What is the best shell material to use in hot tubs?
Acrylic.all of our hot tubs and most of our smaller spas feature acrylic manufactured by either lucite or aristech,two of the biggest manufacturers in the world. Acrylic hot tub shells retain their glossy appearance even after years of normal day to day usage. The surface is hard, none porous, easy to clean and less susceptible to mildew and algae. Acrylic is colour fast so will not fade even in sunlight. It is also chemical and stain resistant. It is also warm to the touch, which makes it more comfortable for use in a hot tub. Acrylic is also easy to repair because the colour goes all the way through and most scratches can be buffed out. It also absorbs impacts that damage other materials.
