VIGA lets you know the various materials for the hardware bathroom faucet.
1. What are the materials of the faucet?
What materials are there in the faucet? At present, the faucet materials on the market are mainly cast iron, titanium alloy, zinc alloy, copper chrome plating, stainless steel chrome plating, aluminum alloy chrome plating, iron chrome plating, plastic, ceramics and other materials.
1. Iron faucet
Iron faucets are prone to rust, and it is difficult to replace and disassemble, just like a magnet. Generally, they are some small faucets. The surface is more difficult to handle and the appearance is rough. The hot and cold faucets are less iron, and the processing is more difficult; the iron faucets have gradually been eliminated.
2, zinc alloy faucet
The zinc alloy faucet is harmful to the human body, and the shell is easily corroded and broken after being impacted by water, and the surface is white after being ground. At present, it is generally made by sand-casting process and machine die-casting, and the interior is smooth and flat.
3, copper faucet
The inside of the copper is rough, and the inside of the faucet can be observed. It is no problem to see the brass color in the inconspicuous place. At present, copper is the most suitable material for the faucet.
4, ceramic faucet
Compared with other materials, the faucet made of ceramic has the advantages of no rust, no oxidation, and not easy to wear. The appearance is generous and brings out the high-end atmosphere of the whole space.
5, stainless steel faucet
Stainless steel faucets are lead-free, acid and alkali resistant, non-corrosive, and have twice the hardness and toughness than copper faucets. However, hardness, toughness and cutting are more difficult and cost-effective than copper faucets.
Among the above faucet materials, cast iron faucets have been gradually eliminated, and all plastic faucets are mostly used in special fields; nowadays, the most common faucet materials for household use are: all copper, alloy, ceramic, stainless steel and so on. Among these commonly used faucet materials, alloy faucets are harmful to human health; ceramics and stainless steel faucets have their own advantages, but the price is high, the processing technology is high, and the number of products is small, which has not yet been fully popularized; copper faucets rely on excellent cost performance It occupies the dominant position in the faucet material market and is the only one among the household faucets.
2 What kind of material is good?
At present, the copper faucet is very good, because copper is not easy to corrode, has a good antibacterial effect, can kill 99% of bacteria in tap water, even if the tap water bursts, so that foreign objects do not have to worry about being affected. Bacterial infection; its metal cutting performance is also very good, easy to process, reducing production costs, and its service life is also very long; however, some friends may think that copper faucet contains lead, which is harmful to the human body. However, what I want to tell you here is that the amount of lead in the copper faucet is far less than the lead content in the road exhaust. It is very likely to suffer from blood lead in the road for one year, even if the lead exceeds the standard. The faucet is also impossible to achieve this level, and the lead content in the general copper faucet is very small, so you can use it with confidence.
In addition to the copper faucet, the ceramic faucet is better than other materials, it will not rust, it will not be oxidized and worn, its appearance looks stylish and generous, because its outer shell is also made of ceramic. It is better to match the bathroom products, so that the ceramics look more artistic and set off the high-end temperament of the bathroom, but it is not good to be careful when using the ceramic faucet, otherwise it will be easy to break. And its cost is also higher, so the price of ceramic faucets on the market is expensive.
