Steel Pallet – Some AnswersPosted: October 30, 2018
This is the only metal pallet designed for rivet fixings (no welding). Rivets hold passenger aircraft together for the service life (up to 30 years). They do not “pop”.
Spot welding is an alternative but not on galvanised metal.
A pre-galvanised finish is superior, the best value. Scratches are “self healing”.
The pallet can be painted on the bearers in ownership colour and name.
Other steel pallets require power wire brushing or blasting and anti rust red oxide or similar treatment underneath a final coat. Inadequate treatment is hidden, not so good.
This system allows for robotic assembly and fixing for mass production.
We do not want this do we…it was electro-galvanised.
It looks perfect at first, but not for long.
