General information about copper

Copper – the metal

Copper (CU, specific gravity 8.96) is a red, highly conductible and corrosion-resistant precious metal. The oldest copper tool ever found was approx. 7,000 years old. Copper was the first metal to be used to make tools, weapons and clocks. Throughout the centuries, copper has proven to be a valuable metal. A newspaper article about the recent discovery of a 16th century wreck in the Waddenzee underlines this. The old ship contained copper plates. Research showed that these copper plates were used to manufacture coins around the year 1540.

Applications of copper

Copper is found in copper mines and is nowadays mostly used in appliances and to manufacture cable or wire networks for electricity, water and information. Furthermore, copper is frequently alloyed with other metals, producing brass, yellow copper (copper + zinc) and bronze (copper + zinc + tin + lead or other elements).

Recycling of copper and determining the scrap copper price

Copper is a valuable metal. It is relatively easy to recycle copper and has thus been growing rapidly. This brings great gains for the environment, for example more than 40% energy savings compared to melting (of copper ore). The scrap copper price and our buyer purchase price are based on the LME courses.

Geelhoed is the address for companies or individuals in The Hague and surroundings who would like to sell and hand in scrap copper.
