A wide range of extruded copper alloys are commonly used in buildings, for example in angle bars, handrails, balustrades, window frames and so on.
Copper tubes can be admired in a great deal of interior design. The most remarkable examples are radiators, which exploit copper's workability and excellent heat transfer as well as its beauty.
If you heat one end of a piece of copper, the other end will quickly reach the same temperature. Most metals are pretty good conductors; however, copper is one of the best.
No other metals have a range of attractive colours comparable to copper and copper alloys, the red of copper, the gold of the brasses, the chocolate brown of manganese bronzes and the shiny white nickel silvers.
