Copper is a chemical element with symbol Cu and atomic number 29. Copper is a ductile metal with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. Pure copper is soft and malleable; a freshly exposed surface has a reddish-orange color. Copper metal is used as a conductor of heat and electricity, a building material, and a constituent of various metal alloys.
The major applications of copper are in electrical wires (60%), roofing and plumbing (20%) and industrial machinery (15%). Copper is mostly used as a pure metal, but when a higher hardness is required it is combined with other elements to make an alloy (5% of total use) such as brass and bronze.
We presently offer Copper Metal in powder form to welding electrode manufacturers and Powder Part Manufacturers.
