copper and copper alloys - brass and bronze
Copper is a resistant and ductile metal with excellent thermal and electrical conductivity and good corrosion resistance. It sustains its mechanical and electrical properties at low temperatures. Therefore, copper and its alloys are used in a very broad list of final products: electric power lines, cookware, electrical wiring and busbars, highly conductive wires, electrodes, heat exchangers, plumbing, heating, refrigeration and cooling air conditioning systems. Last but not least, copper is widely employed in architectural design and construction decorations.
