packaging. But, having almost done this for my claw foot iron tub I did a little research.
-To do it properly per the instructions, it was a 5-7 day process.
-Surface has to be cleaner than clean-room clean.
-Tons of fumes. Very noxious fumes. Fumes you need a particulate and vapor mask for.
-Temperature and consistency of the mix is very important.
-The "if you screw it up" options are not plentiful or things you want to do.
-Surface has to be cleaner than satellite assembly room clean.
-I stopped reading at that point, I only have one bathroom.
Online reviews have been mixed.
My folks had their tub redone a couple of years ago by a commercial company. Stunk to high heaven, dusty, and was couple of hundred dollars I think.
The surface is still slippery, unlike my tub and their pre treated tub. Mum has said she's not sure she'd do it again. She has noticed the coating is not as durable as the original, and it does appear to be thin/flaky in spots (up near the molding if I recall).
When I visit I don't notice anything off-hand. Slippage can be an issue (they're both getting up in age, even for me.
That's it. No personal practical experience with either way, but a little more info for your researhing.
