Copper is humaity’s oldest metal, dating back some 12,000 years. All of the great civilizations of the past, used copper and copper alloys (principally bronze and later brass) for both decorative and utilitarian purposes. Copper was used for military purposes, artistic applications such as church bells and statuary, tools and numerous other functional objects. However, it was the Industrial revolution that brought about a tremendous change in the production and consumption of copper and copper alloys.

Copper’s unique combinations of mechanical and physical properties and excellent corrosion and wear resistance attributes have contributed toward copper and its alloys being the material of choice for building construction (e.g. plumbing, wiring and roofing), but have also led to the use of copper in many demanding engineering applications in the marine, automotive, chemical and electronics industries.
