The Challenges

In  general, indoor  and outdoor bathtubs  require  materials  with  excellent  durability, particularly against  water,  heat  and  impact.  ASA  materials  known  for  excellent  impact  resistance  and weatherability are widely adopted for bathtubs. Recently, the market demand for high-functionality ASA materials that come with improved material properties is on the rise as they allow for easier incorporation of design elements such as the combination of various colors and effects.

In particular, the material used for the water jet part -- where water gets pumped out -- requires a high level of impact strength and mechanical properties that can withstand the high water pressure, as well as great design freedom.

The Solutions
