Kiln drying (KD)

Many industries, such as food, pharmaceutical, paper, etc. require pallets that are kiln dried, in order to preserve quality of products that are transported on them by preventing migration of moisture from timber to the product as well as by preventing timber from being affected by fungi and mould. To meet this demand, we offer pallets, pallet tops and kits as well as pallet timber kiln dried to MC=18%.

Heat treatment (HT) according to ISPM 15

International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM 15) were developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and addresses the need to treat wood materials, used to ship products between countries. Its main purpose is to prevent the international transport and spread of disease and insects that could negatively affect plants or ecosystems.

ISPM 15, 2009 (in English) can be found here:

More information about the ISPM 15 and countries that have adopted ISPM 15 can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISPM_15

MAISTORM sources pallets that are heat treated according to ISPM 15 from certified and reliable suppliers, so you do not have to worry about the legitimacy of the HT claim on the pallet!
