Back in 1994, Albion’s founders had a mission. The task was to create the ultimate bathtub

After looking at the market it was clear that only two materials were available at the time. Acrylic -which is a soft plastic- became popular in the 1970’s, due to ease of manufacture and low cost. However, acrylic’s properties fell short of what the customer wanted. It’s flexibility was always an issue. People reported a dread of taking a bath, as they felt the tub might break under their weight. People also said that acrylic was easy to scratch and always had a ‘cheap look about it’. These shortcomings still remain today.
Cast Iron has been used for approximately 120 years. It gained a reputation for being the ‘real-thing’. However, cast iron has drawbacks, such as excessive weight, heat loss from the bathing water and a proneness to surface chipping. Homeowners also found that liquid cleaners would ruin the white interior surface.

After two years of development, Albion had it sorted. A new material was created from an amalgam of high technology resin and a special reinforced mineral. Manufactured in their own factory, this material was named Iso-Enamel. This formulation is cast into moulds and allowed to harden. The result is a strong, durable and luxurious construction that gives years of bathing enjoyment. Also, Albion baths will keep your water hotter as the material insulates rather than conducts heat.

To this day, this process is unique and offers benefits that other materials cannot provide. The baths are split into two families: Roll Tops, which have a soft rolled edge, and Bull Nose which are characterised by a continuous surface from inside to outside. The exterior of our Roll Top baths can be customised; choose from a selected paint range, one of the three exclusive burnished metallic finishes. Albion’s materials and processes are unique - so they’re keen not to give the game away. What they can say is that an Albion bath is a multi-layered construction of special resins and stone powders. The surface is a high-gloss, bright white enamel. This is harder than acrylic - and compared to cast iron, our coating is less prone to chipping. An Albion bath is approximately 1/3 the weight of a cast iron bath. This core also insulates your bathing water.
