Copper

  • COPPER:-

We are the best exporter of copper in all over the world.

  • Characteristics:

Copper is a reddish orange, soft metal that takes on a bright metallic luster.

It is malleable, ductile, and an excellent conductor of heat and electricity – only silver has a higher electrical conductivity than copper.

Copper surfaces exposed to air gradually tarnish to a dull, brownish color.

If water and air are present, copper will slowly corrode to form the carbonate verdigris often seen on roofs and statues.

Uses of Copper

  1. As a result of its excellent electrical conductivity, copper’s most common use is in electrical equipment such as wiring and motors.
  2. Because it corrodes slowly, copper is used in roofing, guttering, and as rainspouts on buildings.
  3. It is also used in plumbing and in cookware and cooking utensils.
  4. Commercially important alloys such as brass and bronze are made with copper and other metals.
  5. Gun metals and American coins are copper alloys.
  6. Copper sulfate is used as a fungicide and as an algicide in rivers, lakes and ponds.

Copper oxide in Fehling’s solution is widely used in tests for the presence of monosaccharides (simple sugars).
