What is the difference between domestic and imported baths?

  • Our baths have a thicker layer of cast iron, and therefore the baths are heavier, and the enamel layer is thinner. In addition, zirconium salt is added to the enamel to increase the service life. However, as practice has shown, the salt is porous, and therefore the enamel can be scratched, and rust can penetrate into the pores.
  • Imported beauties are less weighty, which means that they have a thinner base layer. But the enamel is thicker and stronger. Titanium salts are added to the enamel for strength strength. The finishing process is manual, in order to smooth out another layer of enamel in case of unevenness.

Not so long ago in the world of sanitary ware there was a novelty - a cast iron bath with a varnish coating in three layers. The surface was smoother. Such models reliably occupied their niche, leaving even import ones.
