Nickel or chromium has the function of resisting neutral hydrochloric acid, which will protect the faucet from being damaged for a long time. Corroded. When purchasing a faucet, check the surface of the faucet in a well-lit area for oxidation spots, pores, leakage plating, and burn marks. The product with uniform color and no burrs and grit is a good product.
