Talking about the characteristics of stainless steel faucet and copper faucet
Stainless steel has extremely strong corrosion resistance, strong hardness and toughness, wear resistance, excellent thermal conductivity, good thermal stability, good chemical stability, non-toxic and harmless, environmentally friendly and clean, and the production and processing processes are environmentally friendly The impact is very small. It is a very ideal material for making faucets.
The stainless steel faucet has a sturdy structure, a very long service life, and a hard surface texture, which can well prevent wear and rust. It is not easy to scale when in use, is safe and environmentally friendly, and has almost no adverse effects on the human body and the environment. With the advancement of production technology and processing technology, stainless steel faucets have more outstanding performance in shape and appearance. The appearance technology of shiny stainless steel and brushed stainless steel has improved the decorativeness of stainless steel faucets to a very high level. However, due to the high difficulty of processing stainless steel, the current high-quality stainless steel faucets are usually relatively expensive.
2. Copper faucet
Copper is a very stable metal element and will not undergo oxidation reaction at room temperature. Copper has very strong strength, hardness, and abrasion resistance, does not burn, has strong durability, and has its own sterilization effect, which can significantly reduce the amount of microorganisms in the water that are beneficial to the human body.
The development of copper faucets has taken a long time. The early copper faucet material is mainly brass, which is the most common pure copper faucet on the market, and the lead content is usually 4% to 8%. After the brass faucet is used for a long time, an oxidation reaction will occur to produce patina, which contains a large amount of lead. Excessive lead in drinking water can lead to lead poisoning, which can affect human intelligence, kidney function and nervous system, even life-threatening. In order to avoid the production of copper rust, electroplating treatment is required in the production process of copper faucets, which has a serious impact on the environment. At the same time, the durability of the electroplated layer is relatively poor, and it is easy to be damaged, and then the faucet is corroded and rusted.
In response to these shortcomings of brass faucets, faucet manufacturers have begun to research and develop lead-free copper faucets, and have explored the electroplating process to solve these problems.
Copper is the first metal material discovered and used by humans, and has a natural attraction to humans. Most of the artistic decoration faucets will choose copper as the main material to express the classical artistic style. Especially retro faucets, usually made of copper or copper alloy into animal heads, dragons and other artistic shapes, used in villas, star hotels and other high-end venues or museums, art galleries and other venues that attach great importance to artistic flavor.
