Copper and copper alloys have a wide range of properties available to a designer. These include the best electrical conductivity of any metal, excellent corrosion resistance in the atmosphere and water, a wide range of colours giving aesthetic appeal and excellent ductility. CDA is able to assist designers in choosing the optimum combination of properties for a specific application as well as advising on the most appropriate manufacturing process.
An important consideration for any designer when selecting materials is recyclability; all copper alloys are fully recyclable, without loss of properties.
