What Kind Of Existence PE Rattan Is for Outdoor Furniture?

At the beginning of this article, let’s first think about a question: what material is our common outdoor furniture made of? At this moment, the first material that pops up in your mind maybe the Real Rattan. If so, don’t rush to confirm it, just take a closer look and touch it. It is undeniable that real natural rattan is a material for making outdoor furniture, but PE rattan is more commonly used now.

To make a simple analogy, PE rattan to outdoor furniture is almost equivalent to the protective effect of environmentally friendly plastic raincoats on people, without fear of wind and rain. Real rattan is to outdoor furniture just like primitive straw hats and straw rain capes are to people. Although the straw hats and rain capes can protect against wind and rain to a certain extent, they are easily corroded by rain and damaged by strong winds.In this way, the resistance of real rattan to all kinds of outdoor weather is dwarfed.

Next, let’s discuss in detail why outdoor furniture made of PE rattan can last longer.

Why Does PE Rattan Outdoor Furniture Last Longer?

Natural rattan has inherently unique and wonderful qualities and it had ever played an important role in the classic outdoor furniture. But weatherproofing is definitely not one of them.

It doesn’t have a weather-resistance factor, hence it’s not an ideal outdoor choice. In contrast, PE rattan furniture is made of sustainable and recyclable materials, so they have the following characteristics:

  • Tough and strong
  • Light weight
  • Weatherproof
  • UV resistant, won’t fade or crack in sunlight
  • Anti-swelling
  • Resistant torot or mold
  • Low maintenance difficulty and cost

The best PE rattan is made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) for its durability and resistance to sun-fading. So if you are an outdoor furniture manufacturer and want to make high-quality and durable outdoor furniture, then you should look for and purchase PE rattan made of HDPE. And if you’re a consumer, when you buy plastic patio furniture, you can look for the HDPE symbol on the furniture – a triangle made of arrows with the number 2 in the middle. If you’re particularly concerned about durability, avoid cheap PVC furniture. High-quality PE rattan furniture can be used for 5 to 7 years.

How to maintain PE rattan outdoor furniture ?

PE rattan is tough and durable, and if you take extra care of your synthetic rattan furniture, it will last a long time.

Keep it covered when not in use

One way is to buy a protective cover. Garden furniture covers are the simplest and effective way to do it.

Look for a waterproof and UV-resistant polyethylene (PE) cover. It can protect your garden patio furniture from the harshest weather conditions (or a wired bird or two!).

Keep it indoor if possible

Alternatively, it can be stored indoors.

PE rattan or wicker garden furniture is completely weatherproof and can be placed outside year-round. But it is still recommended that you store it indoors during winter. This is basically because freezing temperatures could make the cord less flexible and may cause it to snap or crack.

Even if the furniture is left outside in the winter or the raining time in summer, you should still keep the cushions indoors.

Keep it always clean and dry

You can start by dusting and brushing to remove the dirt and dust that has settled on the surface. Make sure the cushions have been removed before doing this.

It’s a good idea to vacuum the rattan and wicker garden furniture when necessary, or at least every few months or so.

To dry the furniture, use a clean towel to blot up excess moisture, then let it drip and air dry. Leave it in a dry area with good air circulation for at least 24 hours.

Do not place the cushion back on the seat until it is completely dry. Once the cushions are in place, your rattan garden furniture is ready to use!
