Currently on the market, some companies use miscellaneous copper, zinc alloy water-passing parts, and glue-up products in violation of regulations. The lead content exceeds the limit. Consumers must pay special attention when purchasing. To improve the quality of faucet products, the emphasis is on reducing the precipitation of heavy metals, especially lead-containing substances.
So, for the faucets of all kinds of materials in the bathroom market, which one should be selected to be healthier?
Relatively speaking, faucets made of low-lead copper, pure copper, and stainless steel are healthier. Pure copper and stainless steel faucets do not contain lead, but the production cost is very high, so the price is also high.
Compared with pure copper faucets made of high quality stainless steel, it has the characteristics of no lead, acid resistance, alkali resistance, no corrosion, no release of harmful substances, no pollution to water quality, and stainless steel faucets need to be electroplated, not easy to rust, hardness The toughness is more than two times higher than that of copper products. The surface of the product is not prone to corrosion and bruises, so it is very easy to clean.
The functional design of the stainless steel faucet not only brings users extraordinary comfort and healthy water enjoyment, but also contributes a lot of energy for environmental protection. It has begun to become a brand new consumer fashion.
Stainless steel faucet advantages
1.Strong corrosion resistance
Physically polished stainless steel surface is more dense. Like stainless steel water pipes, the surface of stainless steel faucets is thin and dense, and the chromium-rich oxide film makes the stainless steel water nozzle have good corrosion resistance. High quality CFS or 304 stainless steel neutral salt spray test can reach more than 300 hours.
2.Easy cleaning and maintenance
The brushed surface treatment makes the texture of stainless steel faucet products more delicate and clearer, and the surface is less prone to stains. It is very convenient to clean and maintain.
3. Safety and health
The stainless steel material does not contain lead and other heavy metals that are harmful to the human body. It will not cause secondary pollution of water quality, ensure the water quality is pure and sanitary, and can create a healthy kitchen and bathroom living water environment.
4. Product quality is easy to judge
The surface of the stainless steel faucet is polished, and the visual appearance can be used to judge the quality of the product. It is easy to judge the quality of the product, and there is no need to worry about the coating.
5.Good mechanical properties
Stainless steel has good mechanical properties such as tensile strength and yield strength. Its strength and hardness are much higher than those of commonly used materials such as copper, aluminum alloys, lead-zinc alloys, etc., which makes the products have the advantages of resistance to deformation, wear resistance and load bearing.
6, long life
Stainless steel faucet products have good mechanical properties and strong corrosion resistance, and are equipped with high-quality ceramic discs to seal the spool. As long as they are properly installed and maintained, stainless steel faucet products can generally be used for decades or even longer, even if the product spool Calculated bad, just replace the spool to continue to use.
