Don't know if you noticed, in the life most the toilet of we use is made of ceramic, the mystery?
This is from the toilet itself.
A toilet need to balance the following three functions: (1) it is a water machine.
(2) it must be waterproof, clean and health.
(3) it must be strong enough.
So, we'll look at those modern commonly used materials, analyze the material of them as a toilet.
Material 1: plastic plastic materials on behalf of the modern science and technology, we basically most of the articles for daily use is inseparable from the plastic, the plastic on the waterproof performance is very good at the same time, the plastic can be used to make toilet?
The answer is no.
Plastic goods to make this kind of material if need, usually using extrusion or injection molds, burning process is relatively complex, but the toilet itself contains water tanks, valves, drainage pipe and so on, if want to use plastic to make such a fine model, the cost will be quite considerable.
In addition, the plastic is not so good in terms of durability, often subjected to high pressure, very easy to cause deformation, once the internal components of the deformation will be easy to distort or break, affect the user experience.
2: stainless steel stainless steel is a different life common materials, such as stainless steel, etc. , stainless steel not only strong, and the production process is not complicated, then it will be as the material of the toilet?
The answer is still no.
Stainless steel were not rust, but is not rust, if encounter the chloride ion or soak in water for a long time, also can appear rusty.
But the toilet itself is to have a water seal, we daily use tap water, because of the need of disinfection will exist a certain amount of chloride ion, stainless steel long-term contact with water can easily lead to rust.
In addition, the stainless steel itself is sensitive to temperature changes, summer may not have too big problem, but in winter is likely to give you fart fart to freeze, resulting in a very bad user experience.
Other materials and some other common materials, is also not suitable for as the material of the toilet.
For example: wood waterproof ability is poor, easy to crack;
Stone material surface holes, bacteria, heavy volume at the same time;
Glass production process is complex, and at the same time easy to crack and so on.
A toilet, so the production is really finding no other way than to ceramic material.
Ceramic toilet benefits: (1) ceramic surface is smooth, beautiful shape (2) the quality of a material is solid, good compressive ability, can withstand the human body and sit on it for a long time (3) the second ceramic density high, bibulous rate is low, the surface of the glaze can have very good waterproof and activity (4) at the same time is not easy to hang dirty, easy to clean (5) has a good thermal performance, but also a powerful ability to resist corrosion.
