Victoria + Albert is passionate about this English cast material made from finely ground volcanic limestone mixed with resin. It’s a stone rich alternative to both cast iron and acrylic. The raw material forms needle like particles when super-heated by the volcano, and when mixed with resins, these bond together creating a very strong web. English cast is incredibly strong ensuring there is no cracking or flexing of the bath. They are hand finished, one piece, beautiful tubs and Victoria + Albert products come with a 25 year warranty.
The quality of English cast material give the tubs high insulation properties and stays warm to the touch. The volcanic limestone material has a very glossy finish with excellent stain resistance, is renewable, and internal scratches simply polish out. Hand finished interiors and exteriors can be painted or personalized after purchasing the bath.
