When planning an outdoor seating area, at Discount Seating, we recommend using Topalit brand resin tops in light to mid color range as these don’t absorb heat like darker colors do. They don’t show scratches and marks easily, which means they wear best. You can use light or dark chairs depending if they are out in the open or under cover to protect them. The UV rays can break down the resin over years of exposure.
What is Topalit Table Tops?
Topalit is a manufacturing process, that combines wood, resins and melamine to produce a unique high tech composite. This produces tabletops, building products and other specialty items that must withstand the extremes of moisture, weather and surface abrasion
The core material of these outdoor table tops are designed to resist Immersion in water- even boiling water – wet conditions that would cause ordinary particle board to quickly disintegrate. Also, the table tops are molded with a fused thermo set surface that resists stains, scratches and harsh use.
The table surfaces are Melamine, one of the world’s toughest plastics. Melamine is so scratch resistant that it is used in dinnerware, ashtrays and other products that must stand up to hard use and repeated scrubbing. Melamine is so hard and non-porous that even dried paint can be removed easily. It is resistant to graffiti, cigarette burns, bird droppings and all types of food stains. The surface will not harbor bacteria or mildew. Stubborn stains can be removed with household cleaners and light rubbing with 0000 steel wool.
We recommend that the tops be wiped regularly with a damp cloth and alcohol based solvent or soapy water and a damp cloth. Do not use any abrasive cleaners or detergents. Do not stack tables on top of each other as this may cause scratches. Tops dark in color should not be exposed to direct sunlight at any time.
