The short version - Onyx products are a cross between cultured marble and Corian. These unique ingredients are what make Onyx Collection products very easy to keep clean.
The chemistry - All of the Onyx collection products are made with mostly hydrate crystal - Al2O3+3H2O, alumina, and a unique polyester resin. There is a gel coating on the surface that is highly resistant to water, minimizing the buildup of molds, mildews and other common bathroom bacteria. These unique ingredients are what make Onyx showers very easy to keep clean. Alumina is also the main ingredient in Corian and all "solid surface" products. This chemical marriage makes for a very customizable, durable, and gorgeous product. The Onyx product does have a gelcoat on the surface (about 15 mils) similar to cultured marble. Our Gelcoat is ISO-NPG polymer. ISO-NPG gelcoat is a tight molecule--very resistant to water penetration.
All manufacturers try to get properties which make products work best for their applications. The Onyx Collection product is designed for the bathroom.
Over the last 30 plus years the Onyx Collection has develop a special polyester resin to achieve the product properties to say
"Yes, Guarantee Forever"
The fillers are totally different. Onyx uses a alumina trihydrate (same as corian) filler where as cultured marble uses a calcium carbonate filler (limestone) Cultured marble may yellow over time for various reasons. As for the guarantee, no one compares to Onyx, Guaranteed Forever! The best part about the Onyx Collection products and shower bases, is that they will never leak.
•Onyx Collection products can be cleaned with just about any household cleaner so long as it is not abrasive.
•A common household surface cleaner that we often recommend is just diluted white vinegar.
•A great way to keep your Onyx Collection shower looking great is using a squeegee after taking a shower.
-Thoughts on cleaning problems, probably far more than you really want to know.
Mildew is a parasite fungi needing a little moisture, but mainly something to "eat". Soap (basically a salt of fat acids) is "food" for mildew. The acid in vinegar dissolves soap salt. Water also dissolves soap salts. This is why we do a final, water only, rinse on clothing.
Tip: To break up hard water/soap film deposits on your Onyx products, we recommend a 50/50 white vinegar/water mix solution. Non-abrasive kitchen dish washing soap can also break up these deposits.
White vinegar works great for all three problems. Vinegar is a natural safe product. The acid will dissolve limestone, removes soap scum, and kill mildew. Vinegar can't harm the metal products in your bath. White vinegar also works well on shower doors. They really shine.
Exhaust fans change the air allowing water to evaporate faster. Unfortunately, limestone and soap remain whether water evaporates fast or slow. Eliminating moisture faster may slow the growth of mildew--but not much.
