About Basic Copper

At Basic Copper we are dedicated to providing premium copper for a variety of purposes including uses in arts & crafts, counter tops, bar tops, backsplashes, electrical applications, home construction, manufacturing, rfi shielding, and more! We offer copper foil and copper sheets in a variety of thicknesses and sizes. All of our copper is premium copper alloy 110 (99.9% pure copper) manufactured to the specifications of ASTM-B152, dead soft-annealed with a bare commercial finish--standard thickness tolerances apply to ASTM-B248. We are a Better Business Bureau Accredited business.

We appreciate your business and hope that you will find exactly what you need. If you are uncertain about the thickness you are looking for or what to expect from the product you are ordering, please ask questions! If you would like a small sample of the copper please email us. We will send very small samples free of charge as long as supplies allow!

The copper you receive may have sharp edges, please handle with care! In addition, the copper has been treated at the mill with a light coating of protective oil to slow down the oxidation process. It can be removed with a light buffing.
