When it comes to choosing a bathtub that is right for your needs there are a number of factors to consider, including size, shape, color, design and of course, material.
Two of the most popular materials for contemporary bathtubs are acrylic and fiberglass. Although these materials look similar, they are manufactured differently and each one has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Acrylic bathtubs are formed by heating and molding sheets of acrylic, which are then reinforced with fiberglass.
Fiberglass bathtubs, also called FRP, are produced by spraying a polyester resin, or gelcoat onto a mold.
Acrylic bathtubs are extremely durable, easy to clean and don't scratch easily, However, they are significantly more expensive.
Fiberglass bathtubs are among the most affordable tubs, however, the finish is less resistant to scratching and tends to fade in colour over time.
