Ace Refinishers’ top notch technicians reglazed a porcelain tub in Fayetteville that looked pretty rough.
It had been refinished before and the finish was coming
off. The wonderful thing about a well made porcelain tub
like this is that it can be made to look beautiful again. Using
the materials that are most common today that is rarely
possible. To learn more about the bathtub industry materials
used today, check out this piece of an article about bathtubs
Over three million bathtubs, including whirlpool baths and hot tubs, are shipped per year. Plumbing fixtures are classified into three industries according to the materials from which they are made: vitreous, metal, and plastic. In recent years changing consumer tastes have displaced other materials in favor of plastics for bathtubs, whirlpool baths, and lavatory sinks. Sixty-two percent of bathtubs, 92% of whirlpool baths, and 28% of lavatories are made out of plastic. Besides plastic, the standard material for bathtubs is enameled cast iron or steel. Bathtubs must be manufactured according to standards established by the American National Standards Institute.
