How to Fix a Chip in a Fiberglass Bathtub

Fiberglass bathtubs are durable, but sometimes get chipped and damaged. Even a small chip in your bathtub can look ugly and feel uncomfortable.

Steps to Fix a Chip in a Fiberglass Bathtub

  • Clean the chipped area: Clean the chipped area with soap and water. Let the area dry.
  • Mask: Mask the area around the chip with plastic tape.
  • Ventilate the area: Open windows to ventilate the bathroom.
  • Prepare the epoxy mixture: Add thickener to the epoxy and stir it.
  • Chip repair: Apply the epoxy mixture to the chipped area with a paintbrush. Allow the epoxy to dry for five hours or more.
  • Smooth the surface: Once the epoxy is dry, smooth the surface with sandpaper.
  • The bathtub is ready for use after 24-hours.
