MTI Basics Bathtubs

• Constructed in durable Lucite® cross-linked cast acrylic, with a multi-layered backing of fiberglass / resin / titanium. Lucite is extremely scratch- and stain-resistant, yet renewable because the color goes all the way through the material. The surface is non-porous, which makes cleaning and sanitizing easier.
• Rectangular and corner tubs also receive reinforcement of ½" round metal tubing in all sides.
• Standard in white or available in biscuit for an up charge.
• Integrated front skirt and tile flange for alcove installation comes standard on several tub models, and most drop-in tub models may be transformed to accommodate alcove installation when specified with factory-installed installation aids at the time of order.
• Textured bottom is standard on all drop-in tub models and compliant with ASTM C 1025-07 coefficient of friction test.
