Resource Library

data base

European Copper Institute and its network of eleven Copper Centres throughout Europe provide a copper publications list – a range of resources in support of the correct and efficient use of copper and copper alloys for major applications.

    Technical Information on Materials Intended for Use with Food
    alloys, drinking water, health, nutrition, safety
    This fact sheet provides technical information on the use of copper and its alloys for food contact materials, including an overview of the latest European legislation.
    Copper Busbars - Guidance for Design and Installation
    electrical, conductivity , alloys
    Busbars are used within electrical installations for distributing power from a supply point to a number of output circuits. This new edition of our long-standing publication provides the information needed to design efficient, economic and reliable busbar systems.
    New Technologies Make Commercial Scale Copper Rotor Die-Casting Viable
    alloys, conductivity , fabricator, rotor, rotor motor
    Copper is an excellent material to use for rotors due to its high conductivity. Copper’s conductivity is rated at 57 Ms/m, which is significantly higher than that of aluminium (37 Ms/m). This makes copper the material of choice for a number of induction motor applications worldwide.
    Curious about copper
    Industry, applications, corporate, communications, alloys
    This publication looks into the intriguing world of copper and reveals how one of the world's most reusable resource plays a vital role in enabling many aspects of our lives.
    Webcast "Innovation in aquaculture using copper based alloys"
    fish farming cages, alloys
    Copper Alloys used in Marine Applications
    alloys, antifouling, fish farming cages
    The aim of this publication is to provide engineers with an appreciation of copper alloys commonly used in marine applications. It will provide an overview of the range of alloys and their properties, and give references and sources for further information.
    Fact sheet for tradeshows on Aquaculture
    fish farming cages, antifouling, alloys
    Copper alloys in marine aquaculture - Increasing productivity, Sustaining the future.
    Copper-Zinc Alloys for use in Marine Aquaculture
    alloys, antifouling, fish farming cages
    Copper-zinc Ultra Resistant (UR) properties make it an ideal choice for aquaculture cages. Upon prolonged exposure to seawater, it forms an adherent protective oxide layer which naturally inhibits the attachment of fouling organisms, whilst increasing water flow and reducing opportunities for parasites and pathogens to grow and infect fish.
