Copper a noble metal!
Technically pure, unalloyed copper has the famous "copper red" color. The electrical conductivity is more than 1 ½ times as high as that of aluminum and about 8 times as high as that of steel. The thermal conductivity is directly related to the electrical conductivity. Highly conductive metals are also highly thermally conductive. It is produced in different, tailored to the application areas of varieties.
Copper is in pure or alloyed form an equally everyday material such as high-tech support. The versatility of copper and its alloys are used in almost all areas of daily life. Due to the high electrical conductivity of copper is no longer an indispensable part of the electrical industry. Large parts of the industry of transport, energy technology, crafts, as well as artists or service providers use copper materials in a wide variety.
