Cladding the bathtub.

When casing needs to be curved


Besides their versatile scope of application BOTAMENT® BP Building Boards’  main advantage is that they make it possible to create curved and other shapes. No other building material can master this feat in such record time!

The BOTAMENT® BP Building Board can be scored anywhere on the board which then makes it pliable to mould into shape. Flexible boards are also available with which curves can be created right away, making it possible to clad totally spherical or quarter-round bathtubs. This way any kind of customer requirement becomes child’s play for the professional bathroom fitter.
