Radiopaque ProStack pallets from Polymer Solutions International Inc.Radiopaque ProStack pallets from Polymer Solutions International Inc. are ideal for use in food, beverage and pharmaceutical processing applications. Because the pallet is clearly visible in imaging inspections common in cleanroom and processing areas, it's easier to detect product contaminants  when x-ray and fluoroscopy imaging are used as part of the inspection and quality control processes. The pallets are rated for a 30,000 pound static load, or a 5,000 pound dynamic load, are edge rackable to 2,200 pounds, offer four-way fork entry and are made from 100% recyclable, FDA-approved high density polyethylene.  The radiopaque compound does not impair the pallet's recyclability.
