Signs Of The Coating Quality Fittings

Durability and appearance of the plumbing is primarily determined by the properties of products. Consider the basic plumbing equipment from this point of view. 1. Bath. Total sales in the lead-iron bath.

They enamel applied in several layers, so that its thickness is 2-3 times greater than that of coating the steel bath. However, this is not a virtue: the thicker protective layer, the less impact resistance. Quality Steel Bath determine the mass – if it does not weigh over 20 kg, then, is made of thin steel and will deform. Quality products have a mass of 30-50 kg. Material from which made acrylic bathtubs, in fact, is one variety of plastics. So, it is also easy to scratch, like most plastic items. The newest material for the manufacture of baths – the quarks.

On the reliability of his evidence that many manufacturers use it to produce luxury bathrooms with premium. Also recently become more popular bath of artificial stone (Corian) and injection of marble. 2. Mixer. Today, the most extended chrome coating mixers, which are produced by electroplating. Service life and property of coverage is determined by its quality and technology of its application. For example, multi-layer coating grohe faucets from the world's leading manufacturer of sanitary fittings has a thickness of only a fraction of a micron, but it is characterized by extreme hardness and stability, as well as the dazzling brilliance. A this is achieved by applying proprietary technology grohe StarLight : first product electroplate layers of copper and nickel, to produce a perfectly smooth and nonporous surface that is then applied a layer of chromium thickness is 500 times smaller than a human hair. Thus obtained coverage not only durable, but also resistant to the appearance of lime and has a soil-repellent properties. 3. Washbasin, bidet and toilet. The most common material is ceramic: earthenware and porcelain. Earthenware is porous, so that its surface is characterized by high water absorption, because of what may become rough and start to collect dirt, covered with cracks. Porcelain water practically does not absorb. However, any ceramics – a relatively fragile material. Recently, more and more in vogue glass washbasins. Glass unusually resistant to any material, easy to clean and almost no scratches. In addition, when a large thickness, it is much stronger than ceramic. Finally, there are sinks, toilets and bidets from composite materials: acrylic with mineral additives and artificial stone. But their properties we have discussed above.

Powder Coating

Powder coatings are applied in the early 50's. in the U.S. and since then the need for these materials is constantly increasing. To date, powder coating – best method for obtaining protective and decorative coatings a variety of materials and products. The application of powder coating is obtained by a uniform, durable, high quality coating with high mechanical, chemical and protective properties. Powder paint is a fast-growing technology worldwide. Powder coating gives the industrial manufacturers to produce the most durable, economical and environmentally friendly coatings and manufactured products, as consequence, the powder coating is constantly growing demand. What are the advantages of powder coating? 1.When poproshkovoy color does not require solvents.

In the film deposited by liquid technology, with intensive removal solvents form pores that cause the deterioration of the adhesion and premature appearance podplenochnoy corrosion. In the powder coating is less shrinkage and porosity of the film. Savings on the cost of solvents, which in liquid paints only play the role of media for film forming. 2.Uluchshenie sanitary conditions. The technology of powder coating is environmentally friendly. Nearly 100% of consumables (ink) transferred to the product.

The concentration of volatile compounds released from paints in the polymerization process does not reach the maximum allowable concentrations, even within the oven curing. 3. coating provides a low percentage of waste. Powder coating can be recycled and reused, so recycling of powder is very high, losses of powder coatings is 1-4%, in contrast to liquid paints (40%) on setup, equipped with good facilities for processing, with efficiency of 96-98%.
