Copper is the best material for faucet manufacture at present

At present, whether in Europe or America or in our country, most of the market is copper faucet. The main material of copper faucet is copper and zinc, commonly known as brass, it needs to add a small amount of lead in the process of producing faucet to improve the cutting performance of brass. If the faucet is not included in the production of lead, not only will be cutting difficulties, poor forging performance problems, even if the finished product, will also be due to stress corrosion resistance and lead to cracking.


Copper faucet is inseparable from lead, why the mainstream faucet in Europe and the United States is made of brass, copper is not replaced by other materials? The main reason is the antimicrobial resistance of copper. According to historical records before the 2500, Egypt began to use copper for wound disinfection, treatment of eye infections and burns, and drinking water disinfection, the United States EPA, and other world authorities of the scientific evidence, antibacterial copper in two hours to kill more than 99.9% of the bacteria, become the world's most effective contact surface materials, any other materials (such as silver ion coating or stainless steel) can not compare favorably. Copper can quickly kill superbugs such as MRSA, and bacteria can not produce antibodies, copper taps inside the wall will not breed bacteria, this is other materials (such as: stainless steel, plastic) does not have the advantage. With low lead copper (lead content less than 0.25%) batch production, anti-bacterial performance, there is reason to believe that in the future is still the best material for faucets.
