Bathtub Material

For 35 years and over 450,000 bathtubs sold, we have proven to have a time tested product.


We have two types of bathtubs available: 

1) AcraStone™


Bathtubs made with this proprietary process are the strongest bathtubs in the world. Its high level of impact resistance makes it perfect for daily use. We are confident you will love our AcraStone that we back it with a limited lifetime warranty. Our process makes for a sturdy tub without excessive flex.   We put in twice the labor required compared to a conventional bathtub. See product comparison below.

 

2) Cast Iron


Cast iron is the oldest method of manufacturing a bathtub. For die hard traditionalist we offer this product line. Cast iron is extremely heavy, cold to the touch, prone to chipping of the porcelain coating. When shopping for a cast iron bathtub, be sure to consider our beautiful detailed large ball and claw foot.   See product comparison below.


8 Reasons Why AcraStone™ Bathtubs are Superior

1) AcraStone™ Quality 

 Our AcraStone is the only material durable enough to carry our exclusive Limited Lifetime warranty. You can count on your American Bath Factory bathtub to be beautiful, strong and dependable for years to come. AcraStone is thick, strong, and warm to the touch. The color is chip and wear resistant with a porcelain-like surface inside and out. No other bathtub in the industry, including our own cast iron bathtubs can beat AcraStone's features.

2) Double Acrylic Shell

AcraStone bathtubs are layered with thick acrylic on the inside surface, then with an ABS Backing, an AcraStone stone/resin compound, another layer of ABS Backing and another thick acrylic layer on the outside surface. Our exclusive process creates a strong and high quality clawfoot tub with a beautiful shine inside and out.

 

3) Thick Acrylic Surface

Our clawfoot tubs are 1/2" thick or thicker, depending on the style of the bathtub. The high gloss surface material is 1/4" thick and can be buffed over and over again to repair scratches, or simply to restore it's beautiful shine.

 

4) Stronger but lighter than Cast Iron

Our bathtubs are lighter, stronger, and more durable than a cast iron bathtub. A cast iron bathtub requires more floor support, more labor to install, and is more expensive to transport.

 

5) Better Heat Retention

AcraStone bathtubs have a natural warmth and smooth feel. The thickness of our bathtubs combine to preserve heat retention longer than a cast iron bathtubs
