The advantage of the acrylic bathtub and the identification of the true and false

- May 06, 2018 -

Household water is composed of bathtub, toilet, wash face, living water and so on. The toilet uses the largest amount of water. The research data shows that toilet water accounts for 6-7 of the total water consumption, and the toilet in China uses a toilet of 9 to 12 litres, which has caused the crisis of water resources. Thus, "bathroom energy conservation" has become an important way to save household water charges.

Now, we all advocate energy conservation and environmental protection. A survey shows that the water saving toilet of 6 liters or below is liked by consumers. Each business is constantly updating technology, renewing materials, opening up innovation, and the acrylic toilet has come into being.

The acryl toilet first appeared in the UK, a British ICI (formerly the DuPont Co) provided an investigation case: in Manchester, England, there are 2000 acrylic bathtubs installed in a number of homes, which are not private homes, but rental apartments. 15 years later, 20 out of these houses were randomly selected to check the use of acrylic bathtubs. After examination, no serious damage or defect occurred in the bathtub. Two of them had traces of cigarette butt scalding, but only a simple polishing process could easily remove them. In addition, because of the use of strong corrosive cleanser, gloss has been reduced, and after simple polishing treatment, the original gloss has been restored.

Acrylic is also the best new material for making sanitary ware after ceramics. Compared with traditional ceramic materials, acrylic has many advantages besides unparalleled high gloss. A acrylic cleaning brand in the building material market.  Staff introduced that acrylic sanitary ware good toughness, not easy to break, at the same time the repair is very strong, as long as the soft foam dipped in a point toothpaste can wipe clean a new. Moreover, its texture is soft, and there is no cold touch in winter.

Relevant informed staff also remind consumers that because of the difficulty and high cost of acrylic processing, there are many inferior and cheap substitutes in the market. These substitutes, also known as "acrylic", are usually ordinary organic boards or composite panels (also known as sandwich panels). Ordinary organic board is made of common plexiglass cracking material with pigment. The surface hardness is low, and it is easy to fade. The polishing effect is poor after grinding with fine sand. The composite board has only a thin layer of acrylic on the surface and ABS plastic in the middle, which is easy to be delaminated by thermal expansion and cold contraction. True and false acrylic can be identified from the fine color difference and polishing effect of the cross section.
