Now every household has a faucet. Its use brings convenience to our water use. It allows us to freely control the water output and use water reasonably, and it is not easy to cause waste of water resources. There are many kinds of raw materials for faucets on the market, such as copper faucets, stainless steel faucets, etc. Faucets of different materials have different characteristics. Which one is better for copper and stainless steel faucets? What is the difference between copper and stainless steel faucets?
1. The advantages of all copper faucets
Compared with other raw material faucets, it has many advantages. It has good antibacterial properties and can effectively kill bacteria in the faucet. Even if the tap water bursts and foreign objects enter, we don’t have to worry about the bacteria in the drinking water. infection. The all-copper faucet also has outstanding cutting performance, good wear resistance and easy processing, but the price is more expensive. Copper faucets can be divided into non-standard copper, national standard copper, and other copper faucets according to the raw materials. At present, some good faucets at home and abroad are all copper.
2. Advantages of stainless steel faucet
Faucets made of this material are more common. Compared with copper faucets, it has higher hardness, better durability, no maintenance, and more worry-free use. The stainless steel faucet is environmentally friendly. It does not contain lead and will not produce any peculiar smell when used. It can effectively ensure the quality of the water is healthy and hygienic without polluting the water quality. The appearance of the stainless steel faucet is processed by a polishing process, its appearance has a silver luster, and the hand feels smooth and detailed. It has good acid and alkali resistance, is not easy to corrode, and its appearance is not rusty or deformed.
What is the difference between stainless steel faucet and copper faucet
1. If the comparison is made from the appearance process, the stainless steel material will be better. The appearance of the stainless steel faucet is polished and polished, and its product surface can maintain a silver-white luster without rusting. The surface treatment of copper faucets is mostly nickel or chromium plating. Its electroplating layer depends on its quality. The copper faucet will gradually lose its appearance in one year at the fastest rate and 10 years at the slower rate. It will show pitting, peeling off the electroplating layer, and showing copper rust.
2. If compared from the use situation, the copper faucet will show different levels of lead content after a period of use, and even show the phenomenon of long copper rust; while the stainless steel products are acid-resistant, alkali-resistant, corrosion-free, and will not release harmful substances, and The hardness and resistance of stainless steel are more than 2 times higher than that of copper.
