How PolyWood Furniture is Made
In ending the search for patio sets made from recycled materials, you also help with ending the accumulation of one of the greatest landfill problems ever, the high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastics. The abundance of this particular type of waste, also known as plastic# 2, stems from the fact that HDPEs are used for making milk and detergent jugs and a host of home and gardening plastic items.
Based on their original purpose and use, HDPE plastics are basically sturdy to withstand any load. As usable plastic products, they have the capacity to bar any moisture or any elements that can cause the material to rot or become distressed. When recycled as poly lumber, the HDPE plastics go through cleaning, shredding, grinding and melting processes. In the last stage they are mixed with UV stabilizing agents and color pigments. The treated and colored plastic melts will then be molded into standard lumber forms.
Thereafter, PolyWood lumber will be handcrafted to create well designed outdoor pieces of furniture that can withstand all types of weather and the elements. Come rain, sun, sleet or snow and whether acidic or salty water, your PolyWood patio furniture will remain unaffected for a number of years to come. Even the hardware materials used to assemble the lumber pieces together are marine grade. This totally eliminates the possibility of corrosion or a weakening of the furniture.
These eco-friendly furniture collections may be considered as a bit pricey, but they are worth investing in as outdoor home furnishings. PolyWood manufacturers guarantee 100% customer satisfaction, that their products will last a lifetime as maintenance-free outdoor furniture that is highly-resistant to color fading as well as odor and chemical leaching. PolyWood furniture offers the most befitting solution when trying to find a sustainable, environmentally-friendly patio furniture option.
