Our Furniture Materials
When end consumers consider buying patio & outdoor furniture, the furniture’s material will likely come up as a consideration. After all, end consumers look for value and longevity for their outdoor furniture. Nobody wants to replace their furniture too soon.
Luckily, manufacturers use many materials to make outdoor furniture, from metals to plastic and classic wood. However, end consumers need to pick a suitable material based on many factors.
Outdoor furniture must endure sun exposure, rain, and other environmental factors. Therefore, picking the right materials is very important. One way to secure a good investment is by selecting a trustworthy manufacturer to supply you with high-quality outdoor furniture.
What is HDPE Outdoor Poly Furniture Material Made From?
HDPE outdoor poly furniture material is made from high–density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic lumber. This type of plastic lumber is made from recycled milk jugs, detergent bottles, and other post–consumer plastics. It is a durable and environmentally friendly material that can be used to make outdoor furniture for patios, decks, and other outdoor spaces.
What is HDPE?
High–density polyethylene (HDPE) is a type of thermoplastic polymer that has a high strength–to–density ratio. It is lightweight yet strong and resistant to corrosion, making it an ideal material for outdoor furniture. HDPE also has excellent weather resistance and UV protection properties, making it an ideal choice for patio furniture that will be exposed to the elements.
Colors of HDPE Material
HDPE outdoor poly furniture material comes in a variety of colors including white, black, gray, brown, green, blue, yellow, orange, red and more. The color runs all the way through the material so it won’t fade or chip over time. The colors are also UV stabilized so they won’t fade in direct sunlight.
How Much of the Poly Plastic Lumber is Recycled?
The majority of the HDPE plastic lumber used to make outdoor poly furniture is recycled from post–consumer sources such as milk jugs and detergent bottles. This helps reduce waste in landfills while providing an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional wood patio furniture materials. Our HDPE lumber is 99% recycled.
Recycling Process for the HDPE Lumber
The recycling process for HDPE plastic lumber begins with sorting and cleaning the post–consumer plastics before they are melted down into pellets or chips. These pellets or chips are then heated until they become molten liquid which can be molded into any shape desired for outdoor furniture pieces such as chairs, tables, benches and more. Once cooled down these pieces are ready to be assembled into complete patio sets or individual pieces of furniture depending on what you need for your space.
