Powder-Coated Aluminum Planters
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I order product samples even though I am not ordering a product right now?
When you order PureModern’s free samples*, you can see the color and texture**, and placing the samples in the right lighting will allow you to determine, with confidence, the correct option for you and your client.
*Planter color samples are complimentary. Fire pit swatches require a down payment that is credited upon return.
**Only our Modern Elite Planter and concrete fire pit color samples come in the same product color and texture. Our PurePots color samples come on a heavy plastic that emulates the texture of our fiberglass planters.
What is the difference between marine-grade aluminum and other types of aluminum?
We use a 5052 marine-grade aluminum alloy, which has the following attributes:
- High resistance to corrosion when in constant contact with moisture
Marine-Grade Aluminum Planters That Can Withstand All Weather Conditions.
We use marine-grade aluminum because it is specially alloyed for strength and resistance to corrosion, even when in contact with seawater. For planters that need to withstand the elements, wet environments, or underwater areas, marine-grade aluminum is the choice.
One of our sustainable business practices includes using recycled aluminum, which saves 90-95 percent of the energy needed to extract aluminum from bauxite ore. Also, the powder-coating process produces nearly zero volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be harmful to humans and the environment. Powder-coating gives aluminum an extremely durable finish that extends the life of the planter.
Aluminum planters can be made into any geometric shapes with 90-degree corners (or cylinders with flat bottoms). They can be powder-coated and cured in a range of colors, which you can find in our RAL color book. To learn more about custom planter options using powder-coated aluminum, please click here.
