At PureModern, we think about durability in three ways:
Material strength for weather resistance. How well can a planter’s material stand up to everyday wear-and-tear, heat and cold, water exposure, and more?
Aesthetic durability. How many years will a planter continue to look its best?
Maintenance costs over time. Over the planter's lifetime, how much will you spend on maintenance between time and labor?
Powder-coated planters satisfy all three of these requirements and are the epitome of a lifetime product. They withstand the elements and look great over time, all while requiring minimal maintenance and upkeep.
The price point is higher, but you absolutely get what you pay for. Take a look:
- Heavy gauge 5052 marine-grade aluminum is used to ensure optimal durability in all weather conditions.
- We use a bonded powder coat on the marine-grade aluminum with TIGER Drylac® Series 38 architectural-grade powder inside and out to create a durable hard shell on the aluminum planter.
- Our powder coating is free of the VOCs (also known as “volatile organic compounds”) commonly found in building materials. VOCs can sometimes be unstable and emit unhealthy gasses that can negatively impact people and the environment.
- This grade of aluminum is used for ships and airplanes and this type of powder coating is used in military equipment and communication towers.
