dc.description.abstractThe plastic pallet industry is suffering major changes due to new developments of new fire codes for pallet storage. These changes are being lead by a group of insurance companies and by the fire marshals. Plastic pallet manufacturers have developed new products that allow these companies to respond to the new needs. These new products triggered the development of new resins. These resins are molded into a pallet to comply with new fire requirements and maintaining the same performance of a regular plastic pallet. Omni Plastics, LLC is one of the resin compounding companies that responded to the challenge. The resultant resin is a high performing fire retarded High Density Polyethylene that will be used by a pallet manufacturer on its Underwriters Laboratory approved product.
