The difference of copper alloy, aluminium alloy and stainless steel shower room

Most of the copper material in shower room is in the form of hinge, that is to say, flat door. Copper alloy has good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, high hardness, not easy to scratch.
Copper is divided into casting copper and forged copper.Casting is a metal melting, and then flows into the cavity with a specific shape, after solidification formed a specific shape; forging is the metal is heated, but still solid, the mold is then placed on a platform or a specific shape, with tools such as forging hammer into specific shape.Copper casting process is simple, can be single or mass production, the price is relatively low; But because of making the principle, it is inevitable that there will be fine pores, and the density is far from forging copper.Forging can refine the metal grain, the intensity is higher than the casting, but the manufacturing cost of the mold is very high, the price will be several times than the casting copper. In addition, copper alloy is an important index to measure the quality of corrosion resistance and coating.
The cost of forging copper itself is high, and the process requirement is high, so it is used in the expensive shower room.Aluminum alloy in the shower room refers to titanium magnesium alloy, titanium magnesium alloy can be said as the enhanced version of aluminum magnesium alloy.The corrosion resistance and mechanical properties of titanium magnesium alloys are better than that of aluminum magnesium alloys, but they are more difficult to process, especially the heat processing. The strength of titanium magnesium alloy is three to four times that of ordinary aluminum alloy, and the higher the strength, the more pressure it can bear. So comprehensive security, economy, beautiful sex consideration, now many professional shower room manufacturer’s sliding door is mainly titanium magnesium alloy.
The purity of Aluminum Alloy is a very important index, some shower room manufacturers in order to save costs, using mostly recycled aluminum, the surface of trachoma, pinhole, lines, color dim, soft texture, easily deformed or broken.Long term exposure to the shower shampoo, liquid soap and other cleaning products have a pH of more or less, for a long time, difficult to clean up the profile is easy to rust, can easily lead to the explosion of shower room.Good shower room manufacturers, like Fred shower room on strictly select material, use native aluminium, primary aluminum is evener, surface can also processing through many layers, can oxidation coloring a variety of color, coating and firm, tonal and bright, corrosion resistant.Most of stainless steel in the shower room is 304 stainless steel, 304 stainless steel is in accordance with the ASTM standards to produce a brand of stainless steel, its corrosion resistance is very good, in order to keep corrosion resistance, 304 stainless steel containing more than 18% of chromium, more than 8% of the nickel.There are many manufacturers introduced the so-called stainless steel shower room, the actual chromium and nickel content is not up to the standard, is the production of 304 stainless steel waste mixed with other materials synthesized, not only corrosion resistance is not high, and security is not guaranteed.In view of the production cost of 304 stainless steel, the general price of stainless steel shower room are mostly belong to this category, is not recommended to buy. As we all know, the hardness of stainless steel is very high, according to this feature, made of stainless steel shower is not easy to deformation, long and stable.
Comprehensive comparison (comparison of three materials with high quality products).Hardness: Forged Copper > stainless steel > titanium magnesium alloy;Corrosion resistance: stainless steel > forging copper > titanium magnesium alloy;The easy forming degree (which will affect the fit with each component): titanium magnesium alloy > forging copper > stainless steel.Therefore, the purchase of shower room, first in determining the structure of reasonable, safe, qualified materials under the premise, and then according to personal preferences to choose material modeling, in order to find their own shower room.
