Copper sheet is a very workable and malleable form of metal, high in electrical and thermal conductivity, and provides excellent corrosion resistance. A beautiful and versatile metal, copper has been utilized for thousands of years. Historically, it served as a favorite choice in making tools, vessels, and sculptures. Copper is also known for its beautiful patinas. When exposed, unsealed, to an outdoor environment, copper begins to oxidize. This exposure creates beautiful color variations in the form of a patina. The coloring of the patina will change and develop character over time while serving to protect the metal from deterioration. People will also create a patina quickly with the use of chemical mixtures that speed the process up and allow a patina to develop without outdoor exposure. Copper sheets can also be hammered, tooled, or embossed for added texture and decorative or functional appeal and come in many thicknesses from very thin copper foil to thick copper plate. It also comes in many alloys that blend other metals with copper. At Basic Copper, we sell pure copper -C110 (other alloys and tempers available upon request). This high purity provides the premium quality needed for projects and applications in a wide range of industries and uses. We take pride in providing the best material.
