Title: Copper is the 1st choice...

A recent survey conducted on behalf of the UK Copper Board has revealed what contractors look for most in a plumbing pipework material and which plumbing material ticks the most boxes. The results of the survey clearly show that copper still has the top spot in materials specification.

Copper came out top for:

  • Reliability         
  • Availability of products
  • Durability
  • Proven technology
  • Heat, pressure and fire resistance
  • Flow rates
  • Recyclability

The contractors surveyed considered that ‘reliability’ was the most important attribute for a plumbing material and copper easily outscored plastics. Copper is seen to be the most reliable plumbing pipework material.

Availability – next in the ranking was ‘availability’ and again copper outscored plastics. Copper tube and fittings are manufactured to European Standards.

With regards ‘durability’, contractors know that copper is a durable material, it can even take a few knocks without compromising the performance.

Proven technology – the jointing techniques available for copper are all well established in the industry.

With regards heat, pressure and fire resistance, the strength of copper enables it to withstand high pressures  and the melting point of 1083 degrees Celsius means that it is capable of operating at high temperatures.

Flow rates and recyclability – the thin wall of a copper tube means that the bore of the copper tube is larger and can carry more water/gas. The recyclability of copper is well known to plumbing contractors. Copper is 100% recyclable with no loss in properties and the obvious green credentials of copper are becoming more important.
