Etching Process

Bathtub Refinishing involoves the application of a thin, yet incredibly durable coating to an existing surface. A stabilized & safe etching solution is applied to porcelain or ceramic surfaces similar to the way frosting of glass takes place to maximize the primers ability to permanently bond to the original substrate. In the case of fiberglass, acrylic, or other substrates, the surface is thoroughly treated to maximize the adhesion.

Epoxy Primer

Nicetub & Tile uses a special underwater epoxy adhesive primer that permanently adheres to the substrate using a molecular bonding action. The etch/primer steps are the key to extended service life.

Acrylic Urethane

Used for cosmetic value, our acrylic urethane topcoat provides high gloss, impact & scuff resistance and protection against acids and solvents providing the best choice for long term durability.
Our step-by-step refinishing process, insures the most durable and long lasting finish on the market today.
