Acrylic is the best new material for manufacturing sanitary ware after ceramics. As a special type of organic glass,Acrylic can also be used for aircraft windshields and has been used in harsh environments for decades.
Compared to traditional ceramic materials, acrylic not only has unparalleled high brightness, but also has the following advantages: good toughness、not easily damaged; It is highly restorative and can be cleaned by dipping soft foam into toothpaste; Soft texture, not in winter having a chilling and piercing sensation; Bright colors can meet the individual pursuits of different tastes. Using acrylic to make a basin, bathtub, and seat toilets are not only exquisitely designed and durable, but also have environmental protection effects. Their radiation line is in line with the radiation range of the human body’s own bones the degrees are almost the same. Acrylic sanitary ware first appeared in the United States and currently accounts for over 70% of the entire international market. In our country Sichuan Dongfang Sanitary Ware Factory was the first to introduce this technology from abroad and applied for a registered patent in China. Now China acrylic sanitary ware are also favored by more and more consumers.
Due to the difficulty and high cost of acrylic production, there are many high-quality, low-cost substitutes in the market. These substitutes are also known as “acrylic”, it actually refers to ordinary organic board or composite board (also known as sandwich board). Ordinary organic board is made of ordinary organic glass it is cast with cracked glass and pigment, with low surface hardness and easy fading. The polishing effect is poor after polishing with fine sand. Composite board only looks at there is a thin layer of acrylic on the surface and ABS plastic in the middle. It is easy to delaminate due to thermal expansion in use. Authentic and fake acrylic,it can be identified from the subtle color difference and polishing effect of the board cross-section.
There are many types of bathtubs, such as cast iron bathtubs, enamel bathtubs, acrylic bathtubs, and so on Among them, enamel bathtubs are compared to acrylic bathtubs. Enamel bathtubs are made of clay fired and have a high aesthetic appearance, but their drawbacks are also obvious. They are bulky and difficult to transport, afraid of bumps. It is very smooth, easy to slip, and collisions and scratches cannot be repaired. Acrylic bathtubs are easy to shape, have good insulation performance, good luster, light weight, convenient installation, and have a variety of shapes and colors. Combining the above characteristics, acrylic bathtubs are relatively inexpensive in cost.
Acrylic bathtubs also have many advantages. Acrylic bathtubs have a slow heat transfer, so they have good insulation effect. Even in cold winter, when skin comes into direct contact with acrylic bathtubs, we will not feel “cold”. So acrylic bathtub is the perfect choice for making luxurious bathtub materials.
Acrylic raw material is a byproduct extracted from deep-sea oil. Using this material to create bathtubs has a much lower raw material cost compared to cast iron and steel bathtubs, and the performance of using acrylic bathtubs is very good, with strong competitiveness in the market.
Acrylic bathtubs have a certain degree of self-healing properties. If there are scratches on the surface of the acrylic bathtub, the bathtub itself will has a certain degree of self-healing function. Moreover, the surface of the acrylic bathtub is smooth and white, making it easy to clean in daily life.
