    What are the benefits of brass tapware?

    Brass tapware offers rust resistance and can be coated with a chrome, white chrome, gold, gun metal grey or black finish. Brass taps in Australia and New Zealand are required to be dezincification resistant brass or DR brass, a copper alloy with a zinc content of more than 37%. This helps against severe corrosion when water is very highly chlorinated or high in oxygen and carbon dioxide.

  5. How PVD technology is revolutionising the bathroom and kitchen industry
    How PVD technology is revolutionising the bathroom and kitchen industry

    Advancements in PVD processing offer the best of both worlds – great colour choice and long-lasting durability.

     

    ---How PVD technology is revolutionising the bathroom and kitchen industry

    Aquaperla is embracing new technologies in decorative finishes – inspired by worldwide colour trends emerging at international design shows. Physical Vapour Deposition – or PVD coating – is available in Aquaperla’s latest series of tapware, showers, accessories and heated towel rails. This allows customers to customise and combine these finishes with products in a variety of ways to suit individual needs and style preferences.

     

    --What is PVD technology?

    PVD stands for Physical Vapour Deposition. This is a coating technique used to deposit a thin film (a few microns thick) on the surface of bathroom, kitchen and laundry products such as tapware, showers, heated towel rails and accessories.

     

    --Why is PVD regarded as the ultimate coating for bathroom, kitchen and laundry products?

    PVD coating provides superior durability and resistance to abrasions, tarnishing, scratching and corrosion. PVD technology is also resistant to UV radiation and discolouration.

     

    --What is the difference between electroplated products and PVD products?

    PVD coatings are generally harder and more corrosion resistant than coatings applied by the electroplating process. Most coatings have high temperature and good impact strength, superior abrasion resistance and are so durable that protective topcoats are often not required.

     

    --What is the difference between powdercoat finishes and PVD products?

    The colour in an Aquaperla PVD finish is molecularly bonded to the tapware, becoming one with the metal itself. Powdercoat finishes are baked onto the tapware, meaning they wear quicker and are more prone to chipping, peeling and scratching.

     

    --Do PVD coatings offer a wide colour choice?

    Absolutely. PVD coatings offer a rich selection of beautiful colours and popular textured finishes such as brushed gold, polished bright, bronzed and aged. Advancements in PVD processing offer the best of both worlds – great colour choice and long-lasting durability.
