Wicker Resin is a remarkable material with unique characteristics and properties that make it perfect for the use as patio furniture. Resin is a man-made product. Only special resins are deemed appropriate for outdoor furniture. In order to make a resin useful for outdoor use, you need to start with the right kind of resin. Then, the resin needs to have ultra violet (UV) light inhibitors mixed into it as it is being made in order to ensure that the suns powerful rays do not degrade the resin. The UV inhibitors help keep the resin strong, flexible and keep the color from fading. Not all resins are equal and some do not perform as you might like when used outdoor. All of the furniture supplied by Wicker Living are made using a high grade resin. Therefore, you can be assured that you are buying quality wicker furniture when you shop at Wicker Living.
The resin itself is a water proof material that is not bothered by moisture or rain. It retains its flexibility and strength through normal outdoor conditions and temperatures. Resin wicker is easy to maintain and requires little or no maintenance. You don't need to apply any coatings or chemical to protect it. Keep your wicker clean by washing it off form time to time with a garden hose and let it dry before using it. Use mild dish soap and a cotton rag or soft bristled brush to remove grime then rinse with clean water.
