For your peace of mind, at Faucet Strommen we produce all components in contact with drinking water from UltraBrass. We have pioneered the use of this special lead free copper alloy being unique for its health benefits.
Despite the Australian compliance standards allowing for small amounts of lead in brass (4-6%), we stepped ahead with UltraBrass to eliminate this harmful metal. A report by health experts states, Children younger than 6 years are especially vulnerable to lead poisoning, which can severely affect mental and physical development.
UltraBrass is also bismuth free. Whilst the exposure to small amounts of bismuth may not be harmful, bismuth poisoning can cause pain, fever and bone weakness.
UltraBrass is a copper alloy and this is what gives it powers over bacteria. Copper has antimicrobial properties and provides a level of protection against bacteria that can form in plumbing systems known as OPPP [opportunistic premise plumbing pathogens]. OPPP’s present an emerging waterborne disease problem3 and affects homes and hospitals.
Bacteria, yeasts and viruses are rapidly killed on metallic copper surfaces3 when the cell walls are attacked by Cuprous Oxide (Cu2O). This makes copper alloys like UltraBrass specially effective in reducing the build up of pathogens in potable water and providing a level of protection for you and your family.
When compared with Stainless Steel, Brass displays far superior antimicrobial properties. Studies via fluorescence microscopy show the results of bacterial colonisation on brass vs other materials after a 20 hour period. (See table alongside)
Whilst Stainless Steel is ideal for certain applications, tests to AS/NZS 4020 have shown up inconsistences and cases of alloy break down and nickel leaching. We have chosen to manufacture parts in contact with drinking water from the more costly and superior UltraBrass.

Zirnium DMF™ – Finishes at the Pinnacle
Nothing can challenge Zirnium DMF finishes for durability, texture and pure beauty. From the deep Brushed Carbon to the subtle Discovery Bronze our rich palette of unique finishes gives scope for expression across our entire collection.
Direct Molecular Fusion (DMF) is the ultimate architectural finish and unrivalled in the industry. This process carried out at Faucet Strommen’s factory in Australia employs specialised equipment and unique ingredients. Our inhouse engineers have developed the process over years in conjunction with chemists and experts from Europe.
This finish is so hard and tough, and created with such robust processes, that it is almost impossible to scratch, displaying attributes that cannot be compared with traditional finishes.
In the interests of the environment, we have exploited advances in sub layer application, dry process technology and closed loop recycling to ensure the most sustainable process.
Zirnium DMF, like all Faucet Strommen finishes, is backed by the Faucet Strommen 40 year finish warranty.
