But don’t start shopping until you have a better idea of what you should be looking for. In this guide, we go over everything you need to know about powder coated aluminum patio furniture.

Why Powder Coated Aluminum Patio Furniture is So Popular

Powder coated aluminum patio furniture starts with cast aluminum pieces that are bent and shaped.

Few materials are as durable, easily moved, and elegant as powder coated aluminum. It outperforms other materials, such as wood or HDPE (high density polyethylene), in terms of strength and being nearly maintenance free. This is due to the way powder coated aluminum outdoor furniture is made. Powder coating is the finishing step. It is applied using an electronic charge that bonds the colored powder to the metal and is then heated to a high temperature. Some manufacturers also apply a clear finish over the top of the powder coating. This methodology ensures that the furniture will keep its good looks for a very long time and in a variety of conditions.

Wrought Iron vs Aluminum

Wrought iron outdoor furniture can rust over time.

Another great feature of powder coated aluminum patio furniture is its ability to stay cooler than other metals. This is especially desirable for pieces next to the pool, which are often left out to bake in the hot sun. Wrought iron can also become rusted when exposed to moisture, if not properly treated.

Powder coated aluminum is also much lighter than wrought iron. If you have ever struggled to move a wrought iron patio set, you can appreciate how easy it is to relocate powder coated aluminum patio furniture.

While wrought iron outdoor furniture often features intricate designs and thus has vintage appeal, cast aluminum patio furniture can also be crafted with plenty of style. Aluminum can be bent and twisted to form a wide variety of shapes and designs.

Will It Degrade Over Time?

At Hauser’s Patio, we are often asked, “Does aluminum outdoor furniture rust?” The answer to that question is no. However, there is a condition called oxidation. This can occur if aluminum is exposed to moisture and isn’t properly treated. That is why we always recommend powder coated aluminum outdoor furniture. The powder coating, especially when imbued with UV resistant chemicals, adds an extra layer of protection no matter the weather. Your powder coated aluminum patio furniture is rustproof and is sure to provide many years of service in your outdoor living space.

Examine the Finish

When shopping for powder coated aluminum patio furniture, pay careful attention to the type of powder coating used. Some finishes are smooth and glossy while others are textured and matte. You may want to inquire if the finish is protected against UV rays and specially formulated to be chip resistant. A top-notch powder coating should also be warrantied for a good period of time. The color should be bright and consistent throughout the piece.

This buyer’s guide to powder coated aluminum patio furniture should get you started thinking about the features, finishes, and styles you would most enjoy in your luxury backyard oasis. Remember that part II of this guide is publishing shortly to further help you make the best choice possible.
