NARA-Lead Poisoning Article Reprint
Each day, children bathe in it, play in it, and are washed carefully in it. Yet according to a special report on April 19, 1995 edition of Good Morning America, porcelain bathtubs are one of the America's most unexpected sources of lead exposure for children by the Centers of Disease Control.
A survey of more than 750 bathtubs and it was found that, overall, 62% of all porcelain tubs tested positive with Lead Check Swabs. Specifically, 77% of the cast iron tubs and 25% of the steel tubs tested positive.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that more than 57 million U.S. homes have dangerously high lead levels.

About Our Material
The material that we use is of the finest quality, and is not a paint or epoxy. This is a permanently bonded coating that is extremely hard, glossy, and durable. It contains glass particles or micro glass and offers tough chemical resistance.
Boston Bathtub Resurfacing rejuvenates and restores virtually all porcelain, fiberglass, tile and sinks to a like-new condition quickly and neatly. Our process results in a finish that is nonporous, highly glossy and one that is more acid, chemical, and stain resistant than your original finish. It is as close to a baked on finish that you can possibly get.
Five Coats = for 5 Stars *****
Our material is sprayed on in five coats, two primer coats and three coats of synthetic porcelain. In comparison to other companies, our product is what truly sets us apart.
