What We Do
The use of copper in human history began in ancient times. People used copper in their daily lives for ornaments, weapons and handicrafts, and as civilization progressed, the need for copper increased. Today, copper, whose consumption exceeds 13 million tons, has become the second most used metal. Continuous demand increase in copper is proportional to the developments in industrialization. The place of copper in industrialization and mechanization has been accepted without question.
Its high electrical and thermal conductivity properties make it an indispensable input for power plants and conductive materials. Copper has great areas of use in cold air machinery and equipment, transport vehicles and exterior coatings due to its stainless feature. In addition to these, copper has an important place in welding works, metallurgy and bronze production and it is possible to count many other uses. The most common areas of use are; facilities related to electricity generation and transmission, construction, transportation machinery and equipment. Ten years ago, the need for copper was not seen as important, and many substitutes were proposed for copper. Materials such as aluminum, plastic, fiber-optic were used instead of copper, but there was no decrease in the need and demand for copper, and a continuous increase was observed.
As a result, it is understood that in today's world where the standard of living is constantly increasing due to economic developments, the demand for copper will increase continuously and copper will always keep its up-to-dateness even if there is a substitute material in some areas of use. It is one of the important metals involved. The reason why copper plays an important role in the industry and can be used in various fields is that it has a wide variety of properties. Among the most important properties of copper are its high electrical and thermal conductivity, its abrasion resistance, its ability to be drawn from the material and its forging, and its anticorrosive properties. In addition, its alloys are very diverse and used for different purposes in the industry.
