Notes on properties and use

  • chemical element
  • high temperature resistance
  • good pliability
  • best electrical conductivity of all elements
  • highest thermal conductivity of all metals
  • slightly toxic, antibacterial effect

* The relative electrical conductivity of copper has been set as being 100% IACS, with the following values derived from this for other metals:
silver = 106%, gold = 72%, iron = 17%

Applications

  • Special electronics
  • Textiles
  • Creative wires
