With the gradual maturity of stainless steel sanitary manufacturing crafts in our country, stainless steel angle valves and taps,because of their healthy, environmental-friendly and durable characteristics, have become more and more popular with customers in recent years and taken market share from copper angle valves and taps, which means stainless steel sanitary wares are the trend of the sanitary ware industry. Our company uses 304 stainless steels in all products.

The differences between stainless steel taps and copper taps:
At present, more and more households and institutions are equipped with water purifying systems, but they still use high Lead taps which causes the contamination of the purified water. Lead is a heavy metal element which is bad for human hematological, secretory, nervous and immune systems and the growth of children.

1. Healthy,enviromentally-friendly ,lead-free

Stainless steel doesn't contain lead or release harmful substances or pollute water source, and ensures human health, hygiene, environmental protection and is of acid, alkali and corrosion resistance. What's more, the manufacturing process has no pollution to the environment. While copper is completely the opposite.

2. Beautiful,durable and stainless

Stainless steel is permanently beautiful,durable and stainless, which only needs surface polishing to show its silver white color. The surface of copper chromium electroplating chemical adhesion layer, depends on the plating quality, thickness, will be oxidized and drop in half a year or 3 to 6 years.

3. High-cost, complicated and difficult in manufacturing

Stainless steel melting point of about 1600 degrees, copper melting point of about 1000 degrees; stainless steel completed by precision casting, copper casting completed only by die-casting; hardness and toughness of stainless steel is more than three times of copper's, machine tool loss rate is more than a hundred times than copper's; stainless steel polishing material wastage rate is more than 10 times of stainless steel copper's; total processing cost of stainless steel is more than 10 times of the copper's.

Profiles of 304 stainless steel and copper taps after two-year usage

Profile of stainless steel tap
The stainless steel tap is still clean. That's why foreign countries use stainless steel to produce taps.
Profile of copper tap
Green is produced by the copper oxidizing dirt. Will you use such kind of taps?
