Pallets purchased must follow this sequence after purchase
- If you want a polished finish, you should do a brushing of the wood or machine sanding with a coarse grade sandpaper.
- Fine sandpaper: Revise with a sander or hand sand edges or splinters if any.
- If it is to be varnished, apply a wood sealer first. The pores are clogged and also the wood does not absorb so much varnish. Idem if it is going to be lacquered
- If you are going to paint with synthetic paint, a white sealer and primer is convenient to give you a better finish and take better advantage of the paint.
- If it is to be impregnated, after the fungicidal treatment, use the impregnator with or without color. The impregnator is absorbed by the wood and has no surface layer. It is used for a rustic finish, which in turn protects the wood.
Previously Used Pallet
- Avoid pallets with red or orange marks. those have been used to transport dangerous substances.
- Apply a fungicide-bactericide. Normally well-loaded product brush is used. Let dry at least 24 hours or as indicated by the purchased product. This eliminates fungi and bacteria impregnated in the pallet. This step is essential and essential.
- Inspect the pallet for chips, nails or protruding metal elements. Those are the ones that break the tools, apart from being dangerous. Remove them, either removing them or burying them in the same wood with a hammer.
- Remove dust if any
- Follow the same treatment as described for a new pallet.
