Teak is said to be a perfect material for outdoor furniture. This tropical hardwood that is native to the Far East is extremely strong and durable. However, most important of all is that it is naturally resistant to outdoor elements. Which includes rain, UV light, rapid temperature changes, wood eating insects, etc. On the other hand, if left outdoors year round without any protection, teak garden furniture remains unaffected. This is in relation to its beauty and durability, depending on which teak grade it is made of.
Also, teak wood is available in three different quality grades. Which plays the key role in outdoor performance and durability of the furniture. Therefore, it is highly important to know what the difference is between teak grades and how to distinguish between them.
Grade A Teak
Grade A teak is the highest quality teak wood. Hence, it refers to timber taken from the center of the log (heartwood) of a fully mature tree. In addition, grade A teak can be easily recognized by a golden brown color, close grains and glossy surface. Therefore, it is high in teak natural oils which play the key role in the teak’s outstanding resistance to outdoor elements. As a result the teak wood is protected from unfavorable weather elements and repelling insects. However, it only makes up about a fifth to one quarter of the log. Which results in its high price.
Polypropylene, also known as polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications. It is produced via chain-growth polymerization from the monomer propylene.
Polypropylene belongs to the group of polyolefins and is partially crystalline and non-polar. Its properties are similar to polyethylene, but it is slightly harder and more heat resistant. It is a white, mechanically rugged material, and has a high chemical resistance. Polypropylene is the second-most widely produced commodity plastic (after polyethylene). In 2013, the global market for polypropylene was about 55 million tonnes.
