How they’re made
Acrylic tubs are made of vacuum formed acrylic sheets that are reinforced with fiberglass. As a result they are light weight and easy to install.
It’s hard to go wrong with an acrylic tub, and if you want something really special (color, size, shape, etc) it’s probably available via special order (which also means pricey).
Unless you have a specific need for cast iron (and please don’t) or stainless steel, you can surely find an acrylic bathtub to suit your needs.
