Advantages of stainless steel faucet

Field corrosion test data shows that the service life of stainless steel can reach 100 years, and there is almost no need for maintenance during the life cycle, which avoids the cost and trouble of faucet replacement, and has low operating costs. Realize the same life span of stainless steel faucet and building.
my country has become a major producer of kitchen supplies in the world. The main material of kitchen supplies, 304# stainless steel, is lead-free, non-rusting, environmentally friendly and hygienic, which is a worldwide consensus. Stainless steel products do not need to be electroplated. In the process of polishing the surface treatment, only the powder and dust generated by the polishing material are well filtered, and the pollution to the air environment is very small. There is no occupational disease caused by the polishing of stainless steel. When the stainless steel faucet needs to be cleaned, it can be wiped with a steel wire ball with detergent and rinsed with water, and it will be as bright as new. The ceramic valve core is a professional manufacturer's product. The market is used to guarantee for 5 years. When the valve core needs to be replaced, just contact the faucet dealer and purchase a new spool according to the faucet model. The faucet can be used normally as new. Reduce the trouble of replacing the faucet and waste of resources.
Replace copper
According to a person from the China Quality Certification Center, the lead content in copper and copper faucet castings is usually 4%-8%. If the faucet is not used for a long time, green patina will appear on the inner wall, and the lead and other harmful substances in it may be released into tap water. in. Drinking water that contains too much lead can cause lead poisoning, which will not only affect the intellectual growth of the drinker, but also seriously affect the health of the child, and the impact on children will be even greater. Scientific data shows that severe lead pollution often endangers human reproductive capacity, kidney function and nervous system.
The material of kitchen faucet is generally brass, which is the most common pure copper faucet on the market. However, due to the characteristics of the kitchen environment, pure copper faucets are not necessarily the best choice. All pure copper faucets have electroplating on the outermost layer, and the function of electroplating is to prevent corrosion and rust of the brass inside. There is a lot of oily smoke in the kitchen, coupled with the greasy hands and detergent when washing dishes, you will often need to clean the faucet. If you do not use the correct way to clean, it is likely to damage the electroplating layer of the faucet, causing the faucet to be corroded and rusted. If you want to choose an all-copper kitchen faucet, you must be sure to have excellent electroplating, otherwise it will easily cause the faucet to rust and corrode.
Some manufacturers have used high-quality 304 stainless steel to make faucets. Compared with pure copper faucets, high-quality stainless steel faucets are free of lead, acid, alkali, corrosion, release harmful substances, and will not pollute tap water. And the stainless steel faucet does not need electroplating, it is very difficult to rust, and the hardness and toughness are more than twice higher than that of copper products, so it is very convenient to clean. However, due to the high difficulty of processing stainless steel, the current high-quality stainless steel faucets are usually relatively expensive.
The surface of the copper faucet needs to be electroplated, which causes serious environmental pollution. The copper surface treatment method is nickel-plated and chromium-plated. The surface is not resistant to acids and alkalis, and cannot be cleaned with washing water and hard towels. It is inconvenient to take care of. The surface will gradually lose its luster and pitting during 1 to 2 years, and 3 to 5 years. Finally, the electroplating layer will peel off, revealing patina.
