Stainless steel sinks are the first choice for home improvement designers who are looking for exquisite fashion kitchen life. So how do we choose when facing Stainless Steel Sink Manufacturers?
1.Measuring the thickness of the stainless steel sink: Good stainless steel sinks use relatively thick plates. Because the sink has been edge-treated, it is difficult to see the thickness all at once. The easiest way is to press the surface of the sink slightly. If you press it down, it means that The material is very thin, of course, if you can borrow a vernier caliper and a micrometer, do not be so troublesome.
2.The weight of stainless steel sink: Stainless steel is a kind of ferroalloy. The specific gravity of steel is 7.87. Nickel and chromium heavy metals are added inside. The proportion of these metals is larger than that of steel, so the weight is relatively heavy (of course, the thickness of the sheet must also be referenced). If it is counterfeit, poor quality stainless steel, such as steel chrome plated light weight.
3.Look at the stainless steel sink process: there are welding and one-piece molding. We have seen some famous brand sinks. The same appearance size, but the price is very different. There are material factors here, but also the cost of the process. Of course, it can be said that the one-piece stainless steel sink is definitely better than the welding method. The first-class sinks are generally produced by a stamping method. Of course, there are also low-end products inside the brand name. Many of the welding methods are used. Got it.
The difference between the one-piece forming and the welding method: the welding method, punching the groove surface and the groove body respectively, connecting the two by the welding method, and filling and polishing the surface of the weld surface, generally the welding appearance is not visible on the front surface. This kind of production method has a simple process, less production loss, and relatively low cost. In one forming method, the sink is formed by pressing a whole piece of sheet material, which requires high processing equipment and molds. Due to the high requirements on the quality and ductility of the sheet material in a single molding, 0.8-1 mm thick sheet is generally used for stamping, and the whole mold and imported stamping equipment are used. Can be completed. In the production of a forming method, the edge of the sheet metal is greatly cut, and the cost of mold and equipment is high.
