Materials

The bases of porcelain bathtubs are usually made from steel, but tile or glass can also be used for to construct the base. The base is coated with a porcelain enamel. The porcelain surface is very durable, smooth, and scratch resistant. Porcelain is white but it can be dyed any color.

Advantages

The lightweight character of the tub has a major advantage. Cast iron bathtubs are considerably heavy. Consequently, this requires floor reinforcement. This is particularly the case for bathroom on the second or third level of a house. At the same time, they are more durable than their acrylic counterparts. They maintain their glossy sheen and color for a much longer time. The porcelain coat resists discoloring and staining. Their lightweight character, durability, and affordability combine to make them the most popular bathtubs on the market.

Cleaning Tips

One other advantage of porcelain is that it is easy to clean. Acrylic surfaces are sometimes quite difficult to clean. Porcelain surfaces, however, can be easily cleaned with warm water and a mild detergent or baking soda powder. One thing to keep in mind is that you should not use scouring powder. Scouring powder may leave tiny scratches in the surface that are not visible. The problem, however, is that dirt, scum, and other debris may build up in the scratched areas overtime. This will make the surface much more difficult to clean. The other thing to avoid is acid-based cleaner. The porcelain with gradually be compromised and this can lead to serious interior damage in the tub. Porcelain can be repaired if it is damaged. If the surface is chipped or injured, it can be refinished. Homeowners can repair minor damage with a repair kit. More serious damage, however, requires a professional. Ask about a warranty when you are shopping for a new tub.
