Selection of bathroom basins and introduction of common materials
In recent years, due to the increasing demand for bathroom decoration, basins of various materials and styles have become more and more popular among consumers. They are an integral part of the washbasin. Let’s take a closer look. .
How to choose a small basin in the bathroom
1. Use the contrast method to see the brightness of the ceramic basin
Products with high brightness index use high-quality glazed materials and very good glazing technology, which have good reflectivity to light and uniformity, so that the visual effect is good and the product appears to be of high quality. When choosing, you can compare and observe products of different brands together, and it is easy to judge high-quality products. Water absorption index means that ceramic products have a certain ability to absorb and penetrate water. The lower the water absorption, the better. If water is sucked into the ceramic, the ceramic will expand to a certain extent, which will easily cause the glaze on the ceramic surface to crack due to swelling.
2. See whether the glass basin has been tempered or strengthened
The glass basin must be tempered, but it is difficult to judge with the naked eye whether it has been tempered, so for manufacturers It is said that it is a tempered glass basin, you can directly ask the salesperson to use a blunt tool to do a tap test. If the opponent is afraid to knock, it is probably not tempered glass. However, one of the characteristics of tempered glass is that the corners are very fragile due to stress concentration, and it is easy to cause the entire product to be completely broken after accidental collision.
Common materials for washbasins in bathroom
Stainless steel washbasin: Stainless steel washbasins are relatively less used at home, and are generally used In public places such as shopping malls and hotels. It is stylish in shape, easy to clean, high in strength, and strong in anti-fouling ability. However, due to the simplification of the shape, it is not easy to match with bathroom furniture. The polished stainless steel matches the modern electroplated faucet perfectly, but the surface of the mirror is easy to scratch. Therefore, for users with a large amount, you may wish to buy polished stainless steel.
Artificial stone basin: Artificial stone powder is added with color and resin to create a smooth material like natural marble, but harder and stain-resistant, and there are more styles to choose from. It has strong anti-shock ability, is not easy to be polluted, and is not easy to be damaged. It can be matched with different styles of bathroom furniture and is relatively widely used. It is not resistant to high temperature, it is easy to be stained with oil, it is not easy to clean, and its shape is relatively simple.
Ceramic washbasin: Ceramic washbasin is currently the most commonly used material. Because it is clean white, it can be matched with any bathroom decoration style. When consumers choose ceramic basins, they should first pay attention to the smoothness and brightness of their glaze. Generally high-quality ceramic basins are pure white, with good finish and excellent brightness. You can carefully observe the ceramic surface under sufficient light, and observe from multiple angles whether the glaze has stains, pinholes, blisters, blisters and other defects. Secondly, feel the feel. The surface of a good ceramic product has a smooth and delicate surface with no unevenness. You can also touch the back of the basin. A reliable basin should have a “sandy” feel.
Glass basin: Tempered glass is also a common basin material nowadays. Glass has extremely high hardness, so it is scratch-resistant and scratch-resistant. In addition, the glass has excellent coloring properties and inherent reflection ability, which can make the bathroom look more crystal clear.
In addition to our common wash basins are divided into above and under counter basins, there are wall-mounted basins, pedestal basins, etc., but Because they have little relationship with the sink, so I won't introduce them here, and those who are interested can find out on their own.
