The Many Uses of Coppper

In this section you will find commonly used, as well as innovative and lesser known applications of copper materials.  Through the varied  examples, we hope to show the many and diverse properties and application possibilities that copper, copper alloys and composites have to offer.  Site uses are invited to apply and customise the solutions and ideas found here to their own needs.

If you do not find a solution in alloys, consider the unique properties of composites.  For example, perhaps you wish to have the thermal conductivity of pure copper, but need to use it at a high temperature which requires hardness? Or, perhaps you need an electric conductor with a significantly higher tensile strength, but lower conductivity losses than if they were connected to copper -silver alloys.  These are just two of many examples of the potential solutions copper, alloys and composites can prodive.
