Aluminium


Aluminium alloys, particularly suitable for cold-working and for die-casting, appropriately treated to withstand the elements and powder coated.

Use and Maintenance
To keep the product in good condition for a long time, we recommend cleaning it regularly; more often in very damp locations with a marine climate. It is recommended to clean the surfaces using a soft cloth with water or mild detergents. Prolonged and continuous exposure to intense UV radiation or very low temperatures can affect the initial characteristics of the coloured coating, which is made from polyester. We recommend cleaning and storing the products in sheltered places during prolonged periods of non-use and during the winter.

Eco-Leather


The eco-leather is made of compacted Nylon micro- bre in polyurethane bath. It is then coated with polyurethane of the same colour.

Use and Maintenance
To ensure the long life of the eco-leather, use a mild detergent and soft cloth to clean it. Over time, eco-leather will acquire delicate signs of use that increase its beauty and give it greater depth and allure.

Porcelain Stoneware


Thanks to its excellent physical and mechanical properties, porcelain stoneware is ideal for outdoor use, since it is resistant to atmospheric corrosion and unaffected by UV exposure. Its qualities allow it to be water and oil repellent. Porcelain stoneware is obtained via the synthesizing process of ceramic clay, feldspar, kaolin and sand. These raw materials undergo grinding and atomization until a homogeneous particle size, suitable for pressing, is obtained. Firing takes place at 1150-1250°C for approx. 25-30 minutes in order to determine the ceramization of the mixture, ensuring the typical resistance to abrasion.

Use and Maintenance
he stoneware surfaces can be cleaned easily and do not require particular maintenance interventions. To clean the product we recommend use of a cloth dampened with water and mild detergent. Successively, rinse and dry with a dry cloth. Pay particular attention to the rinsing phase to prevent the accumulation of lime scale and dirt.

Teak


Traditional wood used for outdoor furniture with an exotic and timeless appeal. Teak is a hard wood with a high oil content suitable for outdoor use, without the need for painting. If it does not receive any protective treatment, the surface will weather into a silvery-grey nish, the natural protection of the internal part of the wood, considered an essential part of teak’s charm.

Use and Maintenance
As it is a natural material, changes in colour or cracks due to the level of humidity and sudden changes in temperature may be observed. If it does not receive any maintenance treatment with the periodic application of common and speci c oil-based protective products, the surface will weather into a silvery-grey nish that can be removed with light surface sanding and subsequent polishing with a hessian cloth. Small surface stains caused by oil or other foodstuffs must be removed immediately, before the wood absorbs them, by sanding the area concerned and polishing it with a hessian cloth. When the wood is wet for the rst time, it is normal for the surface to become slightly rough when it dries; the initial polished-effect can be restored with light surface sanding and subsequent polishing with a hessian cloth.

Synthetic Fabrics


Acrylic fabric: a bre whose base element is a polymer chain consisting of 85% acrylonitrile. Acrylic bre combines the aesthetic qualities of a luxurious fabric with the texture and feel of wool with the functional qualities of resistance to the elements: UV resistant, it does not stain and does not rot upon contact with water as it is fast-drying.

Polyester fabric: a bre composed of linear macromolecules consisting mainly of polyethylene terephthalate. It has excellent mechanical properties: it withstands breakage, light and abrasion. It does not deform permanently, it has an excellent elastic recovery and is waterproof.

Polypropylene fabric: these are fibers that are generally very fine, with a high surface tension, thanks to which water can pass through and flow out quickly. Strength and durability are among the main advantages offered by this material, which also provides good thermal insulation.

Use and Maintenance
Avoid prolonged contact with greasy substances and/or dyes, which may be absorbed by the coating material, causing permanent staining and deterioration of the yarn structure. Frequent washing: use water and non-abrasive, colourless liquid detergents with neutral PH. Leave the detergent to react for a few minutes, if required Rinse thoroughly with water at a temperature not exceeding 30°C. If pressurised devices are used, keep the diffuser tip at least 60/70 cm away from the surface of the item. Repeat the operation if necessary.

WPC


WPC is a composite material made from wood fibers and HDPE. Semi-finished products are obtained by extruding the composite. This material is resistant to UV rays, atmospheric agents and humidity. WPC does not chip and is not damaged by bacteria or insects. It is a material that requires little maintenance. It does not need to be painted for protection.

Use and Maintenance
For best care in an outdoor environment, it is recommended that the product be cleaned periodically: – for dust and debris: use a vacuum cleaner to remove dirt and debris; – for dirt stains: clean with a laundry brush using neutral soap and lukewarm water; – for oily stains: pat promptly with absorbent paper and clean the area with lukewarm water and neutral soap. Do not use pressure washing devices, which can damage the product. Do not use bleach or chlorine-based detergents. Do not use highly acidic or highly alkaline detergents. Use neutral detergents, best if diluted in water.
