Long considered basic, wooden packaging has a number of advantages for professionals: quality, robustness, renewable, locally available, etc. This type of packaging is also popular with consumers for its natural, authentic feel. However, pallets, crates and light or industrial wooden packaging are often affected by blue stains and mould growth. To remedy this, Groupe Berkem has developed AXIL PAL, a specific solution designed to protect wooden packaging.
Manufacturers and users of wooden packaging are sometimes faced with the problem of blue stain and mould. In addition to the aesthetic damage, this damage can also be economic, with the loss of goods rendered unfit for consumption.
These two distinct wood disorders need to be contained to guarantee healthy goods.
To prevent damage to your pallets and wooden packaging and the extra costs involved, the Berkem Groupe has developed AXIL PAL, a preventive protection solution for your pallets and wooden packaging. It is applied to fresh sawn timber, ideally within 48 to 72 hours of felling. Treated in this way, the wood becomes stronger, more attractive and less susceptible to biological attack.
Groupe Berkem has submitted test reports assessed by the relevant European authorities to certify that the AXIL PAL solution can be used to treat wood intended to come into contact with foodstuffs. The experts concluded that all the quality, safety and efficacy criteria were perfectly compliant and without risk to consumers.
No MRLs (Maximum Residue Limits) are expected to be exceeded with this use. No unacceptable risks from dietary exposure have been identified.
The wooden pallet is a product that perfectly represents the concept of the circular economy: repairable, recyclable and reusable. With AXIL PAL, the Groupe Berkem is helping to keep wooden pallets and packaging in good condition to extend their lifespan.
