Process

Old Process: Caulking is completely removed and the surface is scraped to remove the bulk of soap film build up. The surface is cleaned then etched using hydrofluoric acid so the coating will bond properly. Hydrofluoric Acid is extremely dangerous and can burn the technician, as well as damage fixtures. Chips and deep scratches are repaired. The substrate is masked off and everything in the bathroom is covered. Two coats of epoxy primer are applied, followed by three coats of finish. This method works, but is proven to not be the best for long term adhesion of the coating. Areas where water sits like around the drain or in corners of the tub will eventually fail.


Our Process: Caulking is completely removed around the surface. The surface is scraped to remove the bulk of soap film build up. Using a safe NON HYDROFLOURIC ACID cleaner the surface is deep cleaned, degreased, and dulled. Dulling the finish is not completely necessary with our advanced method of bonding technology. But leaving this surface profile will give the coating something extra to grab on too, and if the finish is ever chipped it will be less likely to peel due to water getting underneath. Chips and deep scratches are repaired. The substrate is masked off and everything in the bathroom is covered. Our proprietary bonding agent formula is then applied. Three coats of finish (Aliphatic Acrylic Urethane) is applied and chemically fused to the surface for a permanent bond.
