And did you know that Polywood is made in the United States from 100% recycled materials? Polywood’s lumber is comprised of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), UV-inhibited pigment systems, foaming compounds and selected process additives. The HDPE primary raw material is derived from post-consumer bottle waste, such as milk and detergent bottles or other HDPE 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, with the resulting finished product containing over 90% recycled plastic by weight!

Because HDPE products are made with a single, purified polymer, they are manufactured to exacting, reproducible specifications. They have exceptional resistance to corrosive substances, oil and fuels, insects, fungi, salt spray and other environmental stresses. Impervious to all types of weather conditions, including rain, snow, salt water, sun and ice, HDPE products like Polywood do not absorb moisture and will not rot, splinter, or crack. Furthermore, they require no water proofing, painting, staining, or similar maintenance when used in many exterior applications.

The characteristics of this durable material are both pleasant to the eyes and touch, and Polywood unites this plastic lumber with stainless steel hardware producing long lasting performance furnishings. Our extensive selection of Polywood furniture includes chairs, tables, rockers, garden benches, chaise lounges, ottomans, tete-a-tetes, planters, gliders, porch swings, bar furniture, furniture sets and cushions. With their many color options and styles, we are certain that you will find the outdoor furniture  that creates the outdoor space you desire!
