Copper is one of the few metals to naturally occur as an un-compounded mineral, it is a pure metal and It is used as a component of many various alloys such as bronze and brass and it is used in small quantities in many other alloys including some Aluminum alloys and cor-ten weathering steel. Copper is malleable and ductile, it is a good conductor of heat and, when pure, is a very good conductor of electricity. It is used widely for applications ranging from: piping and electronics, electricity cables, as wire or on printed circuits; to architecture, roofing, household products, such as cookware and biomedical applications and as fermentation vessels in breweries.
Copper is corrosion resistant. Hot or cold working is possible. Cold working increases the hardness and strength and requires frequent annealing. Copper can be easily hard and soft soldered.
