Polywood Outdoor Furniture Eco-Friendly, Low Maintenance, and Long-Lasting
Eco-Friendly Facts Save Trees, Reduce Waste Made of high density polyethylene (HDPE). Polyethylene is made from reclaimed and recycled plastics. Recycling plastic reduces toxic waste and creates renewable sources for materials. No trees are cut down to make Polywood lumber.
Quality Craftsmanship â€˘ Polywood lumber can be cut to any shape allowing for versatility in furniture design. â€˘ Plastic lumber can be embossed to create the appearance and feel of real wood grain.
Dense and Durable HDPE lumber is, by definition, dense and by construction, durable. The material has a high space to weight ratio which means outdoor tables, chairs, swings and other furnishings can withstand typical weight from standard use. Since Polywood is dense it is also heavy and therefore will not blow over on a windy day.
Resists Wear and Tear
Unlike wood, the smooth surface of Polywood plastic lumber will not; warp, crack, or splinter. Because Polywood is so durable it is perfect for outdoor furniture and is often used in playground areas to replace unsafe wooden structures and furniture.
Works Well in any Weather â€˘ Polywood outdoor furniture is impervious to moisture so it will not collect mold or mildew in humid, rainy, or snow prone climates. The UV resistant pigment mixed into the HDPE during production and UV protective top coat are fade resistant.
Polywood Is Pest Resistant Plolywood, being plastic, is not an attractive meal for termites or other insects that destroy wood. Polywood is also harder than wood so rodents and other animals can not chew threw it as easily. Polywood has the look and feel of wood without the vulnerability.
Create Style with Color Color can be added to plastic lumber furniture in four ways: with pigment during manufacturing, by staining, and by adding cushions. Painting and staining is done only by the manufacturers as the non-porous surface of Polywood is resistant to stains, even from typically powerful oil based products.
Cleaning and Care â€˘ For general cleaning use a solution of soap and water to spray chairs, then wipe clean with a cloth and rinse. Use a soft bristle brush to remove debris from crevices. Polywood furniture can be pressure washed with pressure up to 1,500 pounds.
Stain Removal â€˘ While plastic lumber is stain resistant some staining may occur over time, especially on white pieces. To remove stains, use a solution of 1/3 bleach and 2/3 water, spray the furniture, let sit for 15 minutes, then rinse and let dry.
