Touchless Faucets Finishing Trends
Resistant to rust and corrosion, chrome is both cost effective and easy to clean.
The graceful chrome-plated finish is created through electroplating, which applies a liquid metal coating through electro deposition.
As the deposited metal fuses to the base material, the refined and durable finish created is Stern’s collection default.
Powder coating is a finishing process in which a coating is applied electrostatically to a surface as a dry powder before heat is used to finalize the coating.
The powder forms chemical bonds in the process, creating a flexible, durable finish that is highly resistant to corrosion, flaking, and scratching.
Exceptionally versatile and easy to clean, powder coating does not show dirt, water spots, or fingerprints.
Stainless Steel AISI 316
Stainless steel faucets do not need finishing. The material itself is the finish and it offers corrosion resistance, formability, strength, and easy maintenance.
Combining elegant design with vandal resistant features, now more resilient than ever, our Stainless Steel AISI 316 series is long lasting even under the harshest conditions.
PVD coating (physical vapor deposition) is the process in which a solid material is vaporized in a vacuum and deposited onto the surface of the fixture.
These compound materials are deposited atom by atom, forming a thin, bonded, metal surface layer that greatly improves appearance and durability.
