Flexible, Pliable, and very ductile, Copper is an element with highly thermal and electrical conductivity. Copper can be used as material in construction, as a heat and electrical conductor, and a component of sterling silver, cupronickel, and constantan to make jewelry, marine machines, and temperature measurement devices, respectively. Because of its deluxe and artistic qualities, Copper is considered one of the top-class and high-priced metal cladding materials in the industry. It is a long-term cladding solution that has a high cost-efficiency rate with minimal maintenance.
High Thermal and Electrical Conductivity
Copper is an excellent heat conductor. It allows heat to pass quickly from one end to another. The same applies for electricity and is primarily the reason why copper ducts are being used in electrical wires.
Malleability and Style
Copper is highly malleable, flexible, and ductile. It can be stretched, molded, twisted, curled, and formed into intricate and elaborate surfaces without the danger of breaking easily. Compared to other materials, copper is easier to install and remove because of its lightweight quality. One of Copper’s beautiful qualities is its ability to change color across time – from orange to green, to deep brown and sometimes, black. It offers depth to its aesthetics and gives another dimension to its facade.
Copper is a noble metal and contains very little iron. It is for this reason that it is able to resist oxidation and corrosion. Although it evades corrosion, copper surfaces tend to form a green film called “Patina” over a period of time. But, do not worry, Patina is removable by making and rubbing a salt and vinegar paste over the surface.
Biostacity is one of Copper’s most distinct characteristics. It has the capability to deter the growth and propagation of unwanted organisms. Furthermore, Copper is naturally antimicrobial as it kills 99.9% of microorganisms that touch its surface in a very short period of time.
Copper is an important part of renewable energy systems because it is able to generate power from multiple sources – hydro, solar, and wind energy. Less energy is needed to produce electricity with copper usage, which helps in the reduction of the amount of CO2 emissions. More and more copper is being utilized in renewable energy systems to ensure both efficiency and effectiveness. It is also one of the most sustainable materials because its quality does not diminish and is not compromised even after recycling. Copper is 100% recyclable so it is very eco-friendly!
All in all, Copper is clearly one of the ideal materials to use for cladding and roofing. Partnered with a well-made design and excellent building techniques, copper cladding is very cost-efficient in the long run. You do not only get durability but also sustainability and a classic and luxurious look that lasts.
