The main parts of this sensor tap are made of chrome plated yellow brass, which will last for a long time without corrosion if it is regularly cleaned.
To be exact, the material is an alloy of copper, iron, nickel, lead, tin, zinc and aluminium called Cu Zn38 Pb2 (CW608N), manufactured following EN 12166.
Such a combination has no surface porosity, no degradation with water and no odour transmission.
Regarding toxicity, lead (Pb) percentage is from 1.6 to 2.5. It is lower than the maximum some countries stablish: 3.5% Italy or 5% France. Unlike cheaper faucets that have less copper and more lead, Giampieri gives preference to health.
If you are interested in other materials, the same tap can be manufactured with satin AISI 316 stainless steel with a 30% price increase. Just contact us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (0114 3540047).
