The composition and quality of common bathroom faucet hardware

1: Material

At present, the main materials of faucets on the market are mainly cast iron, plastic, zinc alloy, copper alloy, and stainless steel. Cast iron is prone to rust, plastic is prone to aging, and zinc alloy has poor stability and is prone to bursting, resulting in not long use.

High-end faucets are basically made of national standard brass, and the price of national standard brass and non-standard brass is very different. The material, lead content and impurity content of national standard brass are very low, which can bring everyone a healthy and environmentally friendly life. The latest stainless steel material is also widely used in the faucet industry. High-end faucets are generally above 304. Stainless steel has good machinability and natural drawing effect on its surface. The high-end is very popular among young consumers. The price is relatively low. Brass will have certain advantages.

2: Spool

High-end faucet spools mostly use imported or foreign original ceramic spools, which are durable and can reach 500,000 switches without leakage.

The traditional valve core is made of metal materials such as cast iron, copper, etc. After a long time of use, such metal materials will be worn and rusted, resulting in poor faucet switching or tight sealing.

3: Hose

High-end faucet inlet hose adopts pure stainless steel 304 hose, 304 stainless steel hose guarantees the purity of water quality.

4: Bubbler

The water flow of the high-end faucet is gentle and comfortable without splashing around. This is because a bubbler is installed, which can fully mix the flowing water and air, so that the water flow has a foaming effect. With the addition of air, the washing power of the water is improved a lot, thereby effectively reducing the water consumption.

5: Surface technology

The electroplated surface of high-priced faucets usually has a mirror-like feel. When you press it with your finger, the traces of handprints will disappear immediately. Moreover, advanced environmental protection electroplating technology can prevent secondary pollution of products and ensure the purity of water. For most hardware sanitary wares, the electroplating process is basically equivalent to chrome plating.

Bathroom hardware refers to all the metal decorations in the bathroom, generally including soap nets, soap dishes, mouthwash cup holders, etc. These small accessories have various shapes, rich materials, and different brands, styles, and functions. Moreover, bathroom hardware is generally used very frequently, and buying a set of high-quality products will bring a lot of convenience to daily life.

Different from the pros and cons of products in five aspects:

Raw materials:

Excellent: Generally use fine polished pure copper, high-quality zinc alloy or titanium alloy as raw materials, with tight structure, heavy weight and thick hand feeling.

Inferior: Generally use inferior zinc alloy recycled materials as raw materials, and cut corners to reduce costs, loose structure, light weight, and frivolity.

Die casting and finishing process:

Excellent: Large-scale precision computer-controlled die-casting machine tools and digital precision machine tools are used, and the surface of the blank is smooth, flat, without pores, and silk defects. There are many processes.

Inferior: Small die-casting machine and simple machine tool are used, the pressure is insufficient, the surface of the product has pores, silk patterns, cracks, defects and surface inequality, and the process is simple.

Bathroom hardware plating:

Excellent: Strictly follow the national electroplating process standards, using imported raw copper, nickel plating, chrome plating three process coatings, bright luster, thick visual perception, long-term use does not wear, rust, blistering or peeling.

Inferior: The electroplating layer is thin and uneven, the structure is loose, the bonding force is poor, and the gloss is dim. Because the chrome is directly plated on the blank, the surface is easily rusted, worn, blistered, and peeled after a period of use.

Bathroom hardware accessories:

Excellent: Fasteners use stainless steel screws or copper screws, and glass products use imported glass rings and plates, with uniform thickness, high transparency, and clear vision.

Inferior: The fasteners are made of iron screws, which are easy to rust. The glass products are made of domestic low-grade products, with uneven thickness, low transparency, and turbid visual perception.

Bathroom hardware packaging:

Excellent: The packaging design is beautiful, the printing is exquisite, the trademark is clear and eye-catching, the manufacturer and the detailed address are indicated on the external package, and the internal package has a quality inspection certificate and installation instructions.

Inferior: The packaging uses poor raw materials, rough printing, unclear and eye-catching trademarks, and generally does not indicate the manufacturer in the packaging, or even the “three-no” products in white packaging.
