This product is usually known by the brand name, Formica. It appears to be slightly more scratch resistant than fiberglass. In addition, it does not have the "molded" look of fiberglass, and can also provide many years of use. Plastic laminate tub and shower walls can be installed in one piece, with the corners pre-bent at the factory, or in several pieces. The one piece system is longer lasting. This product must also be installed on a good substrate such as "greenboard" type drywall.
