Material specification and characteristics
- Materials for furniture frame: Powder-coated aluminum or stainless steel. The aluminum has well density, is non-toxic, has high thermal conductivity, has excellent corrosion resistance, and can be easily cast, machined, and formed. It is also non-magnetic and non-sparking. It is the second most malleable metal and the sixth most ductile, because of these special characteristics, It is an excellent material for outdoor furniture; as well as the stainless steel, especially 304 stainless steel, It is the name of a family of iron-based alloys known for their corrosion and heat resistance. One of the main characteristics of stainless steel is its minimum chromium content of 10.5%, which gives it superior resistance to corrosion in comparison to other types of steel. Of course, which manufacturing cost is much higher than aluminum.
- Material for surface treatment. In order to provide a better protective layer on the aluminum frame, adding a powder coating treatment on the aluminum surface, such it can be excellent to protect the aluminum and avoid corrosion, making the furniture durable. How does powder coating treatment on the aluminum surface? The first step to prepare a surface for powder coating is to wash away surface soils. Clean, reverse osmosis or deionized water should be used to remove dirt, dust, grime, and grease from the substrate. For tougher soils, you can use a pressure cleaner to remove them mechanically. The next step is to put the aluminum parts into a special power coating oven, which is exposed to a temperature range of 350 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (160 to 210 degrees Celsius) for 20 minutes, to complete the finishing procedure. In order to perfect the treatment, we prefer to choose Tiger brand (full name: TIGER Drylac U.S.A., Inc) of powder coatings as our high-quality furniture supplier. Of course, we can offer another brand of powder coatings as an option.
