A round for centuries, copper remains an important metallic element in the world today. Copper's high electrical and thermal conductivity as well as its excellent corrosion resistance makes it ideal for use in the electrical, electronics, telecommunication, and construction industries. Electrical and electronic applications already consume more than 50% of all copper and will probably place further demands in the future. The trend to achieve better performance, with more consistent and improved properties, challenges manufacturers to produce higher-purity copper and higher conductivity copper with the right combination of properties for specific applications
