|In response to Re: Steam Unit in a Cultured Marble Shower?|
From your experience they are not very compatible. Cultured Marble is resin based, with a very thin top coat. There are many manufacturers out there and they all may not create an equal product. I know of a company "The Marble Works" in Greenwood Delaware. You may want to give them a call, nice folks and would probably not mind giving you some advice even though your product probably did not come from there. Folks in lower slower Delaware are usually a very friendly lot.
: But now - After less than a dozen uses, I think the high temperature has damaged the cultured marble. The marble is dished in where the head is mounted (like it shrank) and a crack has formed below it. I noticed the crack (almost 1/16" wide) while using the steam unit in the shower. After I shut it off and everything cooled back down the crack was a barely visible hairline. Later, a BIG crack spread completely across the wall, through the steam head area.
: How heat resistant is cultured marble? Anyone else ever put a steam head in cultured marble? The steam head obviously gets up to about 212 F. Thanks,
