What is copper?

Copper is a chemical element and, in terms of cultural history, is one of the first metals used by man and is one of our oldest building materials. Nowadays copper is one of the most widely used materials for a wide range of applications. Due to its very good workability and outstanding durability, copper has enjoyed great popularity as a building material for centuries and many historic buildings are witnesses to this history and can be experience in our daily environment. 

Today, ecological considerations play a role just as important in the choice of building materials as technical and aesthetic aspects. This makes copper, with its excellent recycling properties, also a modern building material. Copper can be 100% recycled as often as desired, without any loss of quality. Thus Copper meets the requirements for a sustainable use of building materials.
