Copper
Copper conducts heat well and resists corrosion and is used worldwide in pipes and tubing to distribute both hot and cold fluids. Pure copper (greater than 99.95%) is called electrolytic copper (EC). Copper is a great conductor of electricity and even small amounts of impurities in copper can seriously reduce its ability to conduct electricity. Copper is also a major player in various other applications such as cables, computers, coins, radiators and energy. Alloys are many, the most common ones being brass (primarily with zinc) and bronze (primarily with tin).
 
Advantages 
  • Excellent electrical and thermal conductor
  • Malleable and ductile - good for bending copper pipes into shapes
  • Attractive look
  • Very durable
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Antibacterial
  • Easily joined
  • Tough
  • Non-magnetic
  • Easy to alloy
  • Recyclable
  • Catalytic.
 
Disadvantages
  • Expensive
  • Not very strong - can be bent and broken easily
  • Tarnishes and can corrode quickly if left exposed to the air
