Restoring Peeling Glaze on Bathtub

Restoring Bathtub

Restoring peeling glaze on bathtubs with liquid acrylic is the creation of a new a snow-white layer of coating, which will make an old tub indistinguishable from a brand new one.

Cast iron bathtubs have an almost infinite margin of durability. They are thick-walled, are stable, are strong, last for decades, while perfectly being functional.

Cast iron tubs absorb the sound and maintain the temperature of water. Knowing the durability of this metal, many do not want to get rid of old bathtubs, but are looking for ways to update and repair it.

Factory enamel, which is applied to the surface of cast-iron bathtubs, is the only weak point of the product. Hard, but very brittle, it is very susceptible to damage from normal household impacts.

Minor impacts and temperature differences quickly crack enamel. A stronger mechanical impact can lead to chipping or detachment.

Therefore, most bathtubs that serve residents for a long time have very worn out appearance with a lot of damage.

In addition, rust and pollution quickly and deeply penetrate into the porous structure of the enamel; salt deposits make the surface rough. Such a tub can taint both the interior and the whole appearance of the bathroom.

Should you install a new one? That will cause you much trouble and is expensive. Also the work involved may even result in the need to repair the entire bathroom.

How to restore tub enamel?

Liquid Acrylic Bathtub

It does not matter how severe the damage to the enamel of the tub is, or how much its surface is worn out. Liquid acrylic easily handles both visible defects, such as non-uniformity and discoloration, roughness, scratches, cracks, as well as deep damages resulting from incautious usage, strong impacts and other influences. Using the pouring method, deep cracks, material detachment and even rusty and tainted areas are eliminated from the surface of the bathtub.

To restore the enamel of the bathtub, the repairperson follows a well defined procedure, making sure that all stages are done correctly:

  1. The first and most important of these is a thorough and high-quality cleaning of the old surface. With the help of sandpaper, the damaged layer of the enamel is completely removed, detachments and cracks are polished, and particularly deep holes are cleaned to a metallic gloss.

  2. After that, all dust, chips and fragments of the removed coating are removed from the surface; the tub is then washed, heated with hot water and dried thoroughly.

    Next, the technician needs to qualitatively treat the entire bath with a degreaser and an antiseptic – this is a necessary condition for the new coating to reliably adhere to the surface of the bathtub.

  3. In cases where the restored bathtub has serious defects, they are pre-treated with special putty, which fills the existing holes and gives additional strength.

  5. After thoroughly mixing the components of the material, the repairperson can begin to apply the liquid acrylic. It is poured onto the surface of the bath uniformly, in a thin stream around the entire perimeter. The material perfectly self-levels as the work is still going on; the resulting surface is smooth and uniform, without air bubbles, sagging and other visual defects. Its ability to be used in coating a bathtub without the use of tools allows you to avoid the appearance of unnecessary relief and the ingress of small litter and fibers on the surface.


Liquid acrylic creates a flawless, smooth bathtub surface that will last for years. The tub, of which its enamel has been restored using acrylic, is not subject to yellowing, does not lose its whiteness from constant contact with tap water, and does not become rough to touch, preventing the deposition of limescale.
