The main sales on the market are copper alloy faucets, stainless steel faucets and zinc alloy faucets. So which kind of substrate of faucet is more reliable?
In recent years, due to the rapid rise of copper prices, some manufacturers began to look for alternatives. Therefore, easy to cast zinc alloy with low cost has entered the vision of many manufacturers. In fact, zinc alloy is not suitable for making direct contact with water. The cartridge of a zinc alloy faucet is easy to corrode and the crack will occur when it is used for a long time. Moreover, zinc alloy faucets and fittings are extremely easy to oxidize. After a long soaking time, they will release zinc, lead and other harmful heavy metals to the human body.
Stainless steel contains chromium, nickel and other elements. Chromium is toxic and will destroy the body’s natural DNA, liver, kidney, etc., which will cause carcinogenic hazards and even gene mutation. In addition, when the water is sterilized by chlorine, the internal isotopes can be assimilated and corroded the faucets.
Copper itself has good antibacterial properties. The higher the content of copper, the lower the precipitation of heavy metals. In general, the copper content is more than 58%~59%, which can be called high quality copper. Currently on the market, copper content of a lot of copper faucets is 53%~55%, but some unscrupulous merchants are still selling their faucets under the cover of pure copper.
