Copper

      

Copper and its alloys are widely used in deep draw and flat stamped products because they have excellent electrical and thermal performance, good resistance to corrosion, high ductility and relatively low cost. Copper is non-magnetic, non-sparking and non-bacterial. Because it is low in the reactivity series, it is slow to corrode. With medium strength and high fatigue resistance, copper and its alloys are primary metals for electrical applications.
