Certified On-Site Wood Pallet Heat Treating
As of September 2005, all exported wood products to other countries need to be complaint with the IPPC international standard 1SPM 15 to regulate wood and wood packaging in international trade. Kusalava will lead the industry in providing this service right in our own facility. Our guarantee of this certification of compliance is essential to ensure cross border and international flow of goods for our customers. Kusalava is certified in heat treating wood containers.
Why use heat-treated wooden pallets?
Heat-treated pallets comply with standards. In March 2002, the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), an international treaty relating to plant health, passed a measure requiring that all solid wood packaging (including both hardwoods and softwoods) be heat-treated or fumigated before they can be imported into any of the member countries that are part of the convention. That changes everything in the pallet business.
ISPM 15 Treatment Requirements
Kusalava International Ltd is certified for ISPM 15
The IPPC edict, known as ISPM 15, gives wood packaging manufacturers the option of heat treatment, requiring that the wood core temperature reaches a minimim of 56 degrees Centigrade (132.8 F), for 30 minutes, or that the wood be fumigated to a prescribed specification with methyl bromide. All ISPM 15 complaint wood is then stamped with an approved mark signifying that it meets the ISPM 15 standards.
Heat Treatment or Chemical Bath. Which is best?
Why Kusalava International Ltd promotes heat-treated pallets?
We think that heat-treatment is the only safe method for two reasons. First, we are all aware that the chemical methyl bromide is being phased out of use due to its toxicity and its alleged effects of contributing to the Ozone level depletion problem.
Secondly, Kusalava believes that the use of this chemical creates the potential for legal liability both for you, the shipper, as well as creating intolerable health risks for our employees and all humans who come in contact duing the loading, shipping, and unloading operations. Heat treatment is safe and effective and has no legal implications.
