THE PROCESS


Generally the process of refinishing a porcelain bathtub involves the following:

  • Preparation of the Work Area We take great care to ensure that any surrounding areas are protected and that paint-type odours from the refinishing process are properly exhausted.

  • Preparation of the Surface Special-T® uses a two-step cleaning process to adequately prepare the surface for refinishing. These are industrial strength cleaners designed to remove soap film, body oils, and hard water deposits.

  • Next, any chips or scratches are filled and repaired. Once the surface is again cleaned, a thin coat of Special-T®'s proprietary bonding agent is applied. This bonding agent forms a molecular bond which "welds together" the old surface and the new coating.
