Notes on Colors
We have tried our very best to accurately represent product colors on this website. However, due to the nature of the recycled plastic we use and electronic media, color of actual products may differ slightly from how they appear on this website on your particular computer. Please request a sample to see actual product color. Call or email us with a good ship-to address and your requested sample will be sent to you free of charge or submit a Color Sample Request.
What kind of material is Loll made out of?
Loll products are made with recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) primarily from milk jugs (#2 plastics) that you take out to the curb every week. Milk jugs are used due to their lack of pigment so Loll’s vibrant colors can be created. As Loll material is a post-consumer recycled material, the medium to create the material does inevitably fluctuate. Although we do continuously strive for the best consistency possible, material color and texture may slightly vary from sheet to sheet and thus product to product.
Is there ultraviolet (UV) stability in Loll material?
Yes. Loll products are manufactured with a highly weatherable HDPE sheet. Our post consumer resin includes a superior UV additive designed for plastics that improves exterior durability, greatly reducing characteristic surface degradation caused by sunlight and other UV light sources. Pigments / color concentrates are also added that are formulated with the best weathering pigments available in the market in a particular color-space.
Is fading covered under warranty?
No. The sun is very hard on materials that have constant direct exposure and we cannot guarantee the material color will not change over time. However, the HDPE that Loll uses has a UV stabilizer and is very resistant to fading. The color is not a finish coat; it is a pigment embedded in the material throughout. Some pieces use Richlite natural paper composite. Richlite will patina as it weathers and the lighter, natural colored material will redden or turn grayish. Black will remain black for years but with some apparent weathering. You will never have to paint or stain Loll Furniture. Our Warranty.
Will I see any change of color in my product?
The good news is that in most applications probably not. Further, darker colors are naturally much more resistant to change than lighter colors.
