As a metal, the most distinctive feature of copper is that it is a heat and electricity conductor

In addition, its easy formability and low cost of acquisition make it a field of use in different industries. Due to these superior physical and chemical properties there is a widespread use and consumption area for it in the industry. Copper, which has a red color, is a metal used due to with its electrical conductivity in the electrical and electronics industry, with its thermal conductivity feature in cooling systems and with its stainless feature as a coating material in the construction and building sector. Copper, an important metal throughout human history, is still seen as the basic raw material of many industrial sectors and preserves its value. We can list the sectors where copper use is more common as follows; Electric and electronic industry, Construction and building industry, Transportation industry, Industrial equipment, Chemical industry, Jewelery, Paint industry, Touristic goods.
