Homeowners who seek the classic grace of stone in their bathtubs but don’t want to sacrifice modern durability have new and unique options in freestanding bathtubs. Aquatica offers two stone bathtub lines that combine different degrees of stone/minerals with resins or polymers, allowing for the perfect combination of form and function.
Aquatica AquaStone is a technologically advanced, solid composite material that consists of a high percentage of natural stone minerals combined with a low percentage of acrylic resin. This material has been specially developed for bathtubs and sinks to offer a hypoallergenic, non-toxic, 100% recyclable and durable stone option. Though it features a high percentage of natural stone, it is non-porous and yields a sublimely velvet-like feel.
Aquatica CrystalStone is also a composite material, and consists mostly of mineral fillers bonded to polyester resins and acrylic polymers. The result of this particular combination is a “soft-touch” surface that mimics porcelain’s high-gloss white finish and a natural stone esthetic in a surprisingly lightweight and durable form.
The EcoMarmor™ line of bathtubs is manufactured using pollution-free materials—85% natural marble or granite crumbs and only 15% of inert binding composite materials—which results in the elimination of the presence of any toxic chemicals.
EcoMarmor™ bathtubs made by Aquatica can withstand heavy weight load, do not deform, and are resistant to mechanical stress. The products’ high density, smoothness and lack of porousness ensure that the bathtubs will not crack or deform for at least 25 years, even in spite of intensive use.
