Polywood is a trademarked brand name that has become synonymous with a type of material used in outdoor furniture, representing a category of lumber made from recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastics, like milk jugs, laundry detergent bottles, and water bottles. This type of material is also commonly referred to as "recycled plastic lumber" or "plastic wood," and it has become popular due to its durability and environmental friendliness.

Here are the key characteristics of Polywood material:

  1. Durability: Polywood is resistant to many elements that typically damage traditional wood, including salt spray, oils, corrosive substances, fungi, insects, and other environmental stresses. It does not rot, chip, peel, or splinter, which makes it a popular choice for outdoor and patio furniture.

  2. Low Maintenance: This material does not require the regular treatment or maintenance that traditional wood does. It does not need to be stained, painted, or sealed because the color is typically manufactured through the entire piece of lumber, rather than just on the surface. To clean Polywood, a simple wipe with soapy water is usually sufficient.

  3. Weather Resistant: Whether it's in extreme temperatures, sun, snow, or rain, Polywood holds up well in various climates. It is designed not to absorb moisture, which helps to prevent the growth of mold and mildew. This resistance to weathering also means that it will not crack or fade easily, keeping its look for a longer time without the need for refinishing.

  4. Eco-Friendly: Being made from recycled plastics, Polywood reduces the waste going to landfills and the need for virgin materials. By repurposing these plastics, the manufacturing process for Polywood furniture also reduces the plastic pollution footprint.

  5. Aesthetic: Polywood material can be designed to mimic the look and grain of traditional wood, giving customers the traditional appearance of wood without the associated maintenance. It's available in a variety of colors and finishes that can suit different design preferences.

  6. Heavier Weight: Due to its dense composition, Polywood furniture can be heavier than some wooden alternatives. This can be beneficial in windy areas, where lighter furniture might tip or blow away.

  7. Cost: Initial cost for Polywood furniture can be higher than traditional wooden or cheap plastic furniture due to the quality and durability of the material. However, this cost is often offset over time by its longevity and minimal maintenance needs.
