Not only is copper a great electrical conductor, but it’s flexible and less oxidative than other metals (meaning it doesn’t rust). Copper wires are commonly found in household electronics, telephone poles, and cars.
Tubing and Pipes
Copper can be used for tubing and pipes because of its corrosion resistance, formability, and ability to transfer heat. Copper tumbling can be found for uses such as plumbing, air conditioning, refrigeration, fuel gas distributions.
Although less common today, copper has been used in radiators as it’s a thermal efficient product that’s long lasting.
WHY RECYCLE COPPER?
It’s estimated that 32% of the world’s copper consumption comes from recycled copper. Copper is a finite resource that doesn’t degrade or lose chemical properties during the recycling process, making it infinite recyclable.
- Takes 85 % LESS energy to recycle vs mine.
- Diverts copper from the landfill
- Make money– we’ll PAY for your copper
- Minimizes toxins released in the environment.
