A naturally superior bath: it may sound obvious, but not all baths are created equally. At Victoria + Albert we are passionate about our unique QUARRYCAST® material.
QUARRYCAST® 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 The QUARRYCAST® material 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 QUARRYCAST® 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 unique brassware installation.
Unique Hand finished interior — exterior can be painted or personalised after purchase.
Lasting 25 year consumer guarantee.
Volcanic Limestone ™ is Victoria + Albert’s proprietary name for the very special white rock that is perfect for making baths and 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 QUARRYCAST® – a world class composite with an exceptional strength to weight ratio.
