Solid surface basins are the perfect way to improve the style and elegance of your bathroom vanity. These basins are usually finished as a matte white surface and are very difficult to crack or break in the usual bathroom setting.
These types of basins are made from materials usually composed of acrylic, epoxy, or polyester resins making them very strong and durable.
In a bathroom environment, solid surface basins are found as basins, baths, or benchtops. They provide a natural feel but have similar drawbacks which are similar to natural products. For example, the surfaces can be slightly porous making it easy for the surface to absorb oils, make-up, tans etc into the surface. So, although solid surface products are more durable than ceramic basins or acrylic baths, they are higher day-to-day maintenance.
However, one of the biggest advantages of solid surface products is that they can be sanded back to give a brand new finish. All our solid surface basins come with fine-grit sandpaper and it is expected that you will need this over the lifetime of the basin. It does not take long to sand back a basin but even after five or ten years it will appear brand new. If it is scratched or has minor damage it can be repaired with ease by just sanding back the affected area. This is not the case with high gloss products which is why we always recommend a matte finish for this product.
