Inside Injection Foaming for Polypropylene Pallets


Inside Injection Foaming for Polypropylene Pallets Yield Improved Durability and Sustainability in Replacement of Wood: in Mexico there is a lack of sustainable wood production leading to deforestation issues. An innovative new inside injection foaming process enables high strength, highly durable plastic to replace wood for industrial pallets. The all-polypropylene pallets are entirely recyclable and deliver durability with less material than typically used. They have an expected six year lifetime, versus three years for typical injection polypropylene pallets or two years for wooden ones.
