Restore Faded Stadium Seats In Place With IronHide

Plastic stadium seats at outdoor venues do not fade and oxidize in the traditional way most people think. 


There is no chalky residue that comes off on your hand when you wipe the surface like old car paint used to back in the day. Plastic seats bleach out, meaning the substrate is still structurally intact, but the colour has been baked out due to UV exposure.


Once the colour is gone, no amount of buffing, compounding, sanding and flame heating is going to bring it back.


Ok, so the colour is gone, just repaint them! Not so fast. Plastic stadium seats are primarily made of Polyethylene (PPE) or Polypropylene (PPO). These are classified as “Low Energy Surfaces”. They are slick to the touch and non-porous. Nothing will absorb and nothing sticks to it, including paint! It will simply dry on the surface to eventually be blasted away by someone on a mission with a 3000 psi pressure washer. 


What makes these plastics so attractive though is their long-term durability and the ability to clean quickly. Fading and replacement was just an accepted part of the equation. 


No company has ever been able to solve the coating adhesion issue until now.


At IronHide Seating Solutions, our proprietary colour coatings for plastic are formulated to specifically adhere to stadium seats. They are UV resistant, as well as flexible to expand and contract in all climate conditions. This doubles the expected lifespan of your seats cosmetically.
