Default Are plastic coated cages safe?

With all the toxic materials for birds out there it's hard to know if something is safe or not. So I wanted to ask if plastic coated cages safe for budgies. Thanks.

Many years ago I had a plastic coated cage for one of my budgie pairs and from my experience with it, the plastic wasn't durable.
The budgies would occasionally chew on the bars and eventually the wiring was exposed. All in all, it wasn't a good buy.
