Aluminum FurniturAluminum Furniture is widely used in the construction of outdoor furniture because it is extremely durable, lightweight, can be formed into many styles and shapes, and will not rust. Your aluminum frames have an electrostatically applied powder-coated paint finish. This process is similar to the one used in the automotive industry. However, if over the course of time, nicks or scratches appear on the painted frame, you can purchase paint at a paint supply store and easily “touch-up” the furniture by following these procedures in Aluminum Furniture Care.

Aluminum Furniture Care

Glossy Finishes:

  1. Clean surface area.
  2. Use fine sand paper to prepare surface area.
  3. Apply a few thin coats of spray paint to sanded area.
  4. Let paint dry and polish with automotive wax.

Textured Finishes:

  1. Clean surface area.
  2. Apply a textured or flat spray paint.
  3. Let paint dry.

To clean the frames, use a mild non-abrasive cleanser. Do not use any cleaners that have citrus agents. Your aluminum frames may come with vinyl straps to support your cushions. These straps can be cleaned by using mild soap and water or a commercial vinyl cleaner. (more…)
