Our process of restoring baths involves applying a new coating onto the old surface while the bath is in place, this new coating is not an enamel finish, as this would be impossible to do in place, any company that suggests they can re-enamel fixtures in place would be misleading, the re-enamelling process would involve removing the bath and sending it away to be re-enamelled using a kiln baking process at 100's of degrees.
•Remove silicon around the edge of the bath.
•Sand and chemically clean the bath. This etches the tub to a matte finish and makes it porous for a quality adhesion.
•Repair the fixture (This is repairing any chips, acid damage caused by bleach and or other corrosives). Then apply caulking in all joints and points of water access.
•Mask off the bathroom. (because the new surface is sprayed on we need to almost mask off the entire room from top to bottom. depending on how your room is decorated depends on how we mask it off, if your bathroom has a lot of painted wood or wallpaper or if the walls have been improperly painted or have water damage we will warn you before we start that there is a small chance that some damage could be caused. We do recommend that if your going to re-decorate your bathroom that you leave this until after the bath fixture has been restored and if there will be any demoing it is best to have us in after)
•A 2 part epoxy resin is applied to the bath. (it is now ready for top coats)
•Apply 3 to 4 Different coats of acrylic urethane (which we use a greener material then most are using and follows strict federal V.O.C. laws. (or until we are satisfied that there is enough coverage)
•The room is sealed off. (to reduce the fumes or smells coming into the house)
•The surface is then left to dry and ready for use the next day (on most fixtures depending on size or job specifics. Some stone accent jobs or fiberglass repair will require a 2nd day)
•Masking is then removed.
