What is Copper Sheet?
Instantly recognisable by its unique, orangey hue, copper sheet is a distinctive, malleable metal that’s up to hundreds of jobs. One of the basic chemical elements (CU in case you’ve forgotten your Periodic Table), it’s been popular for millennia. Our copper sheet plate comes in a range of thicknesses and we can cut it to size, supplying you with just the amount you need. Traditionally, copper’s long list of pluses have made it a firm favourite in industry and construction: after all, it’s soft, brilliant at conducting heat and electricity, resistant to corrosion, and even has antibacterial properties. More recently, though, the metal has come into high demand by architects and interior designers simply because it looks great. Whether you’re looking for form of function, there are limitless uses for copper sheet. UK based, we supply sheet metal to clients all over the country. When you buy copper sheet from us, there’s no minimum order. Just select the amount you need from the box above, or call us to take advantage of our free cutting service.
How is it made?
Copper ore is mined from deep underground, then taken away to be cleaned, crushed and milled. It then undergoes several chemical processes and put into an electro-refining tank for purification, before it is eventually melted down and cast into ingots, rods, or cakes. To make copper sheet, these chunks of copper are then rolled out flat.
