Selection skills of outdoor plastic wood furniture
Outdoor furniture is usually placed in an outdoor space, unavoidably exposed to the sun and rain. Of course, it also tests the quality and craftsmanship of materials more than indoor furniture. The choice of materials is particularly critical for this type of furniture.
Outdoor furniture is mainly made of wood, metal and rattan. Traditionally, the wood used to make outdoor furniture includes pineapple grid, teak, pine, plastic wood, etc. These types of wood have good moisture-proof and anti-cracking properties. Among them, plastic wood materials are the best.
Plastic wood furniture mainly uses plastics (polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), etc.) as raw materials, and is mixed into new wood materials by adding wood flour, rice husk, straw and other waste plant fibers. After extrusion, molding, injection molding and other plastic processing technology, the plate or profile produced. Good strength performance. Wood-plastic composite material contains plastic, so it has a good elastic modulus. In addition, because it contains fiber and is combined with Plastics are fully mixed, so it has the same physical and mechanical properties as hardwoods such as compression and bending resistance, and its durability is significantly better than ordinary wood materials. The surface hardness is high, generally 2-5 times that of wood.
Metal outdoor furniture materials generally include ordinary steel, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, cast iron, cast aluminum, etc. Among them, cast aluminum and stainless steel have the strongest rust resistance.
Metal furniture should have a uniform finish; the joints should be tightly fitted, and the metal welds should be fairly smooth. Make sure that there are no exposed unpainted areas or even rust spots on the metal.
