What are the materials of the faucet

1. All copper faucet
The pure copper faucet is made of all copper, the surface is chrome-plated, the gloss is high, and it has a higher anti-wear and anti-corrosion function. First of all, the quality is distinguished by its own copper content and process. The copper used in plumbing professions is mainly 59 copper. The number represents the copper content. The higher the copper content, the higher the density and the heavier weight. Therefore, weight is one of the standards for distinguishing the level of faucets.

2. Alloy faucet
The price of alloy faucet is much lower than that of all-copper faucet, and this kind of faucet is easier to produce on a large scale. In the meantime, many of the zinc alloys are used. Zinc alloy faucets are harmful to the human body and are very unused. Now zinc alloy can be used to make faucet handles and some bathroom hardware pendants. Because the zinc alloy electroplating process is very old, and some manufacturers will deliberately increase the weight of the zinc alloy faucet, it is difficult to distinguish it from the copper faucet by weight and appearance. For your health, it is still recommended to buy faucets that have passed relevant certification and evaluation organizations.

3. Ceramic faucet
The ceramic faucet is taken out of context and is made of ceramic. Compared with other faucets, ceramic faucets have the advantages of no rust, oxidation, and wear. The ceramic faucet has a beautiful appearance. Because the outer shell is also a ceramic product, it can be better distributed with the bathroom products, adding the artistic sense of ceramic products to bring out the temperament of the bathroom.

4. Stainless steel faucet
The stainless steel faucet does not contain lead, is acid and alkali resistant, does not corrode, does not release harmful substances, and does not pollute the tap water source. It is understood that the appearance of stainless steel faucets above 304 does not need to be electroplated, and its appearance only needs to be polished to flash its stainless steel color, and can continue to maintain the silver-white luster, not easy to rust, and the hardness and resistance of stainless steel are higher than copper products Times more. However, stainless steel is much more difficult and expensive than copper in terms of hardness, resistance, melting and cutting.
