What is the material classification of the faucet?
Tap material classification
The faucets commonly used in the market today are stainless steel, plastic, brass, zinc alloy faucets and the like.
1 Brass: Brass is the most common material made by faucet. It is made of international standard H59/H62 copper.
The casting is made by steel die for gravity casting. Its wall thickness is uniform, generally 2.5-3.0 mm.
The faucet made of brass is characterized by: no rust, durable, anti-oxidation, bactericidal effect on water (disad-
vantages; lead, lead is a kind of metal that is harmful to health, international standards require that lead in copper
content should not exceed 2.5%.
2 Stainless steel: Entering the 21st century, health and environmental protection have gradually become a new
theme in modern life. Stainless steel is an internationally recognized healthy material that can be implanted into
the human body. Therefore, kitchen and bathroom products made of stainless steel have become popular inurope
and the United States.
However, due to the high hardness and toughness of stainless steel, it is difficult to manufacture and process,
which seriously affects the mass production of stainless steel faucets. Therefore, the price of real 304 stainless
steel faucets is higher than that of copper.
Its characteristics are: health, environmental protection; all materials are made of high quality 304 stainless steel,
no rust, no lead, the faucet itself will not cause secondary lead pollution to the water source, harming people's
health, can create a healthy kitchen for us. Hygienic living water environment.
3 Zinc alloy:low-grade material, the density of zinc alloy is smaller than that of copper, and the tap of the copper
material is not heavy.From the inner wall,the surface of the zinc alloy is easily oxidized, and white oxidized powder
appears on the surface.
The strength is much worse than copper,the service life is not long,and the lead content is high. If the faucet made
of zinc alloy is only one to two years, it will oxidize and rot.
Nowadays,zinc alloy is mainly used for the manufacture of faucets.It is die-casted from zinc alloy and then chrome-
plated. Most of the faucet handles on the market are zinc alloy.
4 engineering plastics: ABS plastic faucet is a new type of green environmental protection product with corrosion
resistance,anti-aging,no rust,no lead,non-toxic,odorless, high pressure resistance, light weight, simple construction
and low price. .
The faucet made of plastic is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, non-polluting, compact in shape, simple and
convenient to install, and meets the standards of national drinking and drinking water for the public.
