OUR MANUFACTURING PROCESS

Based in Cape Town, Livingstone baths has a wealth of experience in the luxury bathroom and manufacturing world, ensuring we can supply you with the service excellence and quality products you deserve.

 

Manufacturing Process

Livingstone Baths are manufactured from an engineered composite of resin and stone. It has taken many years to perfect the balance between our manufacturing materials, recipes and processes and we’ve created the quintessential marriage of a gelcoat surface that is backed by high-quality materials.

The manufacturing process consists of gelcoat that is chemically bonded to a specially formulated backing mix. The main component of which is a light-weight, plasticized resin, that took over 6 months to develop, to ensure the impact strength of our products. The resin is combined with Calcium Inosilicate Mineral which gives our product its tensile and flexural strength, as well as Calcium Carbonite Stone powder fillers. This is the stone component of our backing mix which enhances the insulation properties of our products.

Our UV stable, quality gelcoat has been developed in collaboration with a world leader in resin composite manufacturing and our products can be easily pigmented to our customer’s desire and needs. Each bespoke product is individually crafted and hand-polished to a lustrous finish before passing through our stringent quality checks and balances.
