Bathtub refinishing, bathtub resurfacing, bathtub reglazing, and bathtub painting are all terms to describe the applying of a durable new finish coat to an existing tub.
The coating that we use is a 3 part aliphatic acrylic polyurethane that has
– durable finish
– Mold resistant
– Resistance to abrasion and scratching (holds up to normal wear and tear)
– Impact resistance
– Resistance to extreme temperatures
– Color retention (won’t yellow like epoxy coatings)
– Super high Gloss
a. Cleaning a bathtub with our special bathtub restoration ny cleaners makes the surface perfectly clean. If the surface been refinished before we strip old glaze prior to cleaning it.
b. After cleaning, etching is required to make the surface stickier for a top coat.
c. When bathtub is etched, it needs to get dry. We dry the surface with our hot air compressor.
d. Time to fix and fill big chips and cracks. Almost all damages can be fixed to a 100% invisibility.
e. Now we are ready to mask the surface that we don’t want to be sprayed. All except the fixture that needs to be refinished will be covered with the masking paper and plastic cover.
f. Now we are ready for saline bonding agent that helps a primer to stick to the surface better. We wipe the surface saline before priming.
g. After 2 coats of primer is applied to the surface, we have to wait 10 minutes before applying our final top coat.
h. Before a top coat is applied we put a non-skid surface on the base of the bathtub if it is required by a customer.
i. Finally, ready for a top coat. 3 coats of acrylic polyurethane is applied to achieve super gloss and durable finish.
Normally between 3 to 4 hours, depending on the condition of the surface. If the bathtub was refinished before then we will have to strip old paint and it will add an extra hour to the process.
When our technician leaves your place, you can use your fixture in 24 hours.
If proper care is taken and cleaning procedures followed, your newly refinished item will last for 10-15 years.
We do provide 3-5 years of warranty on all our projects!
