Bathtub Refinishing explained
To understand what bathtub refinishing is. We need to first understand what bathtub refinishing is not. It is not the process of painting a bathtub. Not the use of Epoxy paint. It is not the use of Acrylic Urethane paint. The only reason the epoxy paint kits sold in home improvement stores are able to say 'Refinishing' is because that word is defined as reapplying a finish to a surface. Even if it is not the correct finish... it still is actually refinishing.
We can look at what the Professional Bathtub Refinishing Association recommends for refinishing and you will see that fluoropolymer coatings which are injected with polyester and silicone resin is the correct coating for the bathtub and tile refinishing professional.
This is the exact coating I use and there is a lot more that goes into it besides the correct coating! Please take a minute and see my main site for an explanation of how bathtub and tile should be refinished and who says they should be refinished this way and why. Also I will describe the exact process I use to refinish bathtubs and tile.
