Powdercoat Color Options

COLOR OPTIONS
DuMor knows having the right color site furnishing is paramount, that is why we offer a large selection of various high quality powder coat options. Powder coating provides a superior finish for outdoor metal products. DuMor powder coat is an extensive process that involves abrasive blasting all the metal components to free them of any dirt or contaminants along with an 8 stage washing system to clean further. Following the cleaning, all products are coated with a zinc-rich primer which is adhered in a process that involves a powdered primer applied through an electrostatic process and then baked on under high heat. Following the primer, your color of choice is applied like the primer, an electrostatic adhesion and high heat baking that brings the powder to a liquid like state where it adheres to the primer and is additionally allowed to cure for 20 minutes for maximum adhesion. Powder is nontoxic, and environmentally safe, emitting no harmful VOC fumes, all of the waste water is evaporated and excess powder is recycled. Screens and printers can vary, so we encourage anyone interested to contact their DuMor representative about a free paint chip sample right from the DuMor factory. Additionally, if your color of choice isn't in our line up, we offer all RAL powder coat options for a per order additional charge.

Seating Material Options

WOOD SPECIES
DuMor has selected the highest grade woods available for use on our products. "C" & Better Douglas Fir and Ipe are offered as standard wood options. Douglas Fir will be delivered coated in a clear preservative. Due to its density and estimated longevity left uncoated, Ipe will be delivered in its natural state without preservative. Requirements for other wood species not offered are available upon special request and quoted on a per-job basis. 

As a natural product of our environment, wood will weather when placed outdoors. Signs of weathering include splitting, checking, and changing color. These are not covered by DuMor's warranty. Due to variations in natural wood grains, photos shown here may not reflect actual product. Please contact your local DuMor representative for color and wood grain samples.

CHARACTERISTICS OF IPE

As an organic product, the color of Ipe can vary from board to board. Unlike plastic or paint where color matching can be controlled, the color of an Ipe board can be dependent on climate, time of harvest, how it was cut and dried, when it was milled and how long it was stored. Ipe wood  is quite dense, and as such, is extremely resistant to preservative treatment. Left to nature, the UV sun rays and traditional weathering will change the Ipe to an attractive, consistent light gray. Therefore, Ipe leaving the DuMor facility will not be coated with a preservative. During the graying process as Ipe wood ages, it has a tendency to check as moisture leaves the board. Once the board reaches a stable moisture level, the check will close some as the width of the board shrinks. This has been described as a dynamic process of shrinking where checks appear but dramatically lessen with time. Left uncoated to weather, the US Department of Agriculture and Forestry rates Ipe as "Very resistant to attack by decay, fungi and termites." The USFPL (United States Forest Products Lab) classified Ipe as "Very Durable" (their highest rating). Although we recommend allowing IPE wood to undergo the natural weathering process, should you wish to somewhat maintain the orginal color, regular maintenance and preservative are required.
