5. What makes the steel legs resistant to weather?
The manufacturer applies a powder coating process on its steel which coats a bare metal object with electro-statically charged powder and then bakes it at a high temperature. Powder coating is the most durable coloring process on the market and is better than traditional paints. They also add a hammer-tone finish which is a textured powder-coating finish that is more durable and better than smooth powder since it is scratch resistant.

A damp cloth and mild dish soap are all you need to clean the top. For tougher-to-remove dirt, you may use a soft-bristle brush and a mild abrasive such as Soft Scrub®. The label adhesive that comes on the product when you buy it can often be removed with a cooking oil.
Lifetime Plastic Folding Tables Design and Other Information:
Lifetime plastic tables feature a plastic table top and steel folding frame. Both parts, the top and frame, are treated to allow for both indoor and outdoor use. An important design feature to note is on the round tables is a leg feature on the 60-incb and 72-inch round table models. On the 60-inch and 72-inch round plastic tables, Lifetime Products connects a set of two adjacent legs with an extra frame support bar on either side of the table. This bar effectively makes two letter "Hs" in look. This feature is there to help support the table top better than if the legs came straight down only; thus, the H-bar, as it is sometimes referred to as, provides a greater weight capacity on the table top.
