Q:

What is cast-aluminum patio furniture?

Full Answer

Aluminum casting allows outdoor furniture to be unique in shape, from straight geometric to flowing and form fitting. Cast aluminum furniture is heavy enough to withstand outdoor weather conditions but remains light enough for convenient patio, pool or yard arrangements. In addition to patio furniture, car parts, boat engines, cookware, parts of small household appliances, lawnmowers and hand tools are also manufactured using the cast aluminum method.
