Every faucet and bath system created by Isenberg undergoes a chrome plating technique that greatly enhances durability of the product. The chrome finish is so fine that it ages very slowly. With bare minimum care, this finish can even serve you a lifetime.
In this process, first a base coating of electroplated nickel is first applied, followed by a thin coating of electroplated chromium. The chrome layer is deposited from a plating bath containing certain additives that improve corrosion resistance.
The chrome layers are impossibly thin, less than the thickness of a human hair.
After plating, various components of the faucet are installed with digital precision. This is also a computerized process and ensures the faucet is solid both on the outside and the inside. The faucet and the necessary components are stored for a while so that they ‘set’, and soon, they are sent to the assembly line.
The spout, if separate, is first installed, followed by the ceramic cartridge and control lever. During the assembly process, these are two very crucial points that you need to know:
1. Our faucets have ceramic-disc cartridges from Kerox Fluhs and Sedal, leaders in their space with products that are much more durable than other systems. Ceramic discs within our cartridges seamlessly intertwine and ensure that water-mixing is precise.
2. After the cartridge is fixed, next comes the Neoperl aerator that is designed to improve your water experience by adding air bubbles to water droplets. This ensures that the volume of water feels luxurious and there is no splash.
Tested To Test Time And The Elements
Each faucet is then put under the most rigorous tests to ensure continued seamless usage for many years. Toxicologists review the material formulations to determine potential contaminants that may extract from the faucet and into the drinking water. Product samples are randomly selected for testing at Isenberg laboratories.
Independent Quality Control teams look at faucets after every stage of manufacture. From the brass foundation to the polished product to the final assembly, independent experts take a critical look at the products. Anything that fails their test is promptly sent back.
These independent experts function as teams that work on incentives. It simply means the more faults they find at every stage of production, the more they earn. This ensures nothing of an Isenberg product is left to chance.
State-of-the-art test machinery turns faucet handles on and off at least 200,000 times. The faucets are also put through an unforgiving water and air testing cycle so as to ensure the product performance remains perfect throughout its lifetime.
Products are sent out to the market only after the test faucets pass these series of trials. Which is why, when you buy an Isenberg product, you will not need another faucet and bathing system for a long, long time.
