Bathtub refinishing process
Below is a step-by-step description of the professional bathtub refinishing process.
The processes of ceramic tile or countertop refinishing are very similar.
Step by step guide:
1.Clean the bathtub and remove old silicone and caulking.
2.Etch the bathtub with etching gel for deep cleaning and glossy layer removal.
3.All chipped, scratched or worn areas must be filled and sanded smooth. Also it is very important to make sure there is no water dripping on the tub from the shower downspout or shower head.
4.Mask around the bathtub and cover areas not to be refinished.
5.Spray two coats of primer over the bathtub. We use Integrity Coating two parts heavy duty Ultra Primer designed especially for bathtub refinishing purpose.
6.Than we spray three coats of synthetic porcelain. That is very important what the chemical is being used. The Integrity Coating High gloss acrylic polymer is very durable and looks and feels like natural porcelain.
7.After cleaning and caulking, we have turned that old and ugly bathtub into looking a brand new one with a minimal cost to you!
