But in terms of relative ceramic and enamel, acrylic material has disadvantage of which is easily residual stains, noiser when water inject, high temperature resistant, wear-resisting, poor ability of surface aging, but the quality of imported acrylic bathtub relatively better.
2. Cast iron bathtub is long-service life, high quality, easy to clean. Due to its thick cylinder wall, cast iron bathtub is good in heat preservation, as well as its glossiness. Which owns the longest service life of the three kinds of bathtub.

3. Steel bathtub is made of a certain thickness of the steel plate of which surface plates enamel. Which has the advantages such as impatient dirty ,easy to clean, not easy fade, lasting sheen, easily forming, and cost cheap. But because of the steel plate is thin, so it’s not strong enough, noisy, easy to take off the porcelain surface, heat preservation performance is not good, so some added insulation layer.
