About Copper Cathode
Copper is considered a ductile metal with a high thermal and electrical conductivity. Copper is used as a conductor for heat and electricity. Copper is also used as a building material and in the production of various metal alloys.
Copper cathode sheets are used in the production of high purity copper and copper alloy products. Individual cathode sheets are generally manufactured in the range of 0.5m2 to 1m2 and a thickness range of 3mm to 20mm. Copper cathode is considered the primary raw material in the production of copper rod for the cable and wire industry. Copper can also be found in the production of brass, copper tubes, and found in over 450 alloys. At Abu Faisal International Private Limited, we ensure that the copper cathodes are what you are looking for when investing in copper.
Diversification: The presence of the copper commodity in an equity-only portfolio can lower the volatility.
Safe Haven: In times of global economic uncertainty and market turbulence they can retain their value.
Inflation Hedging: Commodities intrinsic value is independent from currencies. They will often hold their value, even if a currency falls during a period of inflation.
Atomic Symbol: Cu Atomic Number: 29
Copper is a chemical element with the atomic symbol Cu and atomic number 29. Copper is located in Block D, Group 11, Period 4 with an atomic weight of 63.546. Of all pure metals, only silver elemental copper has a higher electrical conductivity.
Copper in its natural state is soft, malleable, and ductile metal with a high thermal and electrical conductivity. Copper that has been freshly exposed has a pinkish-orange color. Copper is one of the few metals that can occur in nature and be used in its metallic form.
Copper does not react with water, but it does reach with oxygen to form a layer of brown-black copper oxide. Unliked the rust that forms on iron, the brown-black copper oxide protects the underly metal from corrosion.
