The possibilities for customizing your bathroom and, specifically, customizing microcement built-in bathtubs according to your preferences are endless. You can design the unique, cozy, and serene space you have always dreamed of.

However, if you still need more information on the subject and want to discover the key differentiators of this material, don’t hesitate to check out what we consider the 5 reasons to renovate your bathroom with ready-to-use microcement.

There are several differences between a microcement bathtub and one made of traditional materials such as cast iron or acrylic. Below, we will analyze some of these differences point by point and emphasize the advantages that arise from the analysis:  

  • Guaranteed Resistance: Using ready-to-use microcement is associated with high resistance to impacts, scratches, or chemical products compared to acrylic or cast-iron bathtubs. This is achieved by applying a protective surface varnish to the microcement, such as Finish Forte Plus. Additionally, coating bathtubs with microcement clearly prevents the appearance of rust and corrosion when in contact with water, thanks to Cementec’s Water Resistant finish. 
  • Effective Installation: The speed and convenience associated with coating existing structures will save you time, money, and avoid debris. Therefore, if you have an unused bathtub and want to give your bathroom a fresh look, coating the bathtub with microcement is the best option compared to the complexity of choosing cast iron or acrylic bathtubs.
  • Easy Maintenance: Forget about the specific maintenance requirements of other materials. Just make sure not to use strong or corrosive chemicals and abrasive tools for drying your microcement bathtub. Perform regular maintenance and use water or mild products for cleaning.
  • Limitless Personalization: Microcement built-in bathtubs can be customized to adapt to any decorative style and bathroom design. You can choose the size, shape, and color that you prefer. On the other hand, acrylic and cast-iron bathtubs often come in standard sizes and limited shapes, and cannot be customized in terms of color.
