There are numerous options for enhancing the beauty of Polywood outdoor furniture. The material can be pre-colored, painted, or stained and the surface can either come smooth or embossed with wood grain. Whatever your style preferences, there is a piece of Polywood outdoor furniture to suit your needs.
Polywood Furniture Design Options Shaping Polywood lumber can be shaped into any design because it can be cut, nailed, and sawed into just like hard woods. Although Polywood outdoor furniture is very scratch resistant, if minor scratches do occur they can be buffed out with fine grain sandpaper without ruining the finish of the furniture. However, complete resurfacing of plastic lumber is not possible with sandpaper. (Not that you’ll ever have a need to resurface this durable material anyway!) Color Applications Typically Polywood lumber is dyed during the production of its main material-high density polyethylene. A UV resistant pigment is added to the plastic, producing a product in which the color is not just on the surface but instead it is consistent throughout each piece. Because the coloring is added during production, most Polywood outdoor furniture comes with color already added. Customization, by manufacturer or by the customer, can be added by either staining or painting the material to suit specific tastes. It is best to purchase your HDEP wood outdoor furniture already in the color you prefer as the material is non-porous and resistant to oils so a layperson may find it hard to find stain or paint that will stick to the surface. Professional staining can create an effect on the Polywood furniture that makes it hard to distinguish from comparable hardwood pieces whereas a painted finish can give a sleeker, more contemporary feel to the furniture. Texture Options There are two texture options available in Polywood backyard and garden furniture pieces: smooth and wood grain textured. A smooth surface area is comfortable and easy to clean. Texture can be added through embossing during the manufacturing process and makes the surface of plastic lumber closely resemble the grain of real wood and can even make the material feel more similar to wood. Top Coats Top coat options for Polywood outdoor furniture are at once aesthetically pleasing and functional. Aesthetic options include a matte finish that goes well with stained pieces and furthers the resemblance to hardwood and glossy finishes that add a little light-catching shine to pieces. The functionality of top coats comes in their ability to further protect outdoor furniture from fading due to UV rays and from general wear and tear from the elements.
