Methacrylate Monomers: Bathrooms and Spa – Lucite International

 

Bathrooms and Spa

Bathroom floors

Our Asterite® branded acrylic composite product, which is available to customers in our Asia Pacific region, is used to create a range of floorings for bathrooms that are extremely hard-wearing, non-slip, fast drying and easy to keep clean. Floors are available in Granite and Metallic effects and come in a range of colours.

Bathtubs and Whirlpools

Lucite® cast acrylic is used by the world’s major sanitary ware manufacturers to make almost 50% of the world’s acrylic baths. Available in a wide range of colours and effects, Lucite has a luxurious warm feel and is extremely hard wearing. It is resistant to chemicals, UV and abrasion, and easily formed into an array of shapes and styles. Lucite® Liquid Acrylic Resins are used to produce cold curing mixtures that can be cast in simple moulds to create bathtubs, while in the Asia Pacific region Asterite® has a 25-year history of creating composite-based, beautifully smooth, stylish and hardwearing bathtubs.

Backing material

Our Modar® composite material, available in the Asia Pacific region, is a unique modified acrylic liquid resin with excellent bonding properties that cures at ambient temperature. It is ideal for use as a backing reinforcement for acrylic bathtubs and shower trays.

Panels and fittings

The use of Lucite® cast acrylic to create bath panels that complement the tub itself are a natural product extension. The same wide range of colours and effects, luxurious warm touch and hard-wearing qualities combine with easy formability and resistance to chemicals, UV and abrasion to make it an ideal choice for bath manufacturers.

Shower cabin doors

Perfect for use in high performance washroom areas at leisure complexes, gymnasia and spas, shower panels made from our acrylic are extremely practical and hard wearing. Resisting damage from repeat use and constant exposure to chemicals they retain their high quality finish for substantial periods of time.

Shower trays

Lucite International manufacturers a range of resin, sheet and composite branded products, all with high performing characteristics that are suitable for use in the manufacture of shower trays. Our acrylics can be tailored to give a variety of colours and effects in the end product, all of which stand up to the rigours of frequent exposure to water and chemicals.

Spa

Lucite® XL cast acrylic is firmly established as the material of choice for the spa industry, where it has been used since the late 1970s. Our extra large sheet is extremely hard wearing and is available in a range of colours and effects, which manufacturers all over the world use to create spas for use indoors or outside.

Vanity bowls and tops

Lucite® Liquid Acrylic Resins combined with ATH fillers form a casting mix for either continuous or batch processing systems to create vanity basins and tops using a single mould. Short cycle times, ambient cure and low cost moulds along with excellent aesthetics make this a growth opportunity for acrylics. Our branded acrylic composite, Asterite®, is well established in Asia Pacific for use in vanity bowls and tops that are exceptionally smooth and hard wearing. This surface hardness prevents micro scratches and means that the bowls and tops stay clean and retain their beautiful finish for longer.
