Uses

Because of its mold and mildew resistance, Veritek is used in applications where water is present. Swanstone products manufactured with Veritek are bathtubs, bath and shower wall combination sets, shower doors, utility sinks and basins. The company's bathtub alcove set is manufactured so the installation appears to be made of one continuous sheet of material.

Colors

Swanstone offers three solid colors as well as three aggregate patterns, which are manufactured to look like granite or other stone. Aggregate patterns are available in Tahiti Sand, Bermuda Sand and Clay Granite. The solid colors are white, bisque and bone.

Warranty

Swan Corporation provides a five-year limited warranty on bathtubs, bath and shower walls, and shower doors. A one-year limited warranty applies to utility sinks and basins manufactured of Veritek.
