Polypropylene is resistant to stress corrosion. It may sound crazy that corrosion can also occur in plastics but it is true. This results in cracking, especially in areas where mechanical stress occurs in combination with a chemical attack. PP is a plastic that has very low susceptibility to this.
A white polypropylene surface may be more sensitive to stains than a black one. Polypropylene is quite a soft material and thus sensitive to scratches.
Galvanization is the most durable method for protecting metal from rusting. The metal is immersed in a zinc bath which results in a protective layer. If the layer gets damaged, the metal under it will start rusting. However any damage can be touched up with zinc paint available from any DIY store. Galvanized steel has a very long life span and is perfectly recyclable if necessary.
'We call it the George Clooney of coating techniques: its looks improve better with age... Our tools with galvanized surfaces are masters of camouflaging dirt, thanks to the materials rough texture. At first, galvanized pieces look very shiny, but they will gradually turn matt under the influence of sun and rain. Rain may also cause dark stains underneath the connection zones.
Structured powder coated zinced steel
Powder coating is a technique of applying dry paint to a part. The powdered paint is electrostatically charged and sprayed onto the object. The object is then placed in an oven and the powder particles melt and coalesce to form a continuous film.
'Choose white powder coating, only when you are willing to clean the surface regularly. There is nothing uglier than a dirty piece of design furniture, right?
Sunbrella® is an acrylic fabric that is still known as the best outdoor fabric available for making cushions. The raw material is Sunbrella® solution-dyed acrylic fibre. The colour pigments are locked right into the very heart of the fibres during the initial stage of the manufacturing process, before the yarn is even made Sunbrella® colours stand up to tough weather conditions and years of sun exposure.
Our Sunbrella cushions and blankets are machine washable at low temperatures. A white and a coloured cushion can both get dirty, but the white one will look dirtier sooner. Do not tumble dry.
