Introduction to Copper

Copper is a reddish metal with brown color, it is a tough, ductile and malleable material. Copper is widely used in various industries becasue it is an very good conductor both of heat and electricity.

As-machinedAs machined means the parts without any surface treatment after they get off the machines.All materialsn/aNone
Sanding and PolishingPolishing is a surface finishing process to create a smooth surface. With mechanical, chemical or electrochemical methods, polishing will reduce the surface roughness of the parts to get a bright and reflective surface.All materialsSmooth, glossy finish$$
Bead BlastingBead blasting use high speed jetted sand and iron shots to hit the surface of the workpiece. it will change the surface of part and improve the mechanical properties of part.Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Steel, Brass, Coppern/a$
Powder CoatingPowder coating is a surface finishing process that adhere dry powder on the surface of a meatal part.All metal materialsGlossy or Sand$$$
MarkingMarking is available in differnt types and different methods.All materialsn/a$$
