Copper is one of the most versatile metals for industrial, commercial, and craft applications because of its thermal and electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance, machinability, and exceptional ductility. It also can be welded, soldered, brazed, or plated.
Some common examples of copper applications include machining electrical components from round bar, cutting custom architectural accents from plate, and producing copper sheet for kitchen backsplashes and surfaces. Copper use has also been increasing in popularity in many creative applications. Items such as copper cups designed for authentic Moscow mules are often featured on popular e-commerce websites like Etsy.
