|The luxurious Aquatica Purescape tub line, made of sanitary grade acrylic, is setting new standards of convenience and design. Acrylic bathtubs are stamped from very large sheets of acrylic. To help ensure durability, the stamped acrylic is then strengthened with fiberglass backing. Lightweight and low maintenance, acrylic tubs can be repaired very easily should scratches, cracks or dents occur. Never painted onto the surface, the tubs are constructed of colored acrylic sheets making the color fast throughout which eliminates the possibility of color fading over time. The finish of acrylic bathtubs is also protected against damage from most household cleaners and chemicals. However, there are some chemicals that will damage the surface such as acetone, and paint removers or thinners. A simple household cleaner will do the job of removing tough stains from an acrylic bathtub when running water will not do the trick.
