Copper Bar & Rod

S & D Non-Ferrous have an extensive stock list of the high quality copper bars that we hold in grade CW004A and CW008A. CW004A is the most widely used of the copper bars due to its versatility and therefore it is suitable for countless applications across almost all industries.

As well as being aesthetically pleasing, CW004A copper has a strong mixture of great corrosion resistance, workability and electrical and thermal conductivity. It is popular within the electrical industries for general applications such as busbars and transformer components, as well as those where high corrosion resistance is necessary such as building components.

CW008A is made up of 99.95% copper and has the highest level of electrical conductivity out of any other readily available commercial copper. Excellent thermal conductivity is a key property of CW008A copper bars and possesses forceful joining and formability attributes.

Our copper rods are available in diameters 3mm -254mm, and in imperial or metric measurements, to ensure there is always a copper bar suitable for your task. We also supply copper bar in a large range of profiles including round, hexagonal, square and flat. When you order with S & D Non-Ferrous, we are able to cut our coppers bars down to your requested length to save you the task.

We source all of our stock from UK or European suppliers to ensure our customers only receive high-quality stock that meets and exceeds industry standards. To discover more about our range of copper rods, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team today on 0121 525 5500.

Copper FAQ's

Copper was one of the first metals that was ever used by humans, and since its discovery in approximately 8000 B.C. we have found many innovative and useful ways to utilise copper metal.

Copper’s main properties and qualities include great ductility, excellent conductor of electricity and heat; it is also a malleable metal. Due to these characteristics, copper is often used in electrical components such as motors, wiring, machinery heat exchangers and electronic connecters.

Copper is also one of the primary metals used to make cooking utensils and equipment, but the copper that we probably have the most daily contact with - coins.

The density of copper in its purest form is 8.92 gm/cm3.

An easy way to determine if your copper is pure via density is to use the following method:

  • Measure the weight of your copper

  • Measure the dimensions of your copper to discover the volume (volume = L x W x H)

  • Divide the weight of your copper by the volume

  • Compare your results with the density of pure copper : 8.92 gm/cm3

If your result isn’t the same as above, this might mean your copper is not pure or that your measurements are not accurate.

 

Copper is a versatile method with a wide-ranging portfolio of properties that makes it the ideal metal to use in a variety of applications. Some of the most useful properties of copper are:

  • Good Electrical Conductivity

  • Good Thermal Conductivity

  • Corrosion Resistant

  • Ductile and Malleable

  • Easy to Alloy

  • Anti-Bacterial

  • Non-Magnetic
