Copper Applications


Copper plays exceptional role in industry due to its very valuable properties such as high plasticity and thermal and electrical conductivity. For this reason more than 50% of obtained copper is used in wiring and other electrical products. However, high purity is crucial for maintaining the electrical conductivity, no less than 99.9% of Copper. High thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance make copper useful for producing coolers, heat exchange installations, vacuum tubes, etc. Approximately 30 - 40 % of copper used in alloys, such as brass - and alloy of copper with 0 - 50 % Zinc and bronze, which is any of a broad range of copper alloys, usually with Tin as the main additive, but sometimes with other elements: Beryllium bronzes, Aluminium bronzes, Lead bronzes and so on.

Copper is used also in production of mineral dyes, micro-fertilizers, oxidizing catalysts, as well as in leather industry, fur and silk production.

In medicine Copper is used in antiseptic and astringent eyes remedy, in medications for Phosphorus burns treatment.
