Worldwide Refinishing Systems (Aust) Pty Ltd is an Australian owned
company incorporated in 1990 to bring Worldwide Refinishing Systems
('WRS') resurfacing technology to Australia.
The Classic Surface system was originally developed in the USA
in the late 1960's by the GNU Corporation (later acquired by Worldwide
Refinishing Systems Inc) and first became commercially available
from 1970 onwards.
The key elements in the resurfacing process included a specialised etch process that does not damage plumbing fittings and a 2-stage coating system which bonds an exceptionally hard-wearing top coat to porcelain and vitreous surfaces.
The GNU Corporation's tub resurfacing system was continually improved in the 70's and 80's and became the de facto standard specification adopted by the USA government for use in bathrooms on military bases and other government establishments. The GNU resurfacing system was renamed 'Classic Surface' in the early 90's.
The long history of Classic Surface in the USA, the largest and most advanced resurfacing market in the world, is your assurance of the quality and durability of the system in the hands of authorised applicators.
Since 1990, WRS has trained and appointed independent bathroom
resurfacing applicators throughout Australia. This has led to the
establishment of a national network dedicated to providing residential
and commercial clients with quality resurfacing at competitive prices.
The pedigree of the resurfacing system is important to success of any bathroom resurfacing project, but just as important are the skills and experience of the applicators. Many applicators in the WRS network have between 10 and 15 years experience with Worldwide Refinishing Systems and enjoy a well-earned reputation for quality resurfacing and excellent service.
Worldwide Refinishing Systems (Aust) Pty Ltd periodically offers
expert training to aspiring bathroom resurfacers. The comprehensive
nature of this training is further assurance for customers considering
the Classic Surface system for their bathroom renovation.
Through its involvement in training and setting of standards, Worldwide
Refinishing Systems (Aust) Pty Ltd ensures consistently high standards
of service and workmanship. WRS is based in Sydney from where it
ships the Classic Surface system Australia-wide to authorised independent
