EPAL CP pallets meet requirements of the chemicals industry

Many discussions with users in the chemicals industry have been made, now the European Pallet Association (EPAL) has implemented their requirements for EPAL CP pallets and included them in the EPAL Technical Regulations. In addition, the EPAL CP pallets have undergone several intensive practical trials in the Dortmund packaging laboratory of Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML. The test results substantiate the EPAL CP pallets’ optimum functionality for bagged goods and drums and thus conform to the complex requirements of the chemical industry for high-quality wooden load carriers.

Christian Kühnhold, CEO EPAL: “The feedback from users in the chemicals industry on the amended technical requirements was positive in all the talks, and we had a high level of acceptance and support for the EPAL CP pallets. We’re now entering the race with the EPAL CP pallets.”

EPAL CP pallets fully comply with the demand for IPPC – ISPM 15-treated and dried quality pallets, which fulfill the safety requirements of the chemicals industry.
