Copper is Conductive

Conductive of Heat:

Copper has the highest thermal conductivity of any engineering metal. When good heat transfer is essential, as in heat sinks and refrigeration units, copper and brass are excellent choices. Top-quality saucepans are copper-bottomed to provide uniform heating and are, still today, the choice of professional chefs.

Conductive of Electricity:

Copper has the highest electrical conductivity of any engineering metal, with this property accounting for nearly 65% of its use. It reduces electrical energy losses, improves energy efficiency, and optimum use can reduce the lifetime operating cost. From high voltage transmission to micro-electronics, and from gigawatt generators to personal computers, in every aspect of electricity generation, transmission and use, copper is the vital, energy-efficient, reliable metal.
