“Faucet material will gradually replace copper stainless steel.” In recent years, many people in the industry have put forward such a viewpoint. As consumers pay more and more attention to environmental health, they are healthier and more environmentally friendly, stainless steel faucets will become the future trend. Stainless steel faucet is in recent years more and more popular with consumers of emerging products. As the technology matures, it will become more and more popular and will take more market share from the copper faucet.
It is reported that many hardware plumbing manufacturers began to develop stainless steel faucets many years ago, but due to the hardness, toughness, solution casting and cutting and processing of stainless steel, the difficulty and cost are much higher than copper.
With the gradual maturation of stainless steel faucet manufacturing process in China, stainless steel faucet in production and grade have been greatly improved, and in the material, stainless steel material is more healthy and environmental protection, 100% recycling. Because of its health, environmental protection, durability and other characteristics, in recent years, more and more favored by consumers, and with the maturity of manufacturing technology, it will become more and more popular, occupy more copper faucet, stainless steel faucet market share. It will be the future trend in the bathroom industry.
There are four main types of faucets, namely copper, PVC, cast iron and stainless steel. At present, most of the high-end faucets in the domestic market use pure copper as the main raw material. According to experts, copper and copper faucet castings in the lead content is generally 4% -8%. If the faucet is not used for a long time, the inner wall will produce green rust, in which the lead and other substances may be released into the tap water, drinking lead. High water can cause lead poisoning, which not only affects the psychological growth of the drinker, but also seriously affects physical health and has a greater impact on children.
Copper is easy to rust, so the surface of copper products are usually plated, that is, a layer of nickel or chromium is plated on the surface, and the plating will gradually fall off according to the quality and thickness of the plating. The waste produced by plating has a very serious impact on the environment.
It is understood that the surface of the stainless steel faucet does not need electroplating, the surface only needs to be polished and polished and other physical treatment, it can maintain a long-term silver luster, never rust, more environmentally friendly and durable, and easy to clean.
Thus, as long as the manufacturers can step over the threshold of stainless steel faucet manufacturing technology, will inevitably bring revolutionary changes, stainless steel faucet natural achievements in the future.
The main material of the faucet stainless steel, copper, zinc alloy, etc.. At this stage, copper faucets are similarly marketed and copper is better. Some of the stainless steel taps produced nowadays are mostly iron copper and then chrome plated. But with the improvement of technology, the future market prospects of stainless steel faucets will be even hotter.
On the whole, manufacturers, distributors and industry professionals are generally optimistic about the future of stainless steel faucets.
