Since it was first used in 8000 B.C, people have discovered different uses of copper. Tools made of this element helped advance civilization during the Stone Age. Since that time, it has become an integral part of many industries.
Copper is heavily employed in the construction industry. It is commonly found in buildings because it is waterproof. This makes it suitable for cladding, roofing and plumbing. It is also applied in freestanding structures because of its light weight and durability. Lightning rods and roofs are often built of copper.
