Cast iron: A bathtub fashioned from cast iron is one of the most durable and long lasting fixtures to have in the home or yacht. However its weight combined with water, will normally require reinforcement. Acrylic: A plastic material with a high-gloss look, acrylic gives a similar finish to enamelled cast iron while weighing much less. This material is great for whirlpools and air tubs. Repairs are much easier and cheaper than those to a porcelain surface. Steel enamel: Steel baths can be manufactured to form sharper and flatter lines than those of an acrylic bath as the steel is pressed rather than vacuum formed.
