Polywood Outdoors furniture range is made from post-consumer bottle waste, such as milk and detergent bottles or other HDPE post industrial material so its furniture transforms landfill waste into usable products. In fact it takes about 280 bottles to produce one chair.
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; with the resulting finished product containing over 90% recycled plastic by weight.
Not only is it environmentally friendly, it is exceptionally hardwearing. Due to HDPE products being made with a single, purified polymer, they have very resistant to corrosive substances, oil and fuels, insects, fungi, salt spray, and other environmental stresses. They do not absorb moisture; therefore, they will not rot, splinter, or crack. HDPE products have excellent weathering resistance. These products require no waterproofing, painting, staining, or similar maintenance when used in many exterior applications.
This product has been available in America for over 20 years but Polywood Outdoors is the first company to bring it to the Australian market.
