The most popular type of bathtub found in the United States are porcelain bathtubs. They are low maintenance, affordable and more durable than acrylic bathtubs. The base of a porcelain tub is typically made of steel and then coated with porcelain enamel and heated to very high temperatures. This process creates a smooth, durable surface that is moisture resistant. This surface can be slippery, especially when wet. We recommend using our products and services to help make your porcelain bathtub more slip resistant.
Enamel is a glass-like protective coating that is fused onto ceramic, metal or glass. This coating can be colored or clear and provides a hard, durable surface. Enamel bathtubs typically have a steel base which is then coated with enamel and heated to a very high temperature. Enamel’s smooth surface can be slippery, especially when wet.

Acrylic bathtubs are created when sheets of acrylic are fired at high temperatures, molded, toughened with fiberglass and then reinforced with metal or wood. They are available in a wide variety of shapes, colors and styles. Acrylic bathtubs are lighter than iron or steel bathtubs, but have a high-gloss surface similar to porcelain and enamel bathtubs. This smooth surface can be slippery, especially when wet. We recommend using our product and services to help make your acrylic bathtub more slip resistant.
