As the structural foundation of a unit load, plastic pallets support goods in a stable fashion and allow handling & storage efficiencies.

Because of its sturdy, clean, easy-to-handle, easy-to-storage, and easy-to-move characteristics, it is also often bought and put in the home for special purposes.

For example, at Christmas time, we can put a tray under the Christmas tree, which is definitely a very good idea.

Strong Blue Polyethylene Pallet

Although a bit expensive, this is a plastic pallet that is durable and strong enough.

Because it is mainly used in traditional logistics and manufacturing, this product has undergone enough extreme quality tests: such as drop test, extreme use environment test, it is a piece of cake for it. This plastic pallet can be safely placed in an ice storage or high-temperature environment.

The manufacturer of this product, founded in 1968, focuses on materials handling equipment, including hoists and trolleys, jib and gantry cranes, loading dock equipment, and storage solutions.

  • It holds a lot of weight, is very sturdy, and surprisingly easy to move. 
  • Easy to hose off if it gets dirty, and it doesn’t rot in the damp like wooden pallets do

Spill Containment Pallet

I recommend this plastic pallet because of its strong liquid leak-proof function.

If you need plastic pallets to hold liquids, such as wine or oil, I highly recommend this product. It can save you a lot of trouble, especially if you are very worried about the leakage of these liquids.

8,000 lb load capacity & 66-gallon spill capacity!

  • We have four pallets for used oil on it and it works as we planned.
  • Quick delivery and great product for the price
     

Some knowledge about plastic pallets

If you want to purchase plastic pallets in bulk, I think you know this knowledge before buying.

Choose the Right Pallet

There are many types of plastic pallets according to different uses.

Consider the material – PP or PE (HDPE)

PP and PE are both important raw materials for plastic pallets.

PP

Also known as polypropylene, it is a semicrystalline thermoplastic.

It has high impact resistance, mechanical sub-strong, resistance to a variety of organic solvents, and acid-base corrosion.

Polypropylene is mainly used in the production of plastic pallets, plastic tables and chairs, plastic trash cans, plastic film, and so on.

PE

The name is polyethylene, which is one of the most commonly used polymer materials in daily life. Polyethylene is resistant to a variety of organic solvents, resistant to a variety of acid-base corrosion, but not antioxidant acids, such as nitric acid.

It could be oxidized in an oxidizing environment.

Polyethylene is used in large quantities to make plastic trays, plastic trash cans, plastic tables and chairs, plastic bags, plastic film, milk barrel products.

What is the difference between a plastic pallet of PP and PE material?

Physically, PP makes plastic trays that are more flexible than PE-made plastic trays and are impact-resistant.

PP is more resistant to high temperatures than PE and can be used at pasteurized temperatures.

Consider the main parameter

For pallets, the load capacity is the most important parameter.

There are three dimensions to reflect the load capacity: Static load, Dynamic load, Racking/shelf load.

 

Static Load

A static load is defined as a non-varying load; when weight is placed on an object that is kept at rest.

Dynamic Load

A dynamic load refers to the weight that is placed on an object and then put in motion.

Racking/Shelf Load

A racking load is the strength load rating for when a pallet is placed in a racked system.

 

Load Capacity Test

1. Corner drop test

The purpose of this test is to determine the diagonal rigidity of the top deck of the pallet and its resistance to impact.

2. Static shear test

The purpose of this test is to simulate the approximate forces induced through lateral deck shear.

3. Bottom deck bending tests

The purpose of this test is to determine the strength and stiffness of the bottom deck between block or stingers when handling on twin rack conveyors or narrow span beam rack supports.

4. Stacking test

The purpose of this test is to determine the ability of the pallet top and bottom decks to withstand the local effects of widely varying payloads on sub spans of decks between blocks and stringers in a block-stacking situation.

5. Compression tests for blocks or stringers

The purpose of this test is to determine the compression stiffness and strength of the blocks or stringers of the pallet.

6. Fork lifting tests

The limiting condition of use for non-rackable and non-stackable single or double-deck pallets is the bending of the pallet on fork arm supports under the top deck of the pallet. With a forklift test, we can measure the bending strength and bending stiffness.

7. Static airbag bending test

The purpose of this form of bending test is to simulate, as near as practically feasible, certain load applications as commonly encountered in the field.

8. Static wing pallet bending test

The purpose of these tests is to determine the bending strength and the bending stiffness of winged pallets during lifting with slings.

9. Static bending test

The purpose of these tests is to determine the bending strength and the bending stiffness of the pallet in pallet in racking situations.
