Copper is a commonly used basic element. In its purest state, it appears reddish-orange in color. This metal is one of the oldest known to humans on earth; it dates back to at least around 8700 BC. Ancient civilizations such as Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome used it to create various items: jewelry, pottery, and weapons among them. Today, copper plays a huge roll in modern society. From Architectura applications, to electrical wiring, and as a component in high-tech devices, it remains as crucial to modern life as it was thousands of years ago. We at Quality Metals are proud to be the premier copper sheet metal suppliers for countless clients. While copper is known for its beautiful color, generally speaking, we receive requests for functional, rather than aesthetic, copper sheets or plates.
The Appeal of Copper
While some may opt for copper because of its color or sheen, in our business, the focus is on the functional aspects. Copper has much to recommend it to our customers. Its mechanical and chemical properties produce a sheet that features:
- Excellent electrical conductivity
- High thermal conductivity
