The Proven DIY Bath Resurfacing Kit


The Tubby DIY Bath Tub Resurfacing Kit is a durable two-part epoxy-based coating for renovating baths. This proven formula works on worn out, discoloured or badly stained surfaces - saving hundreds of pounds on the cost of replacement or expensive resurfacing treatments.



The Tubby DIY Resurfacing Kit has been developed over many years by the world's leading bath refurbishment company: Mend-A-Bath International Ltd. This company has resurfaced many thousands of baths worldwide - including those of major hotel groups.



Their professional product has been so successful that in the mid 1980's the company decided to respond to the demand for a high quality DIY version of the coating. The result is the Tubby DIY Bath Resurfacing Kit.



It has been stringently tested by the National Standards Authority in the country of its origin for resilience, long term adhesion and safety. It will not crack on contact with very hot water, resists discolouration and is safe to use as it contains no caustic substances.



A Versatile Kit for Many Surfaces


The TUBBY kit can be used on cast iron (enamel) baths, steel, plastic, fibreglass and acrylic baths. It will even cover ceramic and porcelain surfaces which means the entire bathroom suite can be transformed for relatively little expense.

Tubby can be used on bathroom sinks, toilet exteriors and bidets. It can also rejuvenate finely cracked or ugly tiles (one kit will cover 8 square metres coated once). Even washing machines, dryers, fridges and freezers can benefit from a hygienic 'as-new' finish



One Kit - One Bath


The TUBBY DIY Bath Resurfacing Kit contains enough material to coat one large bath tub. The two coat application process means that it will cover four square metres. All utensils to do the job are included in the kit. No other tools are necessary.



How Long Will It Last?


The coating has been developed with durability as its main characteristic. Adhesion tests have been carried out to prove its performance over many years of use. Provided the underlying surface is thoroughly sanded to give a sound, shine-free key, the coating will keep looking good for many, many years.





Simple Step-By-Step Application


N.B. This is just a rough guide to the application process - full, detailed instructions are provided in the kit.



1. The Tubby DIY Bath Resurfacing Kit will cover even the most badly stained baths. Any chips should be filled first using an epoxy based filler (e.g. car body filler). There is cleaning powder in the kit which should be mixed with a little water. Using the sponge provided, give the bath a thorough cleaning to remove all traces of grease, oils and dirt.



2. The most important part of the resurfacing process is to sand the bath surface completely to remove the shine. This procedure

must be carried out thoroughly to ensure maximum adhesion of the Tubby coating. Waterproof abrasive paper is included in the kit and is very effective in removing the shine from most baths. It is not necessary to sand down to the bare metal. This stage of the job is probably the most lengthy, but effort here will pay off in the long term.



3. The kit contains masking tape to cover over the waste outlet and plug surround. You must sand thoroughly up to these areas. When sanding has been completed, the bath must be washed down again and dried thoroughly.

The small tin of hardener is then added to the larger tin of coating and stirred. After it has been left to settle, so the air bubbles gradually disappear, the coating can be applied. There is a brush in the kit for the awkward areas around the plug and overflow. The rest of the coating is applied using a moltoprene roller which is attached to the roller handle provided.



4. Two coats must be applied. The first should be adequate to cover the surface (not too thickly applied) to ensure there is plenty left for the second coat, which is applied approximately one hour later. The material is easy to spread with the roller and must not be 'over worked' as it begins to dry. The coating will settle to a smooth, shiny finish.



5. The bath must be left to dry thoroughly for 48 hours. It is now ready for use.
