Copper

Copper and its alloys have been used widely for thousands of years. Copper is well desired for its superb electrical properties, it is the second most conductive element just after Silver which is much more expensive to utilize.

Copper minerals can be mined and are the raw materials for producing copper.

Copper raw materials go through a series of production processes. Typical production starts off by melting of the raw materials in a melting furnace, followed by electro-refinement, casting, milling, rolling, annealing, pickling, finishing and degreasing.

Copper can also be tempered to produce different grades of hardness.

CHARACTERISTICS

The general appearance of Copper when fresh is pinkish or peachy but becomes reddish orange or brownish when a thin layer of tarnish (includes oxide) forms. Unalloyed Copper is very soft and ductile making it hard to process or machine but cold working can be done to further improve the mechanical properties. Common attributes include superb electrical conductivity, ductility, malleability, excellent corrosion resistance, weldability and good brazing or soldering properties.
