What is Heat Treatment?

Heat treatment is the process of heating the wood until it reaches a minimum core temperature of 56 °C (132.8 °F) for at least 30 minutes.

Why use Heat Treatment?

The core purpose of the heating treatment is to eliminate pesky, unwanted insects that have made a home out of the wood which has been a haven, and a vehicle for a number of invading species. The heat treatment is Eco-friendly and the most effective method to safeguard wooden pallets from insects.The good thing is the heat treatment eliminates pests, other insecticides, and some of the moisture but it doesn’t take away the durability and strength of the pallet.
