Flooring and Carpeting/ Acrylic bathtub



I have acrylic bathtub cracks Walter see the eyes when you focus happens because of the diversion of water and for the treatment of a friend advised me to use epoxy Is this true and do all kinds of epoxy suitable for it
with thanks

Sorry I am slow with my reply Asa...very busy at work lately.

Ok...your question seems to have some mixed up words but I think your question is about having a crack in your acrylic bathtub and can you use an epoxy to do a repair. Here in the States we have workmen who do this kind of repair and while I have not watched them do it they do you a form of epoxy to bridge the crack on the tub and make the repair. Usually a seamless repair that you can't hardly see. So my answer is yes at least about using an epoxy to make a repair. Once it dries it is not affected by water or any chemicals at all. Ok Asa...I hope this helps you with your problem feel free to return anytime..
