Learn about the 3 different types of plastic pallets and their differences. Premier is an industry leader in plastic pallet manufacturing.
Molded Plastic Pallets
Molded plastic pallets are a type of pallet made from plastic. They are typically made using injection molding, meaning that molten plastic is injected into a mold to create the desired shape. Molded plastic pallets are often used in applications where hygiene is important, as they can be easily cleaned and disinfected. They are also resistant to pests and rot, making them ideal for use in storage areas. Molded plastic pallets can be customized to meet the specific needs of a particular application, and they are often recycled or reused after their initial use.
Fabricated Plastic Pallets
Fabricated plastic pallets are an increasingly popular choice for warehouse and material handling applications. Plastic pallets offer many benefits over their wood counterparts, including durability, sanitation, and cost savings. Fabricated plastic pallets are typically made from recycled HDPE (high-density polyethylene) or PP (polypropylene) and can be customized to suit the specific needs of your operation.
Composite Plastic Pallets
Composite plastic pallets are a type of pallet made from plastic, typically high-density polyethylene (HDPE). They are designed for use in material handling and storage applications. Composite plastic pallets offer many advantages over traditional wood pallets, including increased durability, resistance to pests and rot, and lower weight. Some disadvantages of composite plastic pallets include higher cost and difficulty in repairing the damage. However, overall, composite plastic pallets are a more durable and eco-friendly option than wood pallets. Also, please follow our plastic pallet cheat sheet.
