. Two-way pallets can be converted into four-way pallets. This conversion includes the creation of notches. The creation of notches can be done easily in wooden stringer pallets but is not feasible in plastic pallets. The implemented conversion results in reduced strength and load capacity of two-way pallets. The deck designs and the configuration can be used to distinguish between plastic pallets.

Four Way Plastic Pallet

This type of pallet allows entry on each side of the pallet. The four-way plastic pallet provides more handling efficiency, i.e., less loading and unloading time. This is so especially when the floor space is small because all sides are accessible by the handling equipment. Most block pallets are four-way pallets.

Applications and Uses of Used Plastic Pallets

Plastic pallets are used for exporting and importing goods to desired destinations. This is made easier with forklifts and jerks. In displaying goods, plastic pallets are used for merchandising as they reduce the risk of damaging a product when it is moved from one point to another. In the beverage and foodstuff industry, plastic pallets are used because they are lightweight, compact, durable, and not susceptible to failure during use.
