The faucet is a relatively simple bathroom hardware product, which is also easily overlooked. In fact, the quality of the faucet is not only related to the convenience and durability of use but also related to health problems, because the lead precipitation of the faucet exceeds the standard. Drinking water safety is very important. At present, there are many types of faucets in the building materials market or online sales, so it is necessary to purchase a safety faucet with quality assurance so that the whole family can enjoy safe drinking water.
The development of the water head industry has experienced three stages of cast iron faucet, copper water dragon, and copper plating faucet, but no way to reduce lead content has been found. At present, some faucet companies use recycled copper, zinc alloy water-passing parts and rubber-filled products in violation of regulations. The lead content exceeds the standard, which is very serious. Consumers should pay special attention when purchasing. The choice of healthy and safe faucet products is mainly based on the precipitation of heavy metals, especially lead-containing substances in the product.
Generally, in ordinary faucets, the proportion of lead in castings is between 3% and 8%. If the faucet is used for a long time, metal substances such as lead inside may be released into the water. Drinking too high levels of lead can cause lead damage, which not only affects the mental growth of the drinker but also seriously affects the health of the body and has a greater impact on children. The data show that severe lead pollution often jeopardizes human fertility, kidney function, and nervous system.
With the development of science and technology and manufacturing processes, it is possible to manufacture faucets from stainless steel. Stainless steel is an internationally recognized health material that is lead-free and resistant to acids, alkalis, corrosion, and harmful substances. Therefore, the use of stainless steel faucets ensures good health.
The manufacturing process of stainless steel faucets has gradually matured in China, and it has greatly improved both in production and in grades. It is understood that although the current market share is small, because of its health, environmental protection, durability, and other characteristics, in recent years, more and more consumers are favored, gradually grab the market share of copper faucets, stainless steel faucets have become The development trend of the bathroom hardware industry. At present, 95% of faucets at home and abroad are made of copper, and stainless steel faucets are now popular, which is a new trend in the market.
