Copper and Living

Copper Has a Lot to Offer

Copper has excellent properties and is widely used in a variety of living scenes, such as the living room and kitchen. Many kinds of copper products are used to enhance living in ways that are not always immediately apparent.

Building Materials

Copper has long been the favorite building material for roofs and gutters.
The reaction that occurs on the surface of copper when it comes into contact with the air forms a protective coating that prevents corrosion over a long period of time.
Furthermore, copper is widely used for both interior and exterior materials by virtue of its beautiful color and luster, that produce a premium feel.

Home Electric Appliances

Copper conducts electricity and heat very well.
Taking advantage of these characteristics, copper is used for components of various home electric appliances.
For example…

Air Conditioners

Pipes/heat exchanger, fan transistor & MOS array, etc.

TVs

Coils (deflection yoke), printed circuit board, power supply IC, etc.

DVD Players

Compact switching power supply IC, motor driver IC, hall IC, etc.

Audio

Output transistor, power rectifier diode, and LED

Laptops

Printed circuit board, surface mount/low consumption current/low output voltage regulator IC, etc.

Cellular Phones

Printed circuit board, copper wires, hall IC, and secondary rectifier SBD

Game Devices

Surface mount/low consumption current/low output voltage regulator IC, battery reverse connection preventing SBD, etc.

Digital Cameras

Printed circuit board and battery reverse connection preventing diode

Kitchenware

Copper cooking tools, such as pots, kettles, and frying pans, conduct heat very well, and because of that, copper cooking tools are used heavily by professional chefs and people who love to cook.
In recent years, antibacterial goods adopting the antimicrobial property of copper, such as triangular sink tidies and dishwashing sponges, have gained popularity.

Automotive Components

A car is made from many components, and various copper products are used in its main components, especially, in today’s cars, which are increasingly multifunctional, loaded with all sorts of electronic devices.
Copper, having high conductivity, is used in these electronic devices to enhance the multifunctionality of cars.
