Advanced AquateX™ Solid Surface is a homogeneous, polymer composite material applied in the manufacture of all new Aquatica stone bathtub models (from 2013). The main components are acrylic, modified polyester resin, and mineral filler (Aluminum Hydroxide).
Key material properties:
The components are mixed together in an automated casting machine – the latest technology from Germany. The material is densified in a vacuum-mixer, which provides for a void-free material with high mechanical properties and long-lasting surface quality.
The casting dispersion is extruded into closed casting molds. After the products have passed preliminary polymerization, the units go through post-curing (in a heated oven). This finalizes the polymerization process, and maximizes the mechanical properties (surface hardness, stiffness, chemical resistance, etc.) of the products.
The production process ends with multi-stage, careful surface finishing to give a beautifully distinct, polished satin look. After finishing the surface, the products are thoroughly tested to assure a high quality finish and standard.
