It’s the process by which bathtubs are refreshed to their original state by repairing of damaged parts like cracks or chips using putty and then prepping these repaired areas with acid etching which provides with adhesion.
Application of adhesion-promoting bonding agents like silanes on the surface before coating increases the forces of attraction and this ends up blocking any cracks or chips also another method of refinishing bathtub surfaces.
Bathtub refinishing aims to restoring that state the tube was, making it possible to clean and making it look new and it starts with thorough cleaning to remove minerals deposited, body oils on the surface and cracks or chips repairing and then the fine-finish spray is applied on the surface to increase durability of the coating.
Bathtub refinishing is very important both to the house owner and the bathroom condition as it’s a more cost effective way of bringing the shine back of bathtubs, showers, countertops that are worn out, dull or that are extremely hard to clean and refinishing bathtubs instead of replacing them gives enables that brand new look at a fraction of the original cost of replacement.
Replacing of bathtubs involves more work than refinishing as it alters with plumbing of the washroom , sometimes involve tearing of some parts of the walls and floor when fitting the new tub than refinishing which only deals with the tube alone.
Bathtub refinishing saves time more than replacing it which can take more than even a week as it includes the time to rip out the old tub, installing another one, cleaning up stuffs used in installing it or maybe replacing tiles and some sections of the wall rather than just refinishing it which might only cause maximum of eight hours.
Bathtub refinishing has an advantage to the householder as he/she can choose which color to be applied on the tub after refinishing without necessarily paying for the service as it’s incorporated in the whole refinishing process.
Refinishing of bathtub can increase its life and make It more useful to the household for many years saving replacing.
Bathtubs refinishing will reduce the amount of energy used in making of new tubs and ceramics, minimize mining and excavation of minerals used in making of ceramics which destroys land formula and also will minimize gases produced from there ceramic industries as there will be no need of making other tubs but only bettering the ones we have hence there wont be no more green house effect due to gases produced in the atmosphere during manufacture of other tubes.
