Thank you for your question, Sarah! Delta Faucet Company takes extreme pride in the quality of its products, and strives daily to meet and exceed the expectations of our customers. Our shower heads and hand showers are composed of a proprietary mixture of both metallic and non-metallic components to ensure a long lasting, high quality product, while maintaining safety control for the various temperatures of water that go through the product. With any shower head or hand shower, made by us or another company, the part of the faucet that you would grab onto is typically made of a plastic or a plastic-mixture, as metal is heavier, susceptible to corrosion and retains heat. We do not have a complete breakdown of the materials used on all models, however, the shower head and tub spout are non-metallic, all other parts of the trim are composed of brass. All of our products are built to last and come with a lifetime warranty.
Best regards, Edward
