Grade: Phosphorus Deoxidised (C106)
Copper sheets, available in various thicknesses.
Copper is a malleable, ductile medium-strength metal that can be easily moulded and shaped. It's a non-magnetic material, and has very high thermal and electrical conductivity.
Copper is a chemical element (Cu) and is one of the few metals that occurs in a directly usable metallic form naturally. Copper has a pinkish-orange colour.
Copper is a non-ferrous metal - non-ferrous metals are metals that do not contain iron in appreciable quantities, this makes them more malleable. They also have lower weight, higher conductivity, non-magnetic properties and more resistance to corrosion compared to ferrous metals. These qualities mean that they are generally more expensive than ferrous metals (such as steel).
Each thickness is sold in different sizes:
- 6" x 1' / 152 x 305mm
- 1' x 1' / 305 x 305mm
- 2' x 1' / 610 x 305mm
" = inch
' = foot
mm = millimetre
