The material of the shower is not much different from most other main materials. However, among the several common materials, each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Combine the requirements with the showers of different materials, pay attention to its own performance characteristics, in order to extend the shower. The service life. So what is the material of the shower now? Let me introduce you to the 4 common shower materials.
1, stainless steel shower
Stainless steel showers were common a few years ago, but they have been rare in recent years. He has the advantages of wear resistance, no rust, and affordable price. The disadvantage is that the shower style made of stainless steel is relatively simple. There are also many places in the workmanship that are not in place.
2, copper chrome shower
Hollow copper chrome plating (mostly round rods, thick square rods are also): hollow copper shower advantages: more styles, moderate price. Disadvantages: afraid of wear and tear. Regular production generally does not have this problem; but some manufacturers use the tube to look thicker. But in fact, the tube wall is very thin, the use is broken (it is recommended to press hard when pressed, easy to bend ).
Solid copper chrome plating (generally square tube, some in order to prove solid, specially twisted several flowers at both ends of the rod): The advantages of all-copper shower: fine workmanship, thicker plating layer, durable. Disadvantages: the price is high, the style is not as hollow as the one.
3, aluminum alloy, aluminum-magnesium alloy material shower
The advantages of aluminum alloy and aluminum-magnesium alloy are that they are not afraid of wear, light and durable. The downside is that it may take a long time. To be equipped from the shape, color. After selecting the style and color, you must first select the product material. The second is to look at the coating.

If it is silicone, you only need to squeeze the water hole by hand to clean up the scale and dirt in the hole. Plastic showers, nowadays use engineering plastics, and now the engineering plastics have good performance, strength and heat resistance. Plastic materials have the advantage of being affordable, but the disadvantage is that they are easily deformed by heat.
