We can update the look of your bathtub by restoring its enamel
This process is : Smell free Allergy free Dust free
In case your bathtub original enamel is not damaged but is rusty, stained, discoloured, scratched, chipped, then we can do a Bathtub Restoration. This includes treatment of original factory bathtub enamel with acids, a nano cleaner, then usage of a liquid ceramic nano product. It enhances the original enamel of the bathtub, and adds additional gloss. It has the following advantages: never yellows, can gently change caulking without damage to the finish. It is better than to do the bathtub refinishing as it will last longer, there is no smell and you can use a bathtub within 24 hours after application. Also, it is more affordable than bathtub refinishing.
Bathtub refinishing also known as bathtub resurfacing, bathtub reglazing or bathtub re-enameling is the process of refreshing the surface of a worn, damaged bathtub to a like-new condition. This process typically involves repairing any damaged areas. Chips or cracks are repaired using Bondo or another type of polyester putty. After repairs are made the surface is prepped with an acid etching. Etching provides mechanical adhesion.
Porcelain, enamel, and fiberglass tubs are non-porous and do not provide a good substrate for the new coating to attach to. Etching the surface provides a porous surface that will allow proper adhesion. Another possible method is to apply an adhesion-promoting bonding agent like silane to the surface before applying the coating. The two methods can be used in unison or independently.
The greatest adhesion is achieved by using both methods together. Some new refinishing processes do not require the use of etching, by relying on silane alone. After preparing the surface, a primer is applied, followed by a top coat. Generally, a catalyzed two-component cross-link synthetic white coating is applied, but the coating does not have the durability or abrasive tolerance of the original glass-enamel coating of a factory-new bathtub.
