Do You Know How POLYWOOD® All-Weather Furniture Is Made?

The short answer: lots and lots of milk jugs.

Raw materials for POLYWOOD® lumber are mostly derived from post-consumer bottle waste, such as milk and detergent bottles or other post-industrial material. This material is cleaned by a decontamination process to a high purity level, which removes contaminants such as food residue, paper and adhesives. It is then compounded into a rigid board stock material resulting in an eco-friendly, made-in-USA product ideally suited for outdoor furnishings. POLYWOOD® is not painted – the bold colors are embedded right in the material, and it contains UV-inhibited pigment systems that reduces fading.

 

POLYWOOD® lumber requires no waterproofing, painting, staining or similar maintenance when used in outdoor applications.

The weight of a POLYWOOD® chair is similar to that of a hardwood chair averaging 30 to 50 Lbs. each. This means that even in strong winds you won’t have to worry about these bad boys blowing away. For regular maintenance simply wash the product with soap and water.
