Pine wood pallets are normally made from dried pine wood, carrying a variety of dormant pathogenic fungi, including Pythium sp., Rhizoctonia sp., Sclerotium sp., Fusarium sp. Penicillium, and Aspergillus, Trichoderma, Paecilomyces, and Cylindrocladium sp. lying dormant in pine wood. Proper prevention methods are the only way to ensure that pine pallet funguses and wetness do not have any change to activate the development of these funguses that can cause these dormant funguses to cause destruction, collapsing and discomposure of pallets, causing damage to packaging boxes with fruit etc. in containers for local transport but especially for export.
Dry Tech Aerogels (Pty) Ltd has developed a product (Atom8, PP) that will keep wood dry (hydrophobic) even if it get water on it and in the same coating have organic nano Bio-Fungicides and Bio-Microcidal materials to eliminate any spores to develop on top or inside the wood. This method will protect the wood pallet from collapsing even if it is under wet conditions.
