New And Used Heat-Treated Pallets In Austin

Why Are Heat-Treated Pallets Necessary?

If you are shipping products internationally or to specific domestic customers, many now require a heat-treated pallet to comply with international regulations, complete with a stamp on the pallet and a certificate of compliance. Used/recycled pallets can be heat treated to meet these standards, at a much lower cost than buying a brand new heat treated pallet.

This is because many foreign countries require that all crates made out of the wood being shipped from the United States be heat treated to reduce the risk of pest infestation. Wooden shipping crates that meet this requirement have an approved stamp known as the “bug stamp” or ISPM 15 mark, certifying they meet international shipping standards.

Protecting You And Your Customers

The heat treatment of wood shipping pallets and crates are important to the safety of your consumers, reducing the need for pesticides and other harmful chemicals. This sterilization process for treating the wood we mill, allows us to make pallets for a variety of industries – with a particular focus on the food and pharmaceutical industries. With this method of wood sterilization, wooden shipping pallets and wooden shipping crates are heated until they reach a minimum core temperature of 56 °C (132.8 °F) for at least 30 minutes.
