Why We Choose SUS 304 Faucet?
Stainless steel faucets have better hardness and toughness than copper, and are very durable. No rust, lead-free, healthy and environmentally friendly.
There are 201, 304, and 316 commonly used in the production of faucets. They may look the same, but the actual performance and price are quite different.
SUS 201: We also call it high Manganese Steel, for it has high Mn content, easy to rust; less nickel, corrosion resistance is not as good as 304. In the market, some unscrupulous merchants use 201 as 304 to deceive consumers in order to save costs.
SUS 304: Also called 18/8 stainless steel, the content is about 18% chromium + 8% nickel, and the anti-corrosion and rust resistance is better than that of 201. It is currently the most widely used stainless steel material.
SUS 316: Also called 18/10 stainless steel, the content is about 18% chromium + 10% nickel, the price is relatively expensive, and the corrosion resistance is very good. SS 316 is usually used in some high-end equipment, such as aerospace, food machinery, high-end kitchenware and other fields.
（PS: We can distinguish the material by detecting the potion.）
Developed countries in Europe and the United States have very strict requirements for stainless steel tableware. It is stipulated that stainless steel used in direct food contact areas contains at least 16% chromium, which can be said to be a very authoritative reference. In our daily life, our cooking water and drinking water come from faucets. For safety and health, stainless steel faucets must be made of 304 at least.
