Different types of bathtub.

Now let us go through the different types of bathtubs based on the materials used in its manufacturing process.


1. Ceramic bathtub.


Ceramic bathtub.

Ceramic is the oldest and most common material used in the manufacturing of different building materials. They are easy to clean without much effort to maintain their shiny surface.


2. Porcelain bathtub.


Porcelain bathtub.

Porcelain is a type of stoneware usually made up of clay, feldspar, and silica. They have a hard and impervious surface which is achieved by vitrification.


3. Acrylic bathtub.


Acrylic bathtub.

Acrylic is a complex composition of fillers, dyes, resins, stabilizers, which react with each other to form the sheets. This polymer material is usually reinforced with synthetic fibers for stability.


4. FRP bathtub.


FRP bathtub.

Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP ) is a polymer plastic with fiberglass ( usually ) as the reinforcement material. They are lightweight, strong, and anti-corrosive materials which makes them create their position in the construction industry.


5. Enameled bathtub.


Enameled bathtub.

The substrate ( outer material ) is made up of different metals and alloys like cast iron, steel, copper, etc. These materials are provided with the inner vitreous coatings which are also called porcelain enamel to have a hard seamless shiny surface.


6. Stainless steel bathtub.


Stainless steel bathtub.

Stainless steel is the most common material used in making the utensils. They have high temperatures and pressure-resistant properties with a robust body. These materials keep their metallic shining with the anti-rust properties.


7. Copper bathtub.


Copper bathtub.

Copper is known to have anti-virus and anti-bacterial properties. But they react with the acids and atmospheric oxygen, gradually forming the oxide coatings. They are usually enameled from the inside as shown in fig.


8. Marble bathtub.


Marble bathtub.

The bathtub is made up of artificially manufactured marble which is also said as cultured marble. They are made by blending the stone particles with the resins and pigments to have the realistic look.


9. Granite bathtub.


Granite bathtub.

A slab of the granite stone is cut into a specific pattern and then carved and polished from inside. They are heavier in a structure which makes them hard to transport. They provide a traditional and royal look to your bathroom.


10. Stone bathtub.


Stone bathtub.

Any hard stone is cut and carved very similar to the granite as said above to manufacture the bathtub of different shapes and sizes. This is the historical type of bathtub and nowadays we find its limited usage in everyday life.


11. Solid surface bathtub.


Solid surface bathtub.

These bathtubs are made by using good quality resins with aluminum powder and pigments. They come with sleek designs and varied colors. They are durable, easy to maintain with the impervious structure.


12. Concrete bathtub.


Concrete bathtub.

RCC bathtubs can be cast in place with the needed dimensions of your choice. You can make different shapes and sizes which fit into your bathroom. Even precast models are also available in the market with good inner finishing.


13. Tiled bathtub.


Tiled bathtub.

This is simply the extension of the RCC or masonry bathtubs. After constructing the bathtubs, they are fixed with the wall tiles both from inside and outside as shown in fig. This is the fixed type of bathtub, where you cannot shift its position.


14. Wooden bathtub.


Wooden bathtub.

This is the traditional type of bathtub where waterproof resin coatings were applied to the wooden surface after carving work, to protect it from the water and the external environment. Usually, a specific type of hardwoods is used to manufacture such types of bathtubs.
