What are Plastic Slip Sheets?
Plastic Slip Sheets are the practical, economical and environmentally sound alternative to wooden pallets and fibre slipsheets.
Made primarily of recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE), slip sheets are designed to replace or supplement wooden pallets in transportation and warehouse applications.
How do they work?
Plastic Slip Sheets provide an economical material handling solution for applications that involve push-pull devices. Using this device the flat PE sheet is placed under a unitized load allowing it to be mobilized. The top surface of the sheet has a greater coefficient of friction (COF) that allows for the product to remain motionless. The bottom surface, known as the slip area, has far less COF, allowing for the unitized load to move freely.

Advantages of Slip Sheets
Who uses JMP Slip Sheets?
Many companies across the world are saving considerable amounts of money by using slipsheets. By converting suppliers from shipping on wooden pallets to shipping on slipsheets some companies are capable of reducing their packaging and transportation costs by over a million dollars annually. Slipsheets cost less than pallets; weigh less, saving transport costs; and are only a fraction the thickness of pallets, thus increasing space and improving the efficiency of truck loading. These companies can then reuse the slipsheets when distributing goods to their own customers.
