Building and Construction
With its outstanding properties such as durability and corrosion resistance, copper is a sought-after material in the construction sector and makes a significant contribution to conserving resources and making buildings greener.
In contrast to many other materials, copper is suitable for all areas of application in domestic installations thanks to its broad spectrum of properties: copper is not only used for drinking water and heating pipes; especially when there are high safety requirements, such as in gas supply, or when there are exceptional temperature stresses, such as in solar installations, copper is now almost exclusively used as a material for supply pipes in buildings. Other arguments in favour of using copper are its easy workability and the almost unlimited compatibility of the individual components with each other.
Very few building materials also retain their technical function and design effectiveness over a long period of time. Copper is one of them. A property that is also highly valued in architecture. Copper forms its own protective layer. With its patina, it also fully develops its design quality during the ageing process. Quality, durability and beauty are attributes with which the material has impressed for centuries. In addition, there are countless copper alloys, of which brass and bronze in particular are increasingly being used in the architectural sector. For some applications, special demands are placed on the material.
