Maintenance-free and environmentally stable.
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is one of the most commonly used plastics and it is typically found in milk jugs, plastic bags and refillable plastic bottles. HDPE plastic has several properties that make it ideal as a manufacturing product. It’s strong, resists insects, rot and other chemicals. HDPE creates no harmful emissions during its production or during its use by the consumer. Also, HDPE leaks no toxic chemicals into the soil or water.
All our furniture is made from all weather marine grade recycled HDPE. The recycled plastic is melted, treated with a UV protector and coloured so that the colour extends right through the product. Then it is extruded slowly and painstakingly into an extremely high grade all-weather marine grade HDPE that’s 99% UV stable.
This meticulous process ensures that the product is really exceptionally strong without the bubbles or imperfections that can prove to be weak spots in some recycled plastics. The frames are non-porous and resistant to moisture, fading, insects, splinting and warping, so it is essentially a maintenance-free product.
Customers concerned about the environment can feel confident they have made a good decision by purchasing our products. Unlike other types of resin and polymers, HDPE is the most environmentally stable, giving off no harmful fumes.
Our products are designed to hold up to all kinds of adverse weather conditions for decades. And when they are finally ready to be replaced, the materials can be recycled again into new useful products.
Here is how the whole recycling cycle works:
