What do Scratches Look Like on Aluminum Chiavari Chairs vs Resin Chiavari Chairs?

We had a potential customer pose a great question last week regarding aluminum Chiavari chairs and how they compare to resin Chiavari chairs in terms of scratching.

Any banquet hall, event venue, hotel or Rental Company, unfortunately, has to deal with scratches as a consequence of using event chairs. Knowing what the scratches will look like on the Chiavari chair you end up going with gives you the ability to plan what to do when scratches do occur.

Here’s how scratches appear on Aluminum Chiavari Chairs:

Aluminum Chiavari Chairs, when scratched, will show the silver metal underneath. If you have Silver Aluminum Chiavari Chairs this won’t make a huge difference as the colours will be similar, however, black, mahogany, gold, and white will all show scratches easily.

Here’s how scratches appear on our Resin Chiavari Chairs:

Our resin Chiavari chairs have a similar colour resin underneath the exterior paint and gloss finish. If a scratch occurs, the scratch will minimally show. I specify our Chiavari chairs, particularly as we know there is other resin Chiavari chairs on the market that have a white resin core with exterior paint in black, gold, silver, or mahogany and a gloss finish. This is to bring the cost of the chair down as white resin is cheaper to produce than a coloured resin that better hides a scratch.

Does food or wine stain plastic folding tables?

We had a potential customer ask us a question regarding our plastic folding tables which we were 98% sure of the answer – but we weren’t 100%. That doesn’t sit well with us so we decided it was time to test it out. The client asked “Does food or wine stain plastic folding tables?” And from the best of our knowledge it isn’t extremely easy to stain the tables (we did leave a folding table outside for almost a year of Canadian weather) but it can definitely occur – particularly with some of the more difficult stains. So I thought I would test this out – determine whether the answer made sense – and if there was a way to fix the stain once it occurred. Check it out below:

1. I mimicked the spill occurring on the table. I chose Red Wine, Ketchup and Coffee for the stains I would put on the table. The reasoning behind those choices: I thought they would be the most common stains/spills that would occur during a special event.

2. I let the table sit 5 days. Here’s what it looked like after 5 days:

3. Then I wiped off the stains to check out the damage.

This picture shows the table after wiping off the coffee. I used water and a paper towel plus my elbow grease.

Here is the table as I’m wiping off the red wine (again with water and paper towel):

And how the “stain” (or lack thereof) looks once complete:

Ketchup

And here is what the ketchup looks like after a cleaning of water and paper towel:

Ketchup was the only substance that slightly stained the table – I’ve circled the stain in the photo because it is so faint that sometimes I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.

Hopefully this test provides you the answer you required regarding whether our plastic folding tables stain!

Does Melamine Serveware Warp in Commercial Dishwashers?

We had an interesting question asked of us that we thought worth answering on our blog. A potential customer asked if our melamine serveware would warp in commercial dishwashers.

For those not familiar with melamine, it is a synthetic resin that is used to form durable, break-resistant dinnerware, serving platters, and serving bowls. Melamine serveware can look almost identical to porcelain or be dyed to look like wood, marble, slate or stone. We specifically choose our melamine serveware to look as close to porcelain as possible – we’ve even had trade show attendees do a double take once they feel it!

Commercial dishwashers are like residential dishwashers on steroids and they often either use sanitation chemicals or higher heat to properly wash dinnerware, serveware, flatware and glassware. It is understandable that a potential customer would have a concern regarding warping in a commercial dishwasher.

Melamine platters or bowls works well in a temperature range of 2°C – 93°C (35.6°F - 200°F). Anywhere below zero degrees melamine platters and bowls will get quite brittle and breakage will more easily occur. A temperature above 200 degrees and warping will more easily occur. Commercial dishwashers work up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit so given Melamine’s wide temperature range you should not have warping issues putting them in your dishwasher.
