Copper and copper alloys offer an exceptionally wide range of properties to designers and manufacturers.
Copper offers the best electrical conductivity of any metal (except silver, which would be prohibitively expensive for common applications). It is also inherently antimicrobial, meaning it will rapidly eliminate disease-causing germs that settle on its surface.
When alloyed with other metals, copper can also provide excellent corrosion resistance both in air and water, superb durability and malleability, and a wide range of colours to suit different aesthetic requirements. The red metal is ideally suited for hand hammered copper applications, and has made numerous design festival showings.
An important consideration for any designer, architect or manufacturer when selecting materials is recyclability, and all copper alloy is fully recyclable, without loss of properties.
We offer support with choosing the optimum combination of properties for a specific application or copper design, as well as advising on the most appropriate manufacturing processes.
