A shiny chrome plated faucet is common in scores of kitchens today. Chrome is quite durable but can be scratched with a heavy-duty scouring pad. If you enjoy the look of chrome, use care when cleaning your faucet.
But what are you really getting when you pay mega dollars towards a shiny new kitchen faucet? Chances are all you're actually receiving is less money to use on the rest of your kitchen improvement. A leading consumer reports organization performed in-depth evaluations on kitchen faucets to get the truth. In a unanticipated turn of events, their tests exposed that despite the marketing advertisement, faucet prices do not correlate with performance. In this situation, you don't always end up with what you pay for!
Time for chemistry class. Faucet exteriors are assaulted with charged metal atoms. These particles bond chemically to the surface of the base metal by a procedure called physical vapor deposition, or PVD. The issue is that different metals have an effect on assorted finishes. Even nickel and bronze. The evaluation team discovered that faucets with PVD finishes stood strong despite their honest attempts to scratch and mar them. PVD finishes are not 100% bullet proof however and heavy-duty corrosives (i.e. drain cleaner) can lightly discolor them.
