We are the best exporter of copper in all over the world.
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
- As a result of its excellent electrical conductivity, copper’s most common use is in electrical equipment such as wiring and motors.
- Because it corrodes slowly, copper is used in roofing, guttering, and as rainspouts on buildings.
- It is also used in plumbing and in cookware and cooking utensils.
- Commercially important alloys such as brass and bronze are made with copper and other metals.
- Gun metals and American coins are copper alloys.
- 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).
