Corrosion resistant and versatile
Thanks to copper’s exceptional durability and resistance to corrosion it is used in many inhospitable environments where material integrity is critical. Copper is one of the most versatile materials on the planet as it can be used and re-used repeatedly without losing its properties, meaning it can provide infinite uses over infinite lifecycles.
It wouldn’t however be without its many attractive properties that copper would be such a favourable material. It offers hard to rival electrical and thermal conductivity, is corrosion resistant, with antibacterial and anti-microbial benefits. It is a tough yet malleable metal which can easily be joined, recycled and made into alloys, which enables a multitude of further benefits and uses.
