I've seen this stuff but never tried it: https://www.amazon.com/Rust-Oleum-RRCAL-Multi-Surface-Formula-ReCOLOR/dp/B0195M6C2I/ref=sr_1_2?crid=3RJ33T6IRXQJ2&keywords=rustoleum+restorer&qid=1564408147&s=gateway&sprefix=rustoleum+rest%2Caps%2C241&sr=8-2
I saw it at Dollar General, but you might want to check out the reviews on Amazon before you try it.
You'll most likely need to repaint them.
Try using a spray on wax for cars. Ours was starting to show signs of oxidation and we purchased Turtle Wax "Black" spray on wax. We put on two coats and the furniture looks like new. We'll probably do this treatment a couple times during the summer because the Colorado mountain sun is very harsh. Hope this helps.
Every few seasons, they may just need to be repainted. I have had great luck with the Rustoleum line of spray paints.
I’m still going to recommend that you clean, sand any rust, tape off any upholstery, and spray the metal with Rustoleum 2X, which will bond with the metal and hold up to rain and heat and cold. Just my advice! Jewell
Oxidation by the sun is a never-ending process. You will need to maintain your furniture every so often. If there is no rust, then I love the car wax idea. There are many varieties of wax. Some seal better than others - and require less 'elbow grease'. Read the labels. If rust is present, you will have to remove it, clean the metal and then repaint. Rustoleum has several products that are designed for use outside and are UV resistant.
