What are the benefits of acrylic for your bathtub and shower?

Acrylic is both a popular modern material and one of the oldest plastic materials in use today. First formulated way back in 1865, acrylic has been widely used commercially since 1930 when first applied in periscope ports on submarines and windshields, gun turrets, and canopies on planes during World War II. Acrylic is aversatile polymer and can be colored, drilled, cut, fabricated, and molded. It is ideal for any application to withstand harsh weather, sunlight, and water-related environments like the roofing material, shipping and vehicle parts, outdoor lighting and furniture, pipes, sinks, and bathtubs.

How do you maintain and clean a Bath Fitter tub or shower?

Bath Fitter bathtubs, showers, and seamless walls are easy to clean and maintain. Made from acrylic, a non-porous and robust material, it is resistant to mold and mildew and, with minimal upkeep, will not stain or tarnish over time like fiberglass or glazed tubs and showers would. Acrylic does not easily scratch, and you can buff out deep scrapes. Plus, there is no grout to wash and, therefore, no worry about bacteria, germs, and staining.
