Points to note when buying a towel rack

Currently, there are four main types of towel racks on the market: copper, aluminum, stainless steel, and zinc alloy. Each of the four materials has advantages and disadvantages. You can choose the towel rack that suits you according to your personal preferences.

Copper towel rack

Advantages: Copper has good flexibility and is easy to produce in various shapes, so there are many styles. After chrome plating, it will show bright color, or after processing, it will show matte, brushed, bronze color, etc., which is more beautiful.

Disadvantages: expensive, the market price of copper is 60,000 to 70,000 yuan a ton (2007).

Aluminum towel rack

At present, most of the aluminum towel rails seen on the market are sprayed aluminum and alumina. Spraying aluminum directly sprays aluminum oxide powder on the surface of the aluminum towel rail to form a protective layer. Alumina is an aluminum towel rack that reacts with oxygen to form a dense protective film on the surface of the aluminum towel rack. In terms of technology, aluminum oxide is more wear-resistant and corrosion resistant than sprayed aluminum.

Advantages: diverse styles and affordable prices.

Disadvantages: the color is mostly white, lack of selectivity

Stainless steel towel rack

There are many stainless steel labels, including 200, 201, 202…304, 316 and so on. At present, the common ones on the market are mostly 200 and 304. The 200-mark stainless steel contains relatively low chromium and will rust! 304 stainless steel has a chromium content of 18%, has good stability, strong corrosion resistance, and will not rust even in a humid environment for a long time.

Advantages: The towel rack 304 has strong corrosion resistance and the price is cheaper than copper.

Disadvantages: The hardness of stainless steel is very large, the plasticity is relatively poor, the style is less, and the color is relatively single.

Zinc alloy towel rack

At present, zinc alloy towel racks account for a small proportion, mainly in the low-end market.

Advantages: many styles and low prices.

Disadvantages: the strength of zinc alloy is poor.
