Chip Repairs

Elimination of chipping on the bath
Chip Repairs

Chips in bath is a damage that appears on the surface of the bath due to strong blows or falling of heavy objects on it. As a rule, enamel baths are covered with chips of different sizes and depths, because this material is very fragile. The existing chips and flakes of enamel deepen over time and continue to deteriorate, gradually worsening the appearance of the bath.



Does this mean that the bath is completely ruined? Not at all, it can not only be repaired, but its characteristics can also be improved. Thanks to the technology of restoration of baths with liquid acrylic making it possible. It allows you to eliminate any damage, create a perfectly smooth surface and extend the life of the bath for a long period of time.


What you should not do is try to fill the place of the chip yourself with improvised materials. If the surface is not prepared and treated properly, it will not adhere to any material as it should. As a result, moisture will still leak into the chip cavity and continue to destroy the enamel.

Why Do Chips Need To Be Repaired Immediately?


Removing chips on the acrylic bath before and after

Even if the owner of the apartment does not suffer from perfectionism and chips in the bath do not bother him, they still have to be repaired. It is not only that they make the surface of the bath ugly, but they can also be dangerous. The uneven surface due to chipping is a favorable place for the development of bacteria. Water constantly accumulates in the recess, which is not only the habitat of microorganisms, but also continuously continues the process of corrosion and destruction of the surface.

Intense mechanical impact on the enamel surface causes not only the appearance of chips, but also causes the appearance of a network of tiny cracks that may not be visible to the eye. These cracks make the coating less durable, weaken it, so it will only be a matter of time before further destruction, increased chipping or the appearance of new damage in this area.

Hard enamel, when damaged, often forms a chip with uneven edges. Sometimes the material also begins to peel off, which leads to the appearance of a sharp edge. Such places on the bath can be dangerous, because they can injure the user. Especially if children live in the apartment, or if animals are washed in the bath.

Liquid acrylic is the best material for repairing and preventing chipping, as well as other damages. The most correct option both from the practical point of view and from the point of view of aesthetics is to resurface the entire bath with acrylic, without waiting for it to show serious damage. After this, the product will not only become uniformly white and smooth, but also resistant to all impacts that are dangerous to enamel. Using liquid acrylic for resurfacing baths and repairing chips has a very good adhesion when properly applied and adherence to the technology so it is firmly held on the surface of a cast-iron bath.

Removing Chips With Liquid Acrylic

If the bath has individual chips, they can be repaired point-by-point, however there are several good reasons why you should resort to a complete restoration of the product:

  • Enamel, which has been used for many years, becomes even more fragile, and therefore more prone to the formation of new defects. Repairing existing damage will not protect you from the imminent appearance of new ones.

  • Aged enamel will differ in color from snow-white acrylic, so the result of repair, although it will be reliable and durable, but the aesthetics will not be pleasing.

  • Complete restoration of the bath with liquid acrylic not only creates a perfectly white new surface, but also protects it from possible damage in the future due to the impact resistance and reliability of the material.

  • The cost of restoring the bath with liquid acrylic, including repairing chips and cracks, is possible even with a limited budget, and therefore it makes sense to use this profitable service.

Using liquid acrylic, you can repair chips of any depth and size. To eliminate shallow damage, a standard restoration procedure will be sufficient, which involves removing old enamel from the surface of the bath and covering it with liquid acrylic. If the product is severely damaged during usage and there are serious, deep chips on it, the specialist will have to do serious work in several stages.

First, the specialist will need to remove the old enamel with sandpaper, which has been damaged and retains traces of many years of usage. Places where there are chips are sanded especially carefully, the sharp edges are smoothed out, and the detachments are cleaned down to a metallic shine. After that, all dust should be carefully removed from the surface, preferably with a vacuum cleaner. Then the bath is treated with disinfecting and degreasing solutions. the specialist fills places of particularly deep chipping, with quick-drying putty.

The final stage of repair involves the resurfacing of the bath with prepared liquid acrylic. It’s perfect coupling and ability to level any surface allows you to get a perfect result with any input data.

Thanks to liquid acrylic, you can not only eliminate the existing chips on the bath, but also protect their appearance in the future. It, unlike hard and brittle enamel, has a much more elastic structure, preventing the occurrence of chipping and other damages. Acrylic surface is durable and retains the smoothness, integrity and gloss of the surface for many years of usage.
