Why are Copper and Copper Alloys used in the manufacturing of Vessel Heads?

Copper and Copper Alloys

Copper, brass, and bronze are metals widely known as “red metals”, due to their reddish tone. While copper is a pure metal, brass and bronze are copper alloys (brass is a combination of copper and zinc; bronze is a combination of copper and tin). All three metals demonstrate phenomenal properties that make them ideal for production in metal sheets.

It is among the few metals found in nature that can directly be used for processing. It can either be used on its own or combined with other metals and alloys to form its own subgroup of alloys.

Key benefits of Copper and Copper Alloys:

  • Resistance to many forms of damage – impact, wear, and corrosion. It also maintains high level of resilience when flexed and drawn.
  • Outstanding thermal and electrical conductivity.
  • Bacterial antimicrobial resistance without degrading. It even kills bacteria that are exposed to its surface. This quality makes it ideal for use in food-safe equipment.
