  • Traditional Faucet Raw Material -Brass
    September 25, 2021 Traditional Faucet Raw Material -Brass
    The traditional material for faucets is brass. Brass is prized for faucets because it is very resistant to corrosion, has a relatively low melting point — making it easy to cast — is soft enough to machine with little effort yet hardy enough to endure the rigors of life as a faucet, takes finishes such as chrome plating very well, and is easily recycled. About 80% of the brass used in new faucets was previously used to make something else. Common yellow or "alpha" brass is about 60% copper and 30% zinc the rest being small amounts of other metals to give the brass specific properties. A little antimony or tin might be added to retard a form of corrosion known as dezincification which can weaken brass over time. A pinch of iron or manganese makes brass harder and nickel refines the grain structure improving strength and corrosion resistance. Aluminum may be added to make the brass stronger and more corrosion resistant. Admiralty and naval brasses used in salt-rich maritime environments contain a relatively high proportion of aluminum. The copper in brass is anti-microbial — it kills germs, a fact that has been known since the rise of the Pharaohs, but how it does so has only recently been uncovered.  Many fungi (mold and mildew) and most bacteria cannot survive in the presence of copper. In tests on colonies of E. Coli bacteria conducted by the EPA, 99.9% of the colony was killed after two hours of exposure to brass. Lead is added to make brass more malleable, less brittle, and easier to form. In faucet brass, however, lead is dangerous to human health, and especially dangerous to children because it can lech into drinking water. According to the Environmental Protection Agency lead can cause slowed growth, learning problems, hearing loss, anemia, hyperactivity, and behavior issues. Before 2014, a faucet could contain as much as 8% lead and still call itself lead-free. Now the maximum lead content in a faucet is 0.25% (1/4 of 1%), basically just a bare trace of lead. To ensure the absence of lead in the brass inside a faucet that is in contact with the water passing through the faucet, the faucet must be tested in a laboratory and certified lead-free. If it is not certified, it cannot be legally installed in a drinking water system. To comply with the new restrictions on lead, today's faucet brass uses other additives to ensure malleability. To produce a lead-free brass, the lead is replaced with bismuth or silicon to provide the needed malleability without the toxicity. Bismuth is similar to lead – right next to lead on the periodic table of elements – but it is not harmful to humans. Bismuth, however, is expensive. It is 300 times rarer than lead, even rarer than silver, which is the reason that bismuth-brass alloys are considerably more expensive than leaded brass. Bismuth has several other problems. It is, unlike lead, a brittle metal, and requires a more precise casting process to preserve the ductility of brass. The resul...

  • What are faucets made of?- Part 2
    September 21, 2021 What are faucets made of?- Part 2
    Unfortunately, the classic American faucet is increasingly not made in America. Some manufacturers have maintained substantial domestic manufacturing but many faucets are now made elsewhere — from China to  Paid Advertising Paid Advertising the Balkans — and merely distributed by American companies under their own brands. Elkay, Pfister, American Standard, and Eljer, for example, are long-established U.S. manufacturers that no longer manufacture any faucets in the U.S. As with anything, some faucets are better than others, and price, while generally reflective of quality, is no absolute guarantee. You do not necessarily get a better faucet for more money. All of the major faucet manufacturers, Kohler, Moen, Pfister, and Delta make mid-priced faucets that are lifetime or near-lifetime products. When you pay more than mid-price ($150-$350) then you are generally buying the cachet of high-style (KWC, Graff, Toto, Hansgrohe) or custom hand finishing (THG, Waterstone, Lefroy Brooks) or both. These are usually excellent faucets but not necessarily a quantum leap better than major-brand mid-priced faucets. They are produced in smaller runs or even made one at a time as they are ordered, so they do not have the cost savings of large production quantities. Thus the higher price. But, even these are often sharply discounted.

  • What are faucets made of?- Part 1
    September 11, 2021 What are faucets made of?- Part 1
    Today's faucets are designed to survive very harsh conditions, including thousands of on-off cycles every year and hard water mineral build-up, and still give year after year of flawless service. And, if it does break, a faucet is usually designed to be serviced by simply replacing the defective parts — typically a screwdriver operation — without first having to uninstall the faucet. Modern finishes are unlikely to flake or tarnish. Modern faucet plating and coating processes, including elec­tron beam physical vapor deposition — a process that is almost science fiction — can imitate anything: brass, nickel, pewter, even silver and gold. Epoxy coatings can keep that new finish looking new for a long time, with proper care. Faucet valves rarely leak. Ceramic cartridge technologies have almost entirely banished the midnight drip, drip, drip. But, some of the best faucets still use older, tried and true, technologies that are proven to work well. These may require periodic maintenance, not an onerous or difficult task. For the old house purists, these are often the favored technologies. But, for the rest of us, the newer almost-no-maintenance ceramic technology is a better choice.
