The name ‘cast stone’ is taken from the manufacturing process, where the material is cast in a mold. It is a composite of polyester resin, processed quartz, and calcium carbonate, with an added layer of acrylic polyester enamel. Aquatica uses high-quality REICHHOLD and ASHLAND polyester, and decorative enamel. 12-20mm of cast stone ensures the strength and durability of the product. EcoMarmor is solid, heavy and durable.

Acrylic is a specialized polymer material for bathtub manufacturing. In manufacturing, Aquatica uses 4mm and 5mm thick LUCITE(GB), a sanitary-grade acrylic. The quality of the material provides a hygienic, high-gloss and long-lasting finish. LUCITE SW acrylic material will not lose its shine, even after years of everyday use and cleaning. An added layer of fiberglass ensures the strength and durability of the bath. Aquatica acrylic baths have triple reinforcements:

  • 3-4mm thick fiberglass
  • Additional base reinforcement
  • ThermoMate layer (optional)
The metal base in Aquatica acrylic baths will not lose its shape or buckle under the human weight. It can also withstand high temperatures.
