How to Choose an Acrylic Bathtub

Posted by MO LI on

When we are choosing a tub, there are many options available, we need to consider price, durability and style. One of the choices is an acrylic tub, and let us see how to choose an acrylic tub.

1, Check the quality of the bathtub

The acrylic bathtub is made up of a surface layer (acrylic layer) and an inner layer (glass fiber resin reinforcement layer). For those good quality acrylic bathtub, the surface and inner layers are tightly combined, no layering, and there is no hollow sound when tapping lightly. And the surface is as clean as porcelain, flat as a mirror. Looking from the back-lighting view, the surface does not have undulations and warping and with curved arc standard, uniform cylinder thickness, light weight, strong elasticity. Touched by hand, the paste layer inside the cylinder should be smooth and without powder, the joint between the skirt and the cylinder is tight and the gap is consistent. A good acrylic bathtub can maintain a bright appearance for a long time and serves for about 15 years.

2, Check the thickness

The thickness of the acrylic tub is generally 3~10mm. Generally, the thicker the better, pay attention to the smoothness and flatness of the surface and the tiny cracks and defects, and do not buy those bathtubs with orange peel on the surface.

3. Check the shape

Acrylic tubs have many designs. There are acrylic tubs with skirt and without skirt and the shapes are heart, round,oval, rectangle, a triangle etc. We could make a choice based on personal preferences and the bathroom design.
