No other bathtub in the industry, including cast iron bathtubs can beat AcraStone's features.

AcraStone bathtubs are layered with thick acrylic on the inside surface, then with an ABS Backing, an AcraStone stone/resin compound, another layer of ABS Backing and another thick acrylic layer on the outside surface. Our exclusive process creates a strong and high quality clawfoot tub with a beautiful shine inside and out.
3) Thick Acrylic Surface
Clawfoot tubs made with tis material are typically 1/2" thick or thicker, depending on the style. The high gloss surface material is 1/4" thick and can be buffed over and over again to repair scratches, or simply to restore it's beautiful shine.
