LUCITE Cast Acrylic Bathtubs

Updated on November 29, 2014

Gorgeous, Efficient LUCITE Cast Acrylic Whirlpool Bathtubs

Do you love the look of a stand alone tub in a large bathroom? Whether your tastes run towards traditional or modern style, these tubs are a key element in any high-end bathroom remodel. You may have thought that if you opt for the free standing look you have to forgo a jetted spa experience and are in for a heavy, cold, cast iron tub.

Think again! Modern, freestanding tubs that are cast from acrylic mimic the look of a porcelain tub with all the advantages of modern technology - including whirlpool jets for a luxurious spa experience!

Buy the gorgeous Olivia Tub above in LUCITE Cast Acrylic by MTI at Modernbathroom.com.

Why opt for an acrylic cast tub over porcelain, stone or cast iron? Here are some of the top reasons.

  • Acrylic or resin tubs are considerably more lightweight than cast iron tubs.
  • Due to their hollow core, an acrylic tub can be fitted with jets for a truly luxurious spa-like experience. Something that can not be done with a stone or cast iron tub.
  • Man-made acrylic tubs maintain heat better than a cold stone or iron tub, allowing your water to stay warmer longer for a more luxurious soaking experience.
  • Many cast acrylic tubs are sustainably made by American companies in America. Two of the top brands, MTI and Americh custom make their tubs to order in Georgia and South Carolina respectively.

For more information about modern, LUCITE cast acrylic tubs, read the info from the MTI website here.
