About Polished Brass:
PVD, also known as physical vapor deposition, is a metal finishing process that greatly increases the durability and wear resistance of standard brass finishes on
plumbing fixtures. Independent test laboratories have determined PVD polished brass to be up to 23 times more abrasion-resistant compared to chrome plating–the previous industry standard. Unsurpassed by any other finish, it will certainly add a touch of rich elegance to any bathroom.

Vintage excellence meets contemporary charm throughout the Victorian Collection. The distinct characteristic of classical European design creates the perfect balance between the beauty of antiquated design and the internal durability of modern construction. Cultivate the old style aura and its lasting durability within your own home with other Victorian products.
Info you Should Know:
Q: What is PVD?
A: PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) is a molecular process by which a faucet is finished with a uniform layer of deposited metals, metal alloys or metal nitrides and oxides. The resulting finish is a molecular bonded finish that has become part of your faucet rather than a “dipped” or spray-coated faucet. The process is carried out in a large vacuum chamber (.013 atmospheres).
The faucets are placed into the evacuated chamber while an inert gas such as argon is backfilled and ionized.This cleans and prepares the parts for the metal deposition process. A metal is introduced to a high current, low voltage electrical arc resulting in gaseous and ionized metal that is then accelerated at high energy and introduced to the chamber with inert or reactive gases.
The different mixtures of gases will react with the deposited metal resulting in various colors we see on faucets. For instance, zirconium and nitrogen are used to make the popular polished brass we see on most door handles and faucets.
Q: What are the maintenance tips on PVD coated and lacquered coated products?
A: Use only mild soap and warm water to clean your faucet as often as possible. Do not use harsh chemical, acid-based detergents, abrasive cleaners, steel wool polishes or scouring cleaners and any S.O.S. pads. These will dull the finish and void your warranty.
Q: How do I remove mineral deposits from my shower head?
A: Remove the shower head and soak for 30-45 minutes in a 50-50 solution of warm water and vinegar.
