Below, Xiaobian will share the quality skills of identifying stainless steel faucets .

1. Observe the surface process:
The high-quality copper faucet has superb craftsmanship on its surface. It is generally polished and plated. Therefore, it looks more crystal-clear on the surface. When you purchase it, you can see the quality of the surface plating process when the light is sufficient. If it looks as bright as a mirror, it means that the surface treatment is good. If the surface does not look too bright, or there are etched spots, oxidized spots, etc., it is recommended not to buy it because the plating process is not guaranteed, and The high-quality copper faucet has a certain thickness on its surface. At present, the international standard for faucet plating thickness is 8 microns, and the best is up to 12 microns, while the inferior copper faucet has a surface plating of only 3-4 microns. Look, so when you buy, try to let the business show relevant data as well.

2. Observe the section interface:
Many copper faucets on the market are often treated with copper plating on the surface, and the internal material is not made of copper. Therefore, be careful when purchasing. Carefully observe whether the cross-section of the faucet is made of copper. You can use a knife to scrape at the cross-section of the faucet to see how the internal material is.

3, the faucet spool purchase:
When purchasing a full copper faucet, don't forget to choose the valve core. The high-quality faucet valve core is generally made of ceramic material, and its sealing performance is good and wearable. Therefore, when purchasing the faucet, be sure to ensure the valve core material. If it is not easy to choose, it is recommended that the merchant present relevant evidence and write the terms of the purchase into the contract for future use.

4, more hands touched:
In order to ensure that the faucet is made of all-copper material, it is recommended to touch the surface of the faucet as much as possible during the purchase process, and the copper material is plated and has a heavy feeling when touched by hand, and the surface resistance is large. If it feels smooth on the surface, it means it is not a copper material, it is not recommended to buy.

5, tapping and listening to the sound:
When purchasing a full copper faucet, in order to determine whether the material is made of copper, you can tap the surface by hand when you purchase it and then listen to the sound of the faucet. If the sound is crisp when struck, it is stainless steel. If the sound is dull when tapping, it means it is made of copper.

6, bubbler purchase:
When selecting a full copper faucet, the quality of the bubbler must also be considered. The general quality foamer is made of ABS environmentally-friendly engineering plastic material, which effectively filters the sound of the flowing water so that the water flow produces more bubbles, and the water splash does not splash. It can also achieve the effect of energy-saving. If it does not have a bubbler or a poorly made bubbler faucet, it is not recommended to buy it.

7, check the accessories:
When purchasing a full copper faucet, you need to check the accessories. The good accessories are also made of copper. Other materials are used. Although the surface is coated with electroplating, the color will fade to yellow during use. Will be black, affecting the use and also affect the appearance.
