Copper And Brass
We offer a wide range of sizes and alloys in our Copper Division. Although the Copper segment is fairly new to the Atlas Bronze product line, we have definitely acquired an extensive and well-rounded inventory to compliment both the small machine shop needs to high-production requirements.
We offer the following Copper & Brass Alloys:
Copper alloys are metal alloys that have copper as their principal component.
- Resistance against corrosion
- Great conductivity
- Waterproof properties
- Excellent brazing and soldering properties
The major applications of copper are in electrical wires (60%), roofing and plumbing (20%) and industrial machinery (15%). Copper is mostly used as a metal, but when a higher hardness is required it is combined with other elements to make an alloy (5% of total use) such as brass and bronze.
