A clawfoot tub is a luxurious and stylish addition to any bathroom, but over time it can become dull and stained. Fortunately, there is a cost-effective solution to restore your clawfoot tub to its former glory: refinishing.

If the bathroom does not need repair, but the appearance of the bathtub ruins everything, it is not necessary to dismantle it. The top coating is updatable and the result is as good as that of a brand new one.

Liquid acrylic adheres reliably to products made of enamelled metal, artificial stone, and acrylic. Hence, the coating is securely held, eliminating the appearance of delamination.

The thick, but docile texture of the material is distributed in a fairly dense, but not too thick layer and completely hides defects and damage that ruined the appearance of the product.

Reglazing of a clawfoot bathtub using pour-on application is effective against stains, rough areas on the surface, yellowing, cracks, chips, delaminations and even deep holes on the surface.

All this gives way to a pleasant uniform whiteness, tactile smoothness, glossy shine and flawless even relief. Such a surface instantly changes the perception of the space around it and visually refreshes the entire room.
