Therefore, it is widely used in electrical power, electronics, energy, petrochemicals, transportation, machinery, metallurgy, light and other new industries and some high-tech fields.
In this article, we look at the other properties:
- Good electrical conductor
- Good thermal conductor
- Corrosion resistant
- Easily joined
- Ductile and tough
- Easy to alloy and recyclable
