    Polishing (Bath Buffing)


    If you have a cast iron bath, a specialist procedure called re-polishing can be done on site to restore the enamel to its original colour and bring back its shine. Re-polishing is normally considered if the enamel is still intact but is rough, stained or has lime scale.


    Damage to cast iron baths is often caused by using abrasive cleaning products which can remove the enamel's shine and cause the enamel to become streaked, rough and porous. The enamel will eventually attract dirt, look grey and become very difficult to keep clean.


    Having leaky taps or a leaky shower head will cause water to sit on the enamel which will create a lime scale deposit and eventually corrode the surface. These unsightly marks can be removed and correct care instructions will be provided.


    We can also restore small chips as well as polish plastic baths back to their former glory.


    Say goodbye to unsightly baths and sore bottoms!

    The 9 Steps of Re-surfacing a Bath


    Step One

    If required we remove all the old external paint and grind off any casting imperfections and fill any cast holes or scars.

    Step Two

    We then paint the exterior with an oxide primer, ready for a top coat of your choice.

    Step Three

    We then fill the faults before sanding it down again and thoroughly cleaning it before the next stage which ensures the surface is dust free and we have a good key to the surface which enables a strong adhesion of the prime coat.

    Step Four

    We then give it a light coat of epoxy Primer which enables us to spot even the smallest imperfections which are then filled and sanded down.

    Step Five

    We then paint on a high build epoxy primmer which we allow to cure for between 24-48 hours creating a solid bond with the bath.

    Step Six

    We then sand this down in preparation for the polyurethane mid coat. which is aloud to cure for another 24 hours.

    Step Seven

    We then sand this down in preparation for three coats of polyurethane high gloss top coat. Each coat is aloud to cure for 24 hours.

    Step Eight

    Your bath is then inspected before been allowed to totally cure for 7 days allowing for the fumes to dissipate completely.

    Step Nine

    Your bath is then inspected once more before been wrapped and loaded ready for its return!
