Duke® Bathtub & Spa acrylic sheet is a class of acrylic that has qualities specifically designed for the manufacturing and performance requirements of sanitaryware.
In order to fit the qualities needed for sanitaryware, the sheet must be crosslinked. Crosslinking is a chemical process by which a plastic is converted from a mixture of long chain molecules to an interlinked network.
In manufacturing, this gives the acrylic “hot strength” so that the acrylic can be stretched out during thermoforming without splitting or blows. This also means a more controlled and even thermoforming process. The acrylic skin of the bathtub or shower tray has a more even distribution and is less prone to thin spots.
