Uses for Copper
Copper is utilized in different applications, such as:
• Construction – Copper does not react with water and is known for its malleability and ductility, making it one of the most used materials in the construction industry. This commonly includes being used for cladding, roofing, and plumbing. Lightning rods in most homes also use copper, as the metal has proven to be efficient in helping divert natural lightning from striking the overall structure.
Lightweight yet very durable, copper is also applied on isolated structures. This includes chairs, tables, counters, sinks, bathtubs, and heating cylinders. When pigmented, copper can also be used for sculptures, statues and decorative art.
• Electrical Applications – Almost half the copper produced in the metal industry is used for electrical applications. Its core functions are transmission of electricity and power generation. When properly set, it is one of the safest and most efficient ways to produce electricity.
Due to its conductive properties, copper is also frequently used in wiring, circuitry, and microprocessors. With a heat dissipation capacity that is superior to that of aluminum, copper is also ideally used as heat sinks in modern computer systems.
