Description of copper
Copper is an orange-coloured material with the chemical symbol Cu. It has a great variety of applications as it is ductile and malleable and has particularly high electrical and thermal conductive properties.
Copper is one of the most commonly used materials in the industrial sector, in particular in general mechanics. Its conductive properties and its technical and chemical characteristics make it a preferred material for the creation of a wide variety of parts. However, it has low mechanical resistance and can easily be deformed. It is therefore important to blend it with other materials to increase its resistance. Copper oxidises naturally in moisture and forms verdigris.
