How to identify the material and pros and cons of the faucet
Posted on September 28 2022
In the history of the development of faucets, there have always been different materials as the main body. The most common ones are: iron, plastic, all copper, alloy, package, stainless steel, etc. Among them, iron faucets have been eliminated due to rust and other reasons, and plastics are mainly used in special industries. Therefore, the most common ones on the market are stainless steel, all-copper, alloy, and package faucets. Below, we will introduce to you the advantages and disadvantages of various faucets.
- All BrassFaucet
All brass faucets are made of brass. Brass itself has a bactericidal function and can disinfect water bodies. Most of the faucets will be chrome-plated on the surface, which has high wear resistance and corrosion resistance. According to the quality, it depends on the production process and brass content of the faucet. At present, the best one is the gravity casting process, and the faucet has been made of 59 brass as the raw material.
- Alloy Faucet
Alloy faucets are less expensive than all-brass faucets, but because they contain zinc alloy materials, which are harmful to the human body and have extremely poor durability, most of them are used in faucet handles. And at present, some manufacturers will increase the weight of alloy faucets, making it difficult to distinguish them from all-copper faucets. Therefore, consumers are advised not to buy faucets that are too cheap.
- Ceramic Faucet
Ceramic faucet has the advantages of no rust, no oxidation, strong wear resistance, and its material is beautiful and elegant, with an artistic sense that other materials do not have. However, due to the complex production process, the price is usually relatively high, and there are certain requirements for maintenance.
- Stainless Steel Faucet
Stainless steel faucet is the latest type of faucet material, and it is also the most potential faucet material. Due to its special material, it has strong advantages such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, no rust, and no release of harmful substances, and its hardness and toughness are better than all. Copper faucets are strong. However, the high hardness of stainless steel makes it more difficult to cast and process than all-copper faucets, and the cost is higher, which also leads to higher prices.
