In recent years, with the advancement of technology, faucet products are dazzling. In order to match different styles of home design, the color of faucets is more abundant, and there are also various wonderful appearances in gloss, texture and texture. Today, I will introduce the surface treatment process of the faucet to you.
Common faucet surface treatment processes include chrome plating, PVD, baking varnish, brushed, ORB, etc. They have their own characteristics and can bring different embellishments to our bathrooms.
- Chrome plating
The most common processing method for faucets on the market, chrome is a silvery white metal with a bluish luster. Chromium also has a strong passivation ability, and it is not easy to change in a humid environment, and it can maintain the surface luster for a long time. The appearance similar to precious metals is very decorative, so chrome-plated faucets are more popular with consumers now.
PVD is physical vapor deposition, which is an advanced surface treatment technology widely used in the world. Under vacuum conditions, the gas discharge is used to partially separate the gas or the evaporated substance, and the evaporated substance or its reactant is deposited on the substrate while the gas ions or the evaporated substance ion are bombarded.
Rich and elegant colors of PVD, excellent resistance to harsh environments, easy to clean, and non-fading properties make it popular among consumers.
Apply primer and topcoat on the base of the faucet. Every time the paint is applied, it is sent to a dust-free constant temperature paint room for electric heating or far-infrared high-temperature baking to cure the paint layer. The surface of The baking varnish faucet is smooth and shiny, and can present a visual texture similar to that of a piano, making the whole product look very layered.
The brushed treatment brings a metallic texture to the faucet. According to the decoration requirements of the faucet, texture can be made on the surface under the effect of external force. The brushed treatment is divided into stainless steel wire drawing, nickel wire drawing, etc., and wire drawing. The broad hand feels very delicate, showing a restrained beauty.
The ORB process is to oxidize and dye the copper or copper-plated surface into a bronze or black color, which can be brushed or polished later, and finally sprayed with oil. Different from the bronze color, ORB is black and brown, and the edges and corners will have a red brushed texture through brushing. Products treated with ORB will have a delicate hand feeling, endowing it with a dull and deep connotation color, with a dense retro flavor.
Appropriate surface treatment can make the overall shape of the faucet rich and full. If you choose the right faucet, it can also become the finishing touch of the bathroom, making every opening a pleasure.
