Copper is a soft, ductile reddish-gold metal that is most famous for its thermal and electrical conductivity. Copper is one of the few metals that can occur in nature in a directly usable metallic form (native metals).



What is it used for

Copper is one of the oldest metals ever used and has been one of the important materials in the development of civilization. Today, the vast majority of copper is used in electrical equipment such as wiring and motors. It is also used in construction (roofing and plumbing), and industrial machinery, such as heat exchangers.
