A naturally superior bathtub: It may sound obvious, but not all bathtubs are created equally. At Victoria + Albert we are passionate about our unique ENGLISHCAST® material.
ENGLISHCAST® is made from finely ground Volcanic Limestone™ mixed with resin. As the stone-rich alternative to both cast iron and acrylic it is 100% one piece, hand finished and packed with naturally desirable properties:
Warm Due to the quality of the ENGLISHCAST® material it has high insulation properties and is warm to the touch
Beautiful The Volcanic Limestone™ mineral delivers a naturally white, gloss finish, featuring excellent stain resistance
Strong This raw material has special needle-like particles formed by the rock undergoing superheating. When mixed with resins these bond together to create an incredibly strong web. As well as being naturally white and naturally harder than acrylic, this makes ENGLISHCAST® incredibly strong and ensures no creaking or flexing of the bath
Renewable Easy clean solid surface – as the material is solid all the way through, internal scratches simply polish out
Practical Drillable for customized faucet location
Unique Hand finished interior – exterior can be painted or personalized after purchase
Lasting 25 year warranty
Volcanic Limestone ™ is Victoria + Albert’s proprietary name for the very special white rock that is perfect for making bathtubs and vessel basins.
This is formed when the elemental forces associated with liquid magma acts upon surrounding soft, chalky limestone. The immense heat and pressure from the magma transforms the neighbouring rock into a new material made up of incredibly hard strands.
Victoria + Albert blends milled Volcanic Limestone™ with high quality resins to bind these strands into a complex 3D matrix.
The finished result is ENGLISHCAST® – a world class composite with an exceptional strength to weight ratio.
