The Architect's Best Reference
The Copper in Architecture Design Handbook is the go-to reference for working with all copper architectural elements. Whether in roofing, wall-cladding, or specialized applications—both exterior and interior—the Design Handbook covers it all.
What Does "Efficiency" Mean?
Less energy to produce more power. Super premium electric motors, like those that meet the NEMA Premium standard work far more efficiently than older, less efficient electric motors. This reduces operating cost and energy use over the entire life of the motor. [Photo courtesy of S.J. de Waard]
If you're a materials engineer or designer looking for a copper material with very specific characteristics, properties or chemistries, try the Advanced Faceted Alloys Search. You can narrow your selection based on dozens of mechanical, physical and composition properties that will meet your needs and exacting standards.
