Chromium-plated brass and stainless steel are commonly used materials for kitchen faucets. They are two things with different characteristics, types, and components. But in terms of the nature of use, there is no big difference. Although copper does not rot for many years, no matter how powerful the electroplating process is, it will still appear depleting after a few years. Stainless steel is too brittle and easy to age, and if the grade is different, it will also rust.
Stainless steel has good weldability, corrosion resistance, good polishing performance, and strong heat resistance. The main component of chromium plating is not metal chromium salt, but chromic acid, a chromium oxidation acid, which belongs to the strong acid plating solution. The dispersion ability of the chrome plating solution is very low.
Due to the excellent performance of the chromium plating layer, it is widely used as the outer layer and functional coating of the protective-decorative coating system and has always played an important role in the electroplating industry.
