12 Stage Process

Step 1
The exterior of the bath and feet are stripped to bare metal to remove the existing paint and any rust deposits.

Step 2
A metal primer is applied to the exterior surface of the bath and feet.

Step 3
The interior of the bath is etched providing a key for the primer in the original vitreous enamel.

Step 4
Imperfections in the baths’ surface are repaired and any modifications, such as the relocation of tap holes, are carried out.

Step 5
An epoxy primer is applied and then left to cure for 48 hours.

Step 6
The primer finish is prepared for the special mid coat.

Step 7
The mid coat is applied and then left to cure for 48 hours.

Step 8
The mid coat is prepared in readiness for the topcoat.

Step 9
The polyurethane-based enamel topcoat is applied and left to cure for a further 48 hours.

Step 10
The enamel is now hand sanded and mechanically polished to give a smooth and high glossed finish.

Step 11
The exterior of the bath can then be completed with another coat of metal primer and, if required, two coats of a colour of your choice. (with 24 hours between coats). We recommend Dulux Satin Wood or Farrow& Ball & Little Green (Traditional Oil Eggshell)

The bath is now waxed and wrapped in readiness for delivery, or for you to collect.
