Copper is used in wires and cables to transmit power and information, in plumbing systems for potable water, and in products with architectural and industrial applications like air-conditioning units.
Due to copper’s antimicrobial properties, copper and copper alloy products can be used to
eliminate pathogens and reduce the spread of diseases.
Copper is one of the most recycled of all metals. Virtually all products made from copper can be recycled and recycled copper loses none of its chemical or physical properties. It is an abundant resource which can be recycled over and over again
Copper can improve the efficiency of energy production and distribution systems.
Copper’s chemical, physical and aesthetic properties make it a material of choice in a wide range of domestic, industrial and high technology applications.
