Copper is distinct from other metals due to its unique, reddish-brown colouration. This aspect has resulted in its frequent use as dye. However, that’s not the only thing that makes copper special. Copper has a very soft structure. It is a great conductor of heat and electricity, making it a versatile materials for all types of electronics, including its use in conductors. It also doesn’t corrode on contact with oxygen – only contact with carbon dioxide influences it, changing its colour to green. This is not a symptom of corrosion, however – the green patina serves as an additional protective layer for copper. This durability makes it a popular to scrap metal merchants and choice for construction, e.g. for roofing. Copper is also a common element of many alloys, especially with aluminium, silver, and gold. The presence of copper greatly improves the metal’s mechanical properties.
