Packaging

The T-HDF Eucafibra Prime is supplied in pallets with specific number of panels according to specific dimension and thickness Pallet is protected with dunnage boards on top and bottom, corner blocked and steel strapped for safe handling.
 

Transportation and Handling

  • Pallets must be hoisted with forklifts or similar equipment, to avoid damaging edges of panels..
  • The floor of the body of the transporting truck must be clean, dry, even and without nails and screws sticking out or with overlapping boards. Gaps, if any , must be sealed. For greater safety, the stacks must be blocked and supported by ropes. The areas of panels under pressure of these ropes or cables should be protected by angle plates or plastic wedges.
  • During the route in a transporting truck with open bodywork, protect the product against rain with waterproof tarpaulin. Grain trucks must have the grain outlet closed to avoid rain during the journey.
  • Avoid panel excess, mainly when there is no mechanized means of unloading (forklifts). When unloading or moving panels, avoid dragging them or subjecting them to any sort of friction.
 

Storage

  • The storage must be done in a covered place, protected from  weather and far from moisture and heat.
  • Panels must be stacked horizontally, on a firm level base raised from the floor by means of suitable wedges. It is advisable that the maximum distance between the wedges be  50 cm.
  • Avoid alternative stacking of panels with great differences in dimensions. The maximum stacking must be 6 meters high.
  • Avoid placing hard objects (metals, concrete, wood) on panels or let them in contact with products which may alter their natural features (grease, oil, cement, etc.).
  • Place a suitable number of wedges, increasing the quantity of panels which are not so thick.  Warning: the wedges must always have the same height, with a length equal to the width of the boards.
  • In hot places it is advisable to place a dunnage board on the stack, both in storage and movement during the processing, to reduce the effect of the heat which affects the surface of the material, so that no moisture is lost on the exposed surface, will cause imbalance that may deform panel.
  • Avoid excessive storage time so as not to cause deformation owing to gain/loss of moisture.
