CERTIFIED HEAT-TREATED PALLETS FROM KAMPS

Heat treatment is a form of pest control for wood pallets produced in the United States, and is a requirement if you are exporting products outside of the country.

Using a heat treat chamber, our wood pallets are heated to a core temperature that will ensure the safety and cleanliness of your pallets. Our pallet experts monitor the whole process to ensure the quality of the pallet is not comprised in any way during the process, and that pallets are treated for the optimal time.

Our heat treated pallets are safer to use than chemically treated pallets, and adhere to strictest ISPM 15 standards.

Why heat-treated pallets

Safer For Your Employees

Our process does not include fumigation with methyl bromide. This creates a far safer working environment for everyone that comes in contact with the pallets.

ISPM 15 Certified

Our heat treated pallets are ISPM 15 certified (with our unique ID #), inspected annually, and adhere to the strictest standards available.

Full Transparency

We are completely transparent about our process and make physical tours of our chambers and certification documents available upon request.

IPPC Requirements

WOOD CORE TEMPERATURE MUST BE AT 132.8° FAHRENHEIT FOR 30 MINUTES

OR

WOOD PALLETS MUST BE FUMIGATED WITH METHYL BROMIDE

INTERNATIONAL REQUIREMENTS

For businesses that plan on shipping to countries that are a part of the United Nations, you want to make sure you have a trustworthy, certified source for heat-treated pallets.

A treaty from the International Phytosanitary Protection Convention (IPPC) requires that all solid wood packaging (i.e. pallets) must be heat-treated or fumigated before being imported into any member country. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in various actions taken against your business and / or products.

At Kamps, we pride ourselves on being able to give your company a peace of mind when exporting with certified documentation and a process worthy of your business.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you know if a pallet has been heat treated?

The heat treated pallet should have the IPPC stamp if it has been properly heat treated

Do heat treated pallets expire?

If the pallet has been properly heat treated, and no new wood components have been used, it will never expire. However, as soon as wood components are repaired or replaced, the pallet is no longer considered certified. 

Does heat treated wood rot?

Heat treating to the IPPC Standards kills larvae and seals wood against larvae infestation that increase the risks of rotting, but there are still chances the wood can rot.
