Who Doesn’t like to be acknowledged?
Atlas Signs and Plaques was recently featured at Copper.org in their November ’10, Issue #43.
“The Copper Development Association Inc. is the market development, engineering and information services arm of the copper industry, chartered to enhance and expand markets for copper and its alloys in North America.” They are a terrific resource for and about all things copper.
Each monthly issue of their online newsletter carries articles as diverse as using copper in historical renovations to artisans utilizing the properties of copper in ways that are beautiful, thoughtful, and beyond even six thousand years of history.
After cruising the site, I picked up more information than I knew existed about copper.
Did you know that copper has been used by man for over 6,000 years? or that copper has antimicrobial properties that make it a natural for health care facilities as a prevention for hospital acquired infection? These are just the surface of the information available at Copper.org.
You can also find the world-wide standards for copper alloys, download data on copper tubing, become informed on the green properties of copper, and even find experiments and information for kids. This is one of the most informative websites I have seen, and the fact that it is about one of our favorite metals here at Atlas makes it even better.
