Poly Resin Outdoor Furniture: What It Is and Why it's the Best Choice For Your Patio

The time you spend outdoors creates special memories. You love to lounge poolside as the kids play, grill delicious food with friends, and enjoy wine while admiring the sunset. These happy moments will live with you for a long time, so why shouldn't your outdoor furniture do the same? PHAT Tommy's poly outdoor furniture provides an ideal combination of an environmentally-friendly product with aesthetic appeal and durability, perfect for creating outdoor memories.

But what is poly resin furniture? And what makes it superior to its wooden and metal counterparts? This article will define poly resin furniture and outline its benefits to show you why it's the best choice for your outdoor oasis.


Poly resin furniture, or simply poly furniture, is made from 100% recyclable polyethylene plastic. High-density Polyethylene, or HDPE, is a type of plastic that is durable and weather-resistant. HDPE is what makes up many household containers such as milk jugs and water bottles.

These containers are sorted, washed, and molded into durable planks used to make long-lasting outdoor furniture such as our poly adirondack chairs.

Did you know that the world consumes an estimated 1.3 billion plastic water bottles every day? By purchasing long-lasting outdoor furniture made of recycled materials, you can decrease the amount of plastic waste that enters landfills each year.


When containers made of HDPE are appropriately recycled, they are sorted and sent to our manufacturers. Our manufacturers shred the plastic containers into small pieces. After the pieces are shredded, they are cleaned and sanitized to the highest purity standard. Once clean, they are melted down to create a thick liquid. Next, color and UVI that protects the piece from fading are mixed in.

This liquid is then poured into molds to create lumber-like planks. Once the piece has cooled and hardened, they are sanded and finished. These planks are then used to assemble the various parts of the furniture you see on our website, such as our poly tall adirondack chair set of 2 with removable side table. 


One of the most significant advantages of our poly resin outdoor furniture is its durability. HDPE does not lose its density or strength during the recycling process. This allows us to provide an eco-friendly product while also promising durability.

The planks are also are non-porous, so they can take on any environment without breaking down. Compared to wood or aluminum patio furniture, poly resin is the most resistant to water and the elements.

Not only can it stand up to the rain or snow, but it holds up to the wear and tear of everyday use. Unlike wood, PHAT Tommy's poly resin outdoor furniture is safe from mold and harmful bacteria. It's also safe from various types of pests. This makes it the safest option for families.

Its density makes it impervious to erosion, rusting, and splinting, with no need for messy painting, sanding, and resurfacing. This keeps it maintenance-free and safe throughout the years.
